WSCC offering youth computer camps. 

VICTORY TOWNSHIP — West Shore Community College is offering five weeks of Black Rocket Digital Kids summer camps to help youth take their computer skills to the next level. The first week-long camp will be offered the week of June 18.

The camps, designed for ages 8- to 14-years-old, are described as a fun and exciting introduction to computer engineering, helping students learn the basics of creating a video game, producing animated films, building engineering skills and more. According to WSCC Camp Coordinator Cara Mitchell, the camps will excite and inspire young minds as they explore their interest and consider career options for the future.

“Last year, these camps were a huge success – students are excited about the skills they learn and the projects they make and then get to keep.Every program is powered by the camper’s imagination and designed to bring their ideas to life in a fun, hands-on, learning environment,” said Mitchell.

With over a decade of experience designing camps in the S.T.E.A.M fields (Science-Technology-Engineering-Arts-Mathematics), Black Rocket utilizes cutting-edge, easy-to-use, low-cost technology to foster innate student creativity and spark self- empowerment with a “make your own” philosophy.

Students in the program come away with practical real world experience, 21st century skills, career awareness, and individualized learning.

There will be two classes offered per week. Each 12-hour camp will meet Monday through Thursday for three-hour sessions; a morning session 9 a.m. to noon and an afternoon session 1 to 4 p.m. Tuition is $120 per week to attend a half day and $225 per week to attend a full day, registration fee included.

More camps will be offered the weeks of June 25-29, July 9-13, July 16-20 and July 23-27.
