Camps

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. The various camps cover some basics of coding, software testing and other subject areas within the technology industry. Our hope is that these Hy-Tech Camps will help remove barriers that may have prevented students from exploring their areas of interest.

When are Hy-Tech Camps offered?

Hyland will be offering several Hy-Tech Camps this summer. Camps occur in the evening from 5-8PM at Hyland’s headquarters in Westlake, OH. 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?

Students entering 7th through 12th grades in Fall 2019 are eligible to sign up. Some of these camps have been offered in past years and the content hasn’t changed. If you have attended one in the past, please do not sign up for it again in order to allow new students a chance to participate.
