Stafford Technical Center has partnered with area summer camp programs to provide additional summer enrichment opportunities for the Rutland County Community. Below is information about the camps Stafford hosts and registration/contact information.
YOUNG HACKS ACADEMY
Does your child have what it takes to lead in the 21st century? Young Hacks Academy is a summer camp that uses technology to develop real-world leadership skills. Blending computer programming, problem-solving, and teamwork, YHA teaches kids to build cool video games and interactive stories about big challenges facing the world today, such as climate change, homelessness, and endangered wildlife. As serious as we are about exploring technology, YHA is also committed to having fun away from the screen, moving campers outside each day for unplugged games. No programming experience is required.

Beta Masters for Ages 12-15 (Beginner-Intermediate)
Imagine a small indie game studio that has 5 days to pitch, design and build a new video game. Following a real-world production cycle, YHA Beta Masters work in teams to develop an innovative game prototype from conception to completion. Campers will use the Stencyl game engine to take their computational learning to the next level, creating original graphics and bringing them to life with Haxe coding. The program culminates with a beta release party in which friends and family act as investors.
We’ll be offering camp during the week of July 23-27.
