At this computer camp, you won't just learn the basics; you'll dive deep into the inner workings of computer hardware. Imagine understanding how disk drives hum, demystifying the magic behind RAM and unraveling the secrets of operating systems.

But wait, it gets better—dive in with immersive experiences like disassembling and reassembling hardware and even installing virtual machines!

As if that weren't enough, our networking sessions will propel you into the realm of creating small networks, troubleshooting like a pro and crafting secure computer networks. You'll unravel the mysteries of the internet, switches, routers, wiring and more.

But this camp is not just about tech wizardry. Dive into daily devotionals and Bible challenges that will not only strengthen your faith but also help shape a robust biblical worldview.

Our passionate camp instructors will show you how your newfound tech skills can be a vessel for glorifying God. Get ready for a tech fusion camp where knowledge meets excitement and faith meets innovation.
