Summer Camp 2020

Westchester county’s original destination for the computer savvy kid. Learn something new and create something amazing.

Pro instructors who are kids at heart

Our instructors share the same interests as the kids they teach. Love of teaching, learning, and of course, all things technology.

The DAE culture

We teach awesome things, but also like to have fun. We hold monthly game nights, a Dungeons & Dragons Club and competitions throughout the year!

Anti-Bully Environment

We take bullying very seriously to make sure that students feel like they can be themselves.

Hands-on, Project Based

Students get hands-on access to top of the line digital arts tools and technologies that we have in our facility.

1:6 Teacher to Student Ratio

Our classes are small so that the instructor balance varying skill levels. If a class is more than 6-8 students, an intern is there to assist.

How does summer go?

Our summer structure is flexible so you can worry less about stressful planning! We understand that summer can be a busy time, so you have the option of choosing the first week of a session or both weeks! Need your child to attend the full day? Not a problem. Students can be registered for both a morning and afternoon class, for example, they can take 3D Printing in the AM, and Python Programming in the PM. Don’t forget, you can now add Fitness and Fun in the afternoon!

Morning class: 9:30am – 12pm
Lunch hour: 12 – 1pm (pack a nut-free lunch)
Afternoon class: 1pm – 3:30pm

Early drop-off ($10 per day): 8am – 9am
Late pick-up ($10 per day): 4pm – 5pm

My daughter was definitely inspired by what she learned. She came home animated & excited to keep learning!

My son told us repeatedly that these weeks were the best camp of his life! He was encouraged to be creative and the teachers were so flexible in helping him achieve that. Thanks for an awesome summer!

I researched all other national camps and I’m so glad I went with something more homegrown and local. It was more intimate and The DAE has superior customer service.

Professional staff and enthusiastic teachers. Mr. Kissner is a wonderful resource and guides families with passion, knowledge and integrity.
