We will begin camps involving CAD and block programming in the next few weeks. All of these camps will be held virtually. We want everyone to be able to make the most of social distancing by learning new skills. We hope to see you in these camps! To register and learn more, go to our Virtual Summer Camps page.

RUSH Camp - June 15 to June 18, 2020
Due to COVID-19, we were restricted from holding the in-person version of our annual RUSH Camp, a camp in the summer dedicated to the team’s members learning about the team itself, each other, and themselves. But, that did not stop us! Using Zoom, Team RUSH 27 met for six hours each day from Monday to Thursday from the comfort of our own homes. For example, one of our students led a fun team building challenge where groups had to recreate images using Google Sheets with pixel art! Returning and new students alike found delight in meeting as a team every day. The team essence of RUSH can never be lost!
