About Camp

Camp Culture

The X Kids Tech Camp focuses on building minds through the creative use of electronics and organic learning. We supply the latest technology, from iPads and laptops to Lego Mindstorms. Every part of our program is geared towards the future.

The X Kids walk away with the power to know that they can do anything!

Classes

Robotics
With the guidance of our robotics specialists, campers learn the importance of cooperation, teamwork and leadership by building and programming robots as part of a team. Our robotics program stresses the importance of learning organically, by discovery and experimentation.

Chess
Learning chess challenges one to think critically, strengthening reason and logic skills. No matter what age or ability level you have already, The X Kids has an enormous curriculum and near infinite challenges to help you along the path to becoming a chess master.

Game Design & Mobile App Creation
Multimedia Fusion makes learning game design incredibly easy and fun! During their first week campers will make their own Mario or Pokemon Game. Once campers have mastered the basics they can move on to making any kind of game they want, or if they prefer they can design mobile apps. At the end of the week campers can bring in their updated mobile devices and have their game or app put onto it.

The X Kids camps are great for all kids, ages 4-16.

Parrot Jumping Sumo is a responsive bot with a strong personality which rolls, rushes, zig-zags, circles, takes turns at 90°. In a flash, it leaps up to 80 cm in height! Its ultra sophisticated technology enables more precise turns than any radio-controlled car.

iPads

We have a dozen iPads at The X Kids, all loaded with the latest and most fun educational games. In addition to the latest apps from the best developers, we are constantly designing new educational games of our own to give our campers the biggest advantages in high-tech, digital learning. Campers learn math, reading, writing, spelling, and even chess in this unique environment. The hands-on nature of this equipment means the iPad learning station is ALWAYS FUN!

Chess

Chess is a fun way to learn concepts of strategy and planning ahead. We teach campers of all skill levels how to think about the complexities of this ancient game. Good sportsmanship and competitiveness are important parts of the X Kids education.
