OLC Robotics Summer Camp

(ages 7-13)

REGISTER HERE.

In this half-day week-long camp, students will learn about Arduino programming. Arduino is an open-source platform that is best for beginners who are looking to get started with electronics. Beginner students will learn from introduction to circuits to fundamentals of coding & enhancing their computer skills. Intermediate students will apply their skills to build an electronic game.

The camp is divided into: the Beginner Session (for those new to Arduino programming) and the Intermediate Session (for those already familiar with using Arduino). The Beginner Session is scheduled on July 22-26, 2024. The Intermediate Session is scheduled on July 29-Aug. 2, 2024.

JUNE 14 UPDATE: ADDITIONAL WEEK!

Due to popular demand, we have added another week of the Beginner Session on the first week of July! The dates will be on July 1-3 & 5, 2024 (no camp on July 4th) from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. Please look below for the schedule and payment fee.

Camp Notes:

1) For this summer camp, students will be using the ELEGOO Basic Starter Kit. The kits will be given to them on the first day of camp. They will use Orenco Learning Club-owned laptops.

2) We strongly recommend that campers have basic computer skills, meaning they can type, copy/cut, paste, and save files with minimal supervision.

3) Those who finish the Beginner Session may move on to the Intermediate Session if they wish to do so. Current OLC Arduino Club members who wish to participate will automatically be placed in the Intermediate Level camp.


Deadline to register is the Friday (4:00pm) before the start of each session.

Beginners (July 1-3 & 5) deadline is on June 28.

Beginners(July 22-26) deadline is on July 19.

Intermediate (July 29-Aug. 2) deadline is on July 26.

Waitlist & Cancellations

  • If spots are filled up, your child will be put on a WAITLIST with a position number (ex. 1st in line). You will be notified via phone or email if there are any withdrawals based on your position number. If you decline to take the spot, we will contact the next person in line on the Waitlist.
  • If, for whatever reason, your child cannot make it to the entire summer camp after being registered, please give us a call or send us an email at least 3 days before the start of camp and we'll give you a full refund (if you've already paid). The available space will then be given to the next person in line on the WAITLIST.
