America’s Original Computer Camp® Since 1977
The exciting high tech virtual and traditional computer camp for kids offers much more than coding, web design, software, and video game design. In 2021 NCC offers a virtual online camp and an in-person camp in Connecticut.

How did you hear about NCC? "I did a web search for computer camps and then spoke to the director. I was very impressed with the camp's philosophy and especially its unique curriculum. I also called several families on the camp's reference list. After that the decision was easy." Read What Parents Say

Fun and Learning
Computer camp is not a summer school, but rather a place where learning and fun are rolled into one and where the campers’ self-esteem is of foremost importance.
What distinguishes NCC from other camps is that NCC provides campers with life-long computer skills. As its primary focus NCC provides a solid foundation in computing.
As part of the Computer+Sports option, campers may select basketball, soccer or ultimate frisbee. Optional recreation such as swimming and kickball is also available.
Many of the camp counselors are former campers who have been associated with the camp for many years and are excellent role models for the campers.
