To keep the kids entertained and educated while school is out, Auburn Youth Programs (AYP) is hosting virtual camps for all ages this summer. AYP is an extension of Auburn University Outreach and hosts over 100 camps every summer to educate and inspire kids outside of school.

AYP has partnered with Black Rocket, a national leader in tech education, to provide opportunities for students ages 8-14 in technology, science, math, and more. These Virtual STEAM Camps will instruct on video game design featuring games such as Minecraft and Mario Kart. There are also options to learn how to encode and decode programs. These camps take place from the beginning of June to the end of August and can be taken in the morning or the afternoon. Check out pricing or register for a Virtual STEAM Camp here.

Rising juniors and seniors can test their interest in architecture with a virtual experience this summer. There are three different 3-day programs offered to give campers a chance to learn about architecture from Auburn University faculty. If architecture isn’t your child’s style, try out the Creative Writing or Healthcare Camps also offered through AYP. Visit the website to learn more about other virtual camps offered this summer.

These camps are a great way to get involved in the Auburn community and have students continue learning throughout the summer while being at home. To see what all AYP has to offer and register for a camp today, visit their website.
