University of California, San Diego Summer Camps

World-Class STEM & Tech Courses For Kids & Teens

UC San Diego Tech Camps

Digital Media Academy has been offering tech summer camps for kids and teens in San Diego since 2004. Students have an opportunity to experience college life at the picturesque beachside campus of UCSD, one of our most esteemed locations. In modern tech classrooms, students can learn to build a world in Minecraft, make their own short film, design a video game, and more.

Staff and students love teaching and learning at our UC San Diego summer camp. Our staff members promote diversity and often collaborate across tech disciplines, both in the classroom and in their own professional pursuits. Elementary, middle school and high school students will meet like-minded peers as they work on creative projects like developing a new app, coding their own website, or finishing a film project.

UCSD Campus Facts

UCSD was founded in 1960 and quickly rose to prominence as a research institution. $1 billion annually is used to further our knowledge on projects researching topics such as climate change, biotechnology, new computer programming languages, oceanography, and more. Research done at UCSD led to the development of Pascal, which in turn led to the development of Java (a coding language we all know and love). UCSD isn’t just a hub for scientific progress as it also is a home for many artists. The campus features the Geisel Library, named and inspired by the works of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss.

The 30,000 students who go there have a wide variety of opportunities available to them as UCSD offers 125 undergrad degree programs and 75 graduate degrees. The university inspires excellence in all who step foot on its campus.
