Summer Programs

Summer is all about FUN and at Worcester Academy we wouldn’t have it any other way!

Everyone defines “fun” differently, though, and that’s why our Summer Programs offer something for every type of camper. Whether you’re into sports or drama, robotics or pottery, we’ve got a program for you. They all feature a seasoned and talented crew of instructors and coaches, ready to supercharge your summer experience!

  • Programs for children as young as 6 years and as old as 17 years 
  • Our Camper/Staff ratio is 8:1 
  • It’s engaging, creative, constructive, and FUN! Registration 

Registering for our summer camps is easy. We also offer discounts for children enrolling in multiple camps and for families enrolling multiple children.

All campers are required to submit a signed Consent Form and Health Form completed by their physician prior to the start of camp.

    3D DESIGN AND PRINTING
    Dive into one of technology’s fastest growing fields! Our campers will use CAD (computer aided design) technology to design objects from their imaginations. If you’re looking for design, collaboration, and implementation, this camp is for you!

    MULTIMEDIA
    Media and technology influence us all every day. Campers will use iPads, laptops, digital cameras, a green screen, and other software tools to create a real world project that digs deep into modern multimedia elements.

    ROBOTICS
    Explore the fundamental concepts of engineering through robotics! You will work at your own pace (both individually andin small groups) to learn the basics of robotics. Once the basics are complete, our campers will be ready to build and program their own robot to perform a variety of increasingly challenging tasks.

    SCIENCE
    Science campers will pursue their questions, develop investigations, and conduct experiments of interesting scientific phenomena. This camp concludes with a Scientific Symposium where campers share their findings with family and friends.

    VIDEO GAME DESIGN
    Spend the week recreating games that you have played for years or invent one of your own! It’s a collaborative atmosphere where campers help each other by providing feedback and suggestions for improving their creations. At the end of camp there will be a Game Expo where campers will share their creations.

    MAKER CAMP
    This camp is designed to promote and motivate campers to explore interests in Arts and Science through “making.” This is a hands-on, inquiry-driven experience that encourages campers to create, collaborate, and problem solve using a mix of low-tech and high-tech materials.
