Computer Camp

Dept. of Mathematics and Computer Science Valdosta State University Offers Computing Summer Camps for Middle and High School Students

This year's camps will have newer activities and will be as much fun as last year: two 1-week-long non-residential day camps for uprising middle school students and two 1-week-long non-residential day camps for uprising high school students during June and July 2011. The good news is that, the fees for this year's camps are lower compared to last year. Moreover, we also have some early-application and multiple-child discounts. We will also offer a limited number of need-based scholarships.

All the information about this year's camps are available at www.valdosta.edu/computingcamp

We hope you will consider enrolling your child to our camps this year. In order for us to continue offering these camps beyond 2011, we need to be able to run this year's camps at full capacity. So I also request you to spread the word out about the camps to other potential campers and their parents.
Best Regards
