YOUTH CAMP RESOURCES
Youth Summer Cyber Camps
Make the most of summer
It is never too early– or too late– to provide technology learning opportunities for all children. One in Tech is dedicated to ensuring ALL youth are included and have access to these, regardless of gender, race, socio-economic status, culture, and other areas that at times are treated as barriers and biases. One In Tech works to open pathways for everyone to access, learn, and explore all areas of technology leading to a more robust tech workforce.
Summer months mean time out of school for most U.S.-based children, which is a perfect time for fun and exciting camps focused on technology access, safety, and skill-building. One In Tech will be offering multiple activities online in our School Break Cyber Series, but is also providing the listing below of many U.S. camps which are available throughout the summer. All opportunities in this resource should be researched thoroughly, as OIT is not facilitating these– please contact each opportunity directly.
