Camp MultiMedia

Camp MultiMedia is a week-long summer camp that offers middle-school-aged campers the opportunity to become creators, and not just consumers, of digital media.For almost a decade, CMM has introduced campers to innovative technology that is already related to their interests as consumers of media. Importantly, while campers acquire notable technological skills (in programming or software use or hardware modification) they are also given instruction to apply aesthetic principles to the artifacts that they design. This year's specializations include: 3-D Modeling and Printing, Video Game Design, Advanced Video Game Design (Minecraft & Raspberry Pi) & Photo and Video for Social Media.

Introduction to Robotics

Campers will form teams to design and build Lego EV3 robots. Team members will work together programming their robots to solve a variety of simulated problems. For boys and girls with no previous through beginner level robotics and programming experience. This camp will build programming, design, and problem solving skills in an exciting and fun environment.

Lights, Action, Magic!

Explore science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through the understanding of magic. This camp is designed for 4th through 9th grade campers who have communication disorders, learning disabilities, or are considered at-risk/low literacy learners. Activities will include demonstrations of magic (discrepant events) that piques the campers’ curiosity and on-campus field trips such as visiting the botanical center. Magic activities will be demonstrated followed by counselors leading campers through steps to be able to explain and demonstrate the magic and the STEM concepts to others. Magic and field trip activities will utilize reading, writing, and theater to retain information learned. On Friday, each team of campers will demonstrate their favorite activity and explain how it works to an audience.
