This summer we are offering week-long camp courses at the San Diego French American School in La Jolla and at UCSD. Whether or not your child has had experience coding and creating digital art, she or he will learn a lot in our one of a kind STE(A)M courses!

The first three sessions of the camps are on the beautiful campus of the San Diego French American School at the top of Mount Soledad in La Jolla. It is a gated campus with a full-time guard, and includes access to the playgrounds and athletic fields at the school during lunch and recess. Drop off is safe and easy, with supervised play time on the enclosed basketball courts before and after classes. The final session is at UCSD in the Student Center – a great venue for older children and teens.
