Hy-Tech Camp FAQs

What are Hy-Tech Camps?

We believe it’s important to expose students to different areas of computer science at a young age. Each Hy-Tech Camp covers a specific technology topic, providing students in-person guidance at every session. They are designed to introduce students to a wide range of technology topics in order to help them find out what they like to do, or even what they may not like to do.

When and where are Hy-Tech Camps offered?

Hyland will be offering Hy-Tech Camps virtually this summer. Camps occur in the evening from 4:00-6:00pm ET via the Zoom video conferencing platform. Once you complete registration, you will receive a confirmation e-mail. E-mail reminders with additional information will be sent a week before the camp.

Who is eligible to sign up for Hy-Tech Camps?
