Learning how to code. Developing creative ideas as a team. Presenting work to others.

The goal of Young Hacks Academy isn’t simply to provide a fun week of summer camp, but also to give students meaningful skills and knowledge that they can take with them when the week ends. We aim to equip kids with a foundation in programming, and to instill a passion for creative problem solving and a commitment to service.

Unplugged Activities
It’s not all about computers, though. It’s summer, after all. As serious as we are about exploring technology, YHA is committed to having a good time away from the screen, too. In addition to programming time inside, campers will head outside for unplugged activities like treasure hunts, riddle relays, and chain tag.

What your child will learn at YHA:

  • The core concepts of computer programming and video game design
  • How to build a technical journal
  • Strategies for efficient collaboration, critical thinking and problem-solving
  • Best practices for public speaking—ability to pitch and present work
  • Exploration of important local and global issues

YHA offers summer programs for different age groups and skill levels:


Ages 9-12



Ages 12-15



Ages 12-15


Team Elektra


Girls Ages 10-14


“Young Hacks Academy gave my son way more than a few days spent learning computer programming. He came home every day with a smile on his face and the confidence that comes with new friends and a job well done. He felt like he had found his little place in the world! Thanks Young Hacks!”  – Dylan F, Barnet, VT
