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. Registration is required.

Monday, June 12, 2017 - 9:30 am to Friday, June 16, 2017 - 4:00 pm

Explore science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through the understanding of magic. This camp is designed for 4-12 grade students who have communication disorders, learning disabilities or are considered at-risk/low literacy learners. Students will be assigned to teams of similar aged peers. Activities 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, campers will demonstrate their favorite activities and explain how they work to their families. Registration is required.
