Overview

Are you interested in spending your summer with kids, exploring and learning together? Do you consider yourself to be a role model, capable of leading, supervising, encouraging, and mentoring campers? Camp Voyager is a STEM technology-based camp for children aged 9-15 that also includes classic camp activities such as high and low ropes courses, evening campfires, and team building and group games. Spend your morning in the woods encouraging your campers to reach new heights on our brand-new Adventure Wall. Have a great time leading activities like our Leap of Faith, Zipline, Giant Swing, and Teams Course elements. Then take it indoors for camp-wide Nerf battles, VR experiences with Oculus Quests, marathon Super Smash Bros competitions, and tournaments using our all-new DJI Robomaster robots. Every day will provide new opportunities for our campers and counselors to engage with awesome cutting-edge tech. All programs are offered in a safe, supervised environment where campers can explore new areas of interests with encouragement from trained counselors and staff. You can take a look at our camp by going to our website at http://voyagersummer.camp.
