Overview of Kids Digital U Summer Programs & Camps

Thank you so much for your interest in our summer programs for your child/children. Our legendary 3D Summer Tech Camp has been ranked the #1 summer STEM program for kids aged 10 – 18 in Greater Boston for the last 2 years in a row by HulaFrog. Just west of Boston in the beautiful town of Needham Massachusetts, we offer weekly, bi-weekly and 4 week summer programs in computer programming, video gaming, 3D everything (and we literally mean 3D everything) and the digital arts. No program in the Greater Boston area has invested in advanced digital, interactive, three dimensional and virtual/augmented reality technologies for kids to our scale. We also maintain partnerships with a number of similar programs overseas and welcome students from all over the world in our summer programs. Specifically, over the coming summer of 2019 we will host groups of students aged 14 to 18 from Beijing, China, New Dehli, India and South America. We also offer “Camp America” where for over 2 weeks students come from all over the world to have a blast in our 3D Summer Tech Camp by day and experience American culture via the great city of Boston in the evenings (Red Sox game, Museum of Science visit, the beaches of Cape Cod and/or Lake Winnipesaukee over the weekend etc.). We of course offer our summer programs over the summer months of June, July & August. We also offer our 5 day camps over the February & April public school vacations. If you are serious about an investment in a tech program for your child or children, we strongly encourage you to take the time to compare the attributes of our programs and camps versus any like program in the Greater Boston area (or the country for that matter). You will undoubtedly learn we offer an overwhelming value proposition. We offer the lowest equipment and teacher to student ratio by a factor of at least 2X if we are full (but usually 3X). One like program we know of boasts about an 8 to 1 teacher to student ratio. We’re at least 4 to 1 (again when we are full). Our summer program and camp tuitions are also 2/3’s the cost of the #2 and #3 ranked Boston area programs (behind us at #1). Again please take the time to verify the attributes noted below for yourself. The best part? Read the feedback on social media for yourself. Kids aged 10 – 18 love learning at Kids Digital U!

Building Websites With WordPress

WordPress is an incredible and as important free tool to build fully functioning websites. In our WordPress camp students will learn how to build a website from scratch using WordPress and free only plug-ins. Today 85% of website visits are done via mobile device. Hence we teach strategy for all devices (PC, tablet & mobile). Towards the end of the week students will have access to all of our commercial (and very fun) plug-ins to see what is possible with today's modern browsers. This camp is a must for students interested in website development.

3D Character Design & Animation

There is no program in the country (yes the country) that has invested in advanced motion and facial capture technologies for three dimensional character animation than Kids Digital U. We were a pioneer in character design & animation (including a contributor, and ultimately benefactor of, a KickStarter campaign for Perception Neuron). If your child/children are even only remotely interested in 3D character design & animation you must consider this program. This program is a blast too.

3D for Virtual & Augmented Reality

In this camp students learn to build a physics enabled three dimensional video game for the HTC Vive virtual reality platform. This is perhaps the most fun learning program we offer (and quite popular during the traditional school year). This is now fast becoming one of our more popular summer programs as well. Your kids will learn to build stunning games for the HTC Vive virtual reality platform including working bowling & horse shoe toss games. The technology is shockingly cool.

Camp America - Two Week Summer Study Abroad Here in the USA

Attend Our Award Winning STEM Camp by Day & Experience American Culture at Night

We are pleased to announce the second year of our Summer Study Abroad program for students visiting from outside of the United States. Kids Digital U is located just outside Cambridge, MA, home to some of the finest universities in the world including Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (or “MIT”) and Boston University. Last year was an enormous success.

Students have a blast attending our award winning 3D Summer Tech Camp by day and enjoying American culture via all that the Greater Boston area offers in the evenings and over one amazing weekend. For example, one night we take the kids to the legendary Fenway Park to watch a Boston Red Sox baseball game, tour the world famous Museum of Science in Cambridge, MA and, among other things, experience the Boston Duck Tours. Over the weekend students can either enjoy the beaches of beautiful Cape Cod or have a blast via the ultimate in New England fresh Lake Winnipesaukee. Kids enjoy the company of our staff, local students attending our camps and of course others from around the world. Click the LEARN MORE button below or call us to arrange a virtual tour.

Why Kids Digital U Summer Programs

We genuinely encourage you to review these points in enormous detail with any like program you may be considering for your child/children.

1. Commitment to our program. We’re here all year while other area 3D tech camps, headquartered out of state, rent space for the summer and hire local public school teachers to run their summer programs. While we think the world of public school teachers we are personally & professionally committed to our success. They are not. Simply put we are certain we have more at stake than our peers.

2. Quality of our curriculum. We are full time developers and digital artists. We’ve invested enormous resources developing our programs over the years. Our staff has experience developing 3D, gaming & virtual content for major US corporations including Disney, EA Sports and medical device manufacturers. We come from the real world. This is why we were ranked the #1 3D program for kids in the state.

3. Lowest teacher to staff ratio (by far). We’ve never been more than 1 teacher for every 4 campers (we’re usually 1 for every 3). One like program actually boasts about their 1 teacher for every 8 students as their competitive advantage. Ask around. We provide plenty of personal attention to every student.

4. Lowest tuitions (by far). One program we know of charges $2,300 for two weeks tuition (versus ours at $1,490). This program hires staff from the same pool of candidates we sometimes employ and does not nearly offer the advanced systems we do nor provide nearly the personal attention as Kids Digital U (read #3 as well).

5. Professional digital media/3D projects. Kids receive non-commercial licenses to literally hundreds of professional 3D design & animation projects for their personal use. There is no summer program in New England such an extensive library of digital content.

6. We love teaching kids. Newton Animations/Kids Digital U was founded almost by accident. Our founder was looking for a way to invest productive time with his pre-teen and teenage daughters. It was so personal and successful others kids asked if they could learn using our exact syllabus.

7. Most advanced technologies. There is no program in the country that has invested in advanced interactive, three dimensional, virtual, augmented and digital technologies for kids to our scale. There is no program that has incorporated these systems into their curriculum either. We’ve invested over $200,000 in our systems to date. No where but in our programs will your kids have access to such cutting-edge technologies.

8. Largest 3D printing lab (for kids) in the state. We love our MakerBot 3D printing lab. Your child/children will share one 3D printer with at most one other student. We can do this because we can rent out our machines during the traditional school year.

9. Cinema 4D student licenses. All students receive an 18 month student license to Cinema 4D, generally considered the best 3D software in the world. We are the only accredited Cinema 4D program (for kids) in all of New England.

10. Breadth of technologies & disciplines. We offer much broader opportunity than any like camp. Some students come here to experience & learn virtual reality but then learn they prefer motion capture. Kids can do as little or as much as they please and change their minds daily. We love it.

11. Computer processing power. We maintain one of the largest private render farms with hundreds of processing cores to produce animation in minutes that would take days via a typical personal computer at home.

12. Our history of delivering more than promised. Every year we surprise our students with a large, unannounced investment in a new technology at the start of every summer. The summer of 2018 will was no different. Our students just love our new light painting technology. Just wait until you see what we have in store for 2019. Stay tuned.
