About Camp TechTerra Don't miss out on coding, drones, and robotics.
Camp TechTerra offers programs for students that help them explore the natural world in makerspace communities through coding, digital storytelling, robotics, making, and digital devices. Sharing, connecting and collaborating are integral to these experiences. Using our innovative Camp TechTerra curriculum, students are taught the process of computational thinking within an environment that honors safety, choice, exploration and fun.
Camp TechTerra and the TechTerra curriculum, inspired by Maker Education and Project Based Learning, were developed by Susan Wells, a veteran public school educator and EdTech innovator.

Camp TechTerra Testimonials
My son loved Camp Tech Terra! Once intimidated by technology, he left camp with a new confidence and curiosity. The camp provided a lot of outside fun and hands on nature exploration for my active learner. The staff created an environment that welcomed students of various ages, backgrounds, and experience. We will be back next year! Courtney Mills Parent of Camp TechTerra camper Former Teacher
My daughter has enjoyed the Camp Tech Terra programming so much, she requested it for her 10th birthday! The Tech Terra team creates such an engaging experience, introducing concepts from coding to color theory, machine thinking to collaborative problem-solving. But the kids don't realize they're learning anything: they just have a great time! Lauren Walker Parent of Camp TechTerra camper Senior Content Strategist Our three children (ages 5, 6 1/2 and 9 years old) have attended the Camp TechTerra summer camps and after school programs over the past two years and LOVE them. Director and founder, Susan Wells, drawing on her 30 years of experience as an educator, has created the ultimate learning experience for children of all ages. Camp TechTerra is engaging, creative, unique and FUN. In just one week of camp, our children designed and built robots, constructed lego communities, filmed iMovies, learned to code, explored and studied the outdoors, cooked food in solar ovens, and more. Susan’s staff of professional teachers are wonderful with the children, challenging them and caring for them and their individual learning styles. We are always amazed to see and hear what our children learn at camp each day. We highly recommend Camp TechTerra and are looking forward to another fun camp this year.
