No prior coding experience is necessary
Interested in having your camper stay for the full day?
Check out our afternoon session of Creative Coding with Scratch! If your camper stays for the full day, we will be providing supervision from 12pm-1pm between the end time and start time of the two camps. During this time it is recommended that your camper bring a packed lunch to eat. We’ll also be playing videos during the break or depending on the number of campers (and on the weather) we’ll be going outside so they can eat their lunch while getting some fresh air.
Where is the camp located?
The tech camps are held on the campus of Daemen College on Main Street in Amherst, NY. Facilities include the Business Building which houses several computer labs on campus.
How many children in each camp?
Just like a regular class, we ensure a good adult-to-child ratio. Depending on age, this ranges from 1:8 to 1:10, so most camps are maxed out at 19 children. Daemen Tech Camps reserves the right to cancel a camp should enrollment fall below five (5) children.
What is the refund policy?
Refunds will be given only as a result of injury or illness. The refund will be based upon a percent of the daily loss, less a $25 non-refundable fee. A $25 processing fee will also be charged for any cancellation.
How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
