DMA Technology Summer Camps atBryn Mawr CollegeJuly 13th – August 7th


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, Digital Media Academy offers the best of both worlds. Learn on the Bryn Mawr College campus, eat in the same dining halls as Bryn Mawr undergrads and students ages 12+ can even stay overnight. Digital Media Academy selected Bryn Mawr not only because of its mission of rigorous education and expansive liberal arts offerings, but also because of its scenic location near the downtown Philadelphia area.

Check out Pembroke Hall, Erdman Hall dormitory or the Marjorie Walter Goodhart Theater with its vaulted ceilings, towers, carvings and ornamental ironwork designed in the Gothic Revival style. See Cambrian Row with its impressive Victorian homes. The campus also features several libraries with more than one million volumes.
