2021 IT Careers Camps

About IT Careers Camps

IT Careers Camps are summer camps designed to expose students to the incredible opportunities in IT while introducing them to the life and culture at local universities! Traditional IT Careers Camps are designed to expose students to a broad variety of IT skills, while our themed camps cover specific skills like cybersecurity or game design. Regardless of the camp, students will receive visits from influential companies in Cincinnati, learn IT skills in partnership with local universities, and make new friends from around the region! Camp sessions will run throughout the month of July, with in-person, virtual, or two-day sessions offered.

Due to COVID-19 concerns, all camps are day camps this year (no overnight stay). Lunch will be included for all camps.

Scholarships are available for interested students worried about the cost. Interested parties should fill out the provided form for more details.
