Summertime is Camp Time, and Florida Tech is the Place to Be

Over 100 Camps Offered, from Academics to Sports

MELBOURNE, FLA. — Whether for the mind, the body, or a bit of both, Florida Institute of Technology is offering more than 100 camps this summer with enough variety to excite even the pickiest youngster.

Camps in academics, sports, art and more start in May and run until July or August. Registration is now underway at

There are exciting new camps in each major category, and plenty of returning favorites.

New this year in academic camps is Applied Engineering. The weeklong camp, held both June 13-17 and July 11-15 for children 16 and older, teaches the hands-on skills participants will need to turn designs into full-size prototypes. They’ll learn welding, computer-aided drawing and manufacturing software, and more – and they’ll put their new skills to the use creating a remote-controlled RC hovercraft.

Returning academic camps include Summer Flight Camp with sessions June 13-17 for 7th-9th graders and June 27-July 1 for 10th-12th graders, and School of Rock, where Florida Tech faculty and local musicians help participants with voice, guitar, bass, drums or keyboards. For ages 12-18, the camp runs – or should that be jams? – July 11-15.

New to the sports camp lineup for 2016 is the Florida Tech Triathlon Clinic. Guided by the university’s swim team coaches, this camp is open to all skill levels and will focus on improving technical and endurance skills for all lengths of triathlons. Topics such as racing strategy, training methods, and technique will be discussed. The camps will be held the week of May 20 and again on June 25.

Camps centered on basketball, soccer, volleyball, softball, tennis, football, swimming, softball, lacrosse and even snorkeling will be offered once again.

If summertime is more about holding a paintbrush than ball, Foosaner Art Museum’s unique summer art camps emphasize learning through direct observation of art and thoughtful art activities designed by professional art instructors and inspired by current exhibitions and the permanent collection.

Offered under the theme “Faces and Places,” this year’s art camps will allow participants to experience the traditional and the modern when it comes to exploring and making art. Themed camps are held in the morning, and there is a concentration on specific media in afternoon sessions. Campers may opt for a half-day program or an all-day program.

And among “external” camps being held at Florida Tech – traditional favorites include Codecraft Lab and Wellspring Florida – there are new offerings, including Florida Magic Camp. Held June 11-17 for ages 14 to 25, this camp will treat participants to daily live magic shows and include magician-led, hands-on workshops and an end-of-the-week show and competition for campers.
