Lavner Camps!


We are excited to offer at Stuart Country Day School our extremely popular Technology camps: Robotics & Technology, Video Game Programming & Design, and Minecraft 3D Innovation. Whether you are a beginner with no experience or have a working understanding of the dynamic programs used at camp, our curriculum is structured so that campers are appropriately challenged with fun and exciting projects based upon their age and ability levels. At these Technology camps, campers receive both group and individual attention, and are amazed at how quickly they improve their skills and knowledge! Campers who are more advanced and familiar with these programs are encouraged to use their imaginations to create entirely new robots, levels of games, and projects, using the skills and principles taught at camp. These camps are great for one week or multiple week stays since robots, video games, and projects are never repeated!
