If you are like me, you are counting the minutes until Winter Break, and with three weeks of day camps at Techie Factory, there is something for every young techie! If your school break or travel plans fall in the middle of a week, don't worry - Techie Factory planned for that. Click here to view their winter camps and to register.

As an added bonus, all camp activities are able to be either extended over several days, or brought to conclusion, so no techie has to leave with projects undone. They will prorate camps, too, if you contact them and let them know more about your schedule and days you can attend, they will work with your schedule.  

One more thing, they are conveniently located in University Park on Lover's Lane above Eatzi's
