DMA Technology Summer Camps atHarvard University

For students who want a pre-collegiate experience at a college they’re interested in attending or who just want to get away for the summer and explore a new city, we offer you the best of both worlds. Learn on the Harvard University campus, and, when you’re not in class, safely explore the surrounding area.

We selected Harvard not only because of its superior reputation as a liberal arts and public research college, but also because of its superior campus location in scenic Cambridge, Massachusetts, near Boston.

The main campus is centered on famous Harvard Yard in central Cambridge, a unique community with a strong mix of cultural and social diversity, intellectual vitality and technological innovation. That campus also extends into the surrounding Harvard Square neighborhood, with noteworthy restaurants and shops. Harvard’s 80-plus libraries, numerous museums, diverse landscapes and stately architecture set the tone for this world-class learning experience.
