  • Announcing our Programming Directors for 2018! 03/05/2018
    We are very excited to introduce our Programming Directors for 2018! Our Programming Directors don’t just oversee our Programming program, they also oversee our Robotics rooms and Circuitry circuses (circi?)(nah.) All our Programming Directors are computer science experts! When something is not working properly, they are able to come up with solutions beyond ctrl+alt+del, which […]
  • TIC attends National Camp Conference! 02/26/2018
    When you think “Summer camp” you probably don’t think of words like “conference”, “professional development”, or “expert in their field”. That is probably because summer camp is fun and all those other words would sound super weird if you inserted them into a camp cheer. (“1, 2 Conference for you! 3,4 career growth some more!!”) The […]
  • 2018’s Leadership & Training Directors!! 02/06/2018
    TIC’s Leadership & Training Director (or LTD) is an elusive being that roams the campus doing basically everything you didn’t know needed to happen to make each and every day of camp epic. Many people ask, “but what does the Leadership & Training director DO?!?!?!” Well, that is a difficult question because the answer is […]


Does your camper love video games? Do they enjoy thinking critically and creatively? In programming, they will learn the tools to bring their imaginations to life through specific commands, systematic analysis, and problem solving. We offer a variety of languages, including LOGO, Python, C++, and JAVA, depending on the camper’s experience level and age. Campers are not just limited to making computer games. They can create drawing programs, sports games, mazes, puzzles, mock databases — wherever their imagination takes them!

Campers typically begin with LOGO, learning the foundation of programming and how to execute commands such as if statements and loops. As they progress, campers can explore a series of more complex languages, deepening their skills in computer programming. Older, more experienced campers have the opportunity to explore advanced programming that focuses on more industry standard languages, preparing them for college and/or a future in the field.

Our teaching ratio is 4:1, and campers work in pairs on one computer, collaborating to enhance learning. Through experience, we know the personal interaction that occurs between kids and computers has positive benefits:  it can improve math and critical thinking skills, reading ability, and attitudes toward learning. Guided exploration on a computer can also hone intellectual skills, teach problem solving, and improve the ability to communicate.
