Summer IT Camp 2019

Summer IT Camp 2019

Summer is a time to relax and rejuvenate between academic years. It is also time for teenagers to pick up some new skills, as well as explore volunteering opportunities. IT has become a life skill and through the Summer IT Camp, RTPTCA gives an opportunity for our teenagers to learn and serve.

Millennials are more familiar with technology and sometimes a step ahead than their parents. Since quite a few of RTPTCA parents work in technology, what better way to bond with their children than dabbling in technology together.

Teenagers from middle school, high school and college are eligible to attend the camp. This year, the camp is open only for teens who are children of RTPTCA members.

Parents and other members are invited to participate in the camp to put together the camp projects, guide and carry out project work

Participants are expected to bring their own laptops. Organizers will attempt to loan laptops if possible. (Not guaranteed!)

Participants successfully completing the camp will be provided a volunteer certificate of participation from RTPTCA.

Code for Christ! Happy Hacking!

Registration Opens 01 June 2019. Stay tuned!
