The concept of a computer camp was introduced by Dr. Michael Zabinski when in 1977 he coined the phrase “computer camps” and founded National Computer Camps, America’s original computer camp. During the past four decades NCC has held camps coast to coast and thousands of campers have attended.
NCC’s educational philosophy reflects its passion about the vital role of computer technology in the education of today’s youth. Furthermore, we understand that a positive self-image is essential for each child’s development and that each camper is unique, with different needs, learning styles and backgrounds. Instruction at NCC is therefore individualized and cooperative, allowing campers to progress at their own pace while also engaged with peers. Our camper-to-staff ratio is 5 to 1, facilitating individualized attention. NCC takes great pride in its staff that exemplifies the camp’s philosophy. The directors are educators who have been with NCC for many years. The NCC counselors were once outstanding campers and are now great role models for the campers. The curriculum is authored by the staff and is continually revised to integrate new technologies so that it remains fresh and relevant. The curriculum endeavors to provide campers with lifelong computer skills and therefore focuses on providing a solid foundation in computer skills with emphasis on computer languages, game design, web design, and applications.
