Shh...don't tell them that they'll learn something; they'll be having too much fun to notice! Space is extremely limited and these camps fill up fast so we recommend registering early.

Those registering for more than one child or more than one program will receive a 10% discount on their registration with the EXCEPTION of the BYTE CAMP and the SPANISH camps. The BYTE CAMPS and the SPANISHMANIA CAMPS are exempt from the discount opportunity as it is an outside company offering this camp.
