The 411 on Tech Camps for kids

The next generation of high-tech summer camps offer unique opportunities that may make adults wish that they themselves could go.

The number of day camps has grown by about 90 percent in the last 20 years, according to statistics released by the American Camp Association. The ACA reports that more than 10 million children annually attend summer camp and that 12,000 day and residential camps exist in the U.S.

Tech camps, camps with a bent toward science or technology,
are on the rise with a 16 percent increase in computer camps in
particular since 2000. Subjects range from human anatomy to robotics to
Flash animation.
