Youth Summer Camp

Get ready for a great summer!

We are excited to announce the 2019 CCC Youth Summer Camp (YSC) lineup! Back by popular demand: Studio Art, 3D Video Game Design and Intro to Electrical Engineering. New to the lineup: Graphic Design and Intro to Computer Vision. This year, YSC will run five weeks and feature two one-week art camps and four two-week tech camps. Camps are open to youth ages 12–18*.

Registration is open and closes one week before each camp is scheduled to start (or when full). Classes fill up quickly, so be sure to register early!

Graphic Design


NEW!

Graphic Design

Graphic design is the art of using the elements of design to communicate visually. In this class, we'll learn about Graphic Design and how to use the principles and elements of design to explore our creative side. Each day, we'll roll up our sleeves and tackle new, hands-on projects—playing with color and lines, type and images both on the computer and with our hands!

Intro to Computer Vision


NEW!

Intro to Computer Vision

Computer Vision is the art of teaching machines not just to see the world around them, but to understand it. This art is essential to the robots, smartphones, and vehicles of tomorrow. In this class, we'll learn the basics of computer vision, including image capture, fundamental filtration techniques, live video processing, shape detection, facial detection, motion detection, edge detection, and more. These skills will be taught using Python and a Pi Camera on the Raspberry Pi platform. Students will walk away with an understanding of the basic techniques of computer vision and a viable testing platform for future ideas!
