The ComputerCorps "Every-Home-A-Classroom" TM TechCamp is an annual summer program for youth 10-15 years old.   For the past 14 years, this 2-week program gives kids the opportunity to learn about computer recycling, testing and assembly while building a computer system they can take home or give to a needy family at the end of camp.  

This year, up to four separate two-week camps will be offered throughout the summer in Carson City, NV with each camp consisting of up to 20 kids. Daily activities include “learning”, “doing” and “having fun” sessions taking place on Monday thru Friday for 3 hours a day (1:30 to 4:30 pm).
