F.A.Q. 

For summer 2021 we have decided to remain virtual and will continue to offer virtual camps and programs moving forward. Now, more than ever, learning about coding and technology is a great way to teach kids and teens valuable skills for tomorrow!

Will you be offering in-person camps as well for summer 2021?

Our plan for summer 2021 is to continue with our Virtual Camps. There may be opportunities that come up in the summer to host some in-person workshops. The best way to keep informed is by by signing up for our Newsletter. You can sign up – just scroll to the bottom of this or any other pages in our website.

What is the ratio of Instructor-to-campers in an Artech Virtual Camp?

We have an Instructor-to-camper ratio of one-to-six or better in both our virtual camps and in-person camps.

What size are the camp groups?

Most camps can accommodate a maximum of 12 campers with two Instructors. Some camps may have as few of 4-6 campers with one Instructor.

Are the Virtual Camps “live” or are they pre-recorded?

Our Virtual camps are “live” and lead by Instructors. We also have areas on our website that campers will have access to. These areas contain supplemental videos, tutorials, quizzes and other materials. Campers can choose to access these between class sessions. However, they are not required to do so.

How long is a camp?

Most of our camps are scheduled to run for one week from Monday to Friday. A few of our camps are scheduled to run for two weeks, Monday to Friday.

How long is each day’s session?

Each day’s session runs for 2 hours, 2.5 hours or 3 hours. The length of time is related to the campers’ ages.

Are breaks given during the camp sessions?

Yes, breaks are given. Normally breaks run from 5 minutes to 15 minutes, depending on the age of the campers and discretion of the Instructor(s). Breaks are a great time for campers to get to know each other better. And also a time for the Instructors to get to know more about each of the campers: their interests, what kind of games they like to play and what type of things they would like to learn.

Can I register my child for just one or two days?

Campers are building projects that evolve in complexity from day to day. Some projects can take a few days or a full week to complete. This makes it difficult for us to accept campers for individual days. We do however offer one day workshops. These will be posted at a later date.

What if my child misses a day or part of a day?

Depending on the child and complexity of the material or lesson, we will arrange to have one of the Instructors work on-on-one with the child.

What if I have to cancel?

A full refund less administrative costs of $25 (per camp registration) is refunded if cancellation notice is given at least one month prior to the start date. A 50% refund (per camp registration) is given if cancellation notice is sent in at least two weeks prior to the start date. No refunds are given after that.

My child is very shy and does not want to turn on their webcam during the session. Will that be a problem?

We do encourage all campers to participate in the camps. Part of the camp experience is hearing about what other campers are doing and seeing what other campers are doing.

My child went to a Roblox camp last summer. Will you be doing the same things again this summer?

For each camp we plan different projects, especially as we offer more than one Roblox camp during the summer months. If you or your child has a concern, please contact us and we would be happy to discuss this with you.

Please note that each summer we update and revise many of our camps and offer a selection of NEW camps as well! 

Virtual Sessions

All of our virtual classes have small class sizes and live instructors to ensure that all of our campers and students are able to succeed and thrive with remote learning!

Camps normally run for one or two weeks Each day’s session runs for 2-3 hours.

Our virtual camps follow a daily schedule with presentations, a mixture of instructional and project related activities and break times!
