Connecticut Camps

The following camp directory lists some of the summer camps for K-12 students in engineering throughout the United States and Canada that are and were previously offered. The directory lists camps that have been hosted by Universities and research centers in the past. Please note that all camps may not be offered every year and that new camps and programs are currently being added. Old or unsuccessful programs are always being eliminated or modified. A substantial number of programs specifically target minorities, women, and other groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences. The programs offered change frequently, and this database is not comprehensive. This is only meant to be a guide to aid your search for engineering education preparation tools. Many of the programs offer scholarships and may have application deadlines as early as January. If you are interested in a program, please email, call or write the organization listed for an application and the most current information available.

Upperline Code Summer Programs
Upperline Code is dedicated to building fun, rigorous and collaborative programming classes for high school students. We run workshops, after-school classes, and summer programs throughout New York and Connecticut to teach students how to code. Our students build web and mobile applications using the same tools that professionals are using throughout the tech industry (Ruby, HTML, CSS, SQL, Javascript, iOS development). We push our students to build real apps, learn coding best-practices, and get exposure to the technology sector through guest speakers and company visits. Our summer classes are running form June through August in New York City and Greenwich, CT.
