The World’s Best STEM Summer Camps for Kids & Teens
Launched by tech educators at Stanford University, Digital Media Academy camps are where students go to get their start as designers, developers, programmers, engineers, animators, musicians, and filmmakers.
STEM Learning Pathways for Students of All Ages
Choose from over 60+ courses along six DMA Learning Pathways for students age 6 – 17
“Both of my children have attended the DMA summer sessions and not only have they had a wonderful time, learned new applications, and honed their skills in programming, but they came away from their experiences with a greater sense of self and their capacity to take on new challenges. I cannot give enough credit to the instructors and staff of DMA for providing a warm and caring environment in which creativity and rigor in problem solving can thrive. Our whole family highly recommends DMA!”

Tech Education is Our Tradition
Born at Stanford University in 1999 and given accreditation by Stanford University Continuing Studies in 2002, Digital Media Academy has been designing, developing, and delivering STEM education to students of all ages ever since. From day one, we have set out to provide world-class tech education that sets students up for future success in learning and creating.
We believe that the best learning happens while creating. We focus on cultivating the most important traits from our students: creativity, empathy, and the ability to solve problems by immersing them in a high-energy, hands-on, collaborative learning experience.
