Materials for Computing Summer Camps
Georgia Tech has run computing summer camps for high school students since 2004, for middle school students since 2006, and for elementary school students (rising 4th and 5th graders) since 2009. Thanks to a National Science Foundation Broadening Participation in Computing Grant we also gave "seed money" to other colleges and universities in Georgia to start computing summer camps from 2007 to 2010. We helped 11 colleges and universities in Georgia start or expand their computing summer camps. As part of ECEP we also provided training and "seed" funding to six institutions to help them start or expand computing summer camps during the summer of 2014.
Here is some of the information you will need to start your own computing summer camps.
There are lots of materials from our SIGCSE 2013 How to Run A Summer Camp at https://www.dropbox.com/s/pv4mridxwzbdkyx/SIGCSE-SummerCamp-Materials-2012.zip
