For a full day of screen time parents can feel good about, check out the state-of-the-art technology camps offered at Pixel Academy. With various locations and tools for exploring the new frontiers of computers and programming, children can get hands-on experience working with 3-D printers, developing and creating video games, and Volume, a cutting-edge virtual- reality experience that requires no goggles or headset. Campers new to programming might be drawn to the Minecraft coding class, which teaches students how to modify the game just like the YouTube stars. Ages 7–14.
P.S...Got older ones? Teens ages 15 and up can apply to be a conselor in training and spend their summer learning future job skills while having an awesome time working with kids.
