Technology Camp

Alphapointe’s Technology Camp is a week-long day camp experience for middle and high school students with vision impairments.

A High Tech Experience

For the first time, Alphapointe is partnering with and Enterprise KC to present Camp Access, a cybersecurity camp designed specifically for kids who are blind or visually impaired.  This immersive, five-day camp will introduce kids to the world of cybersecurity, robotics and more.  Campers will build a robot, explore coding, and other real-world cyber applications. Technology Camp will be held July 31-August 4th at the headquarters of CH Robinson, located just behind St. Joseph’s Hospital in south KC.  Get directions here.

About Project Access

Project Access aims to support programming options of local and state agencies by offering cyber education opportunities for blind and visually impaired, and neurodivergent students through immersive experiences that are fully compatible with assistive technology such as screen readers or magnification software. This gives neurodivergent students the confidence and knowledge necessary to pursue higher education and technology careers.

Technology Camp Details and Requirements

Due to the advanced nature of the programming at Technology Camp, all campers are required to have completed pre-Algebra and be reading at least at the 8th grade level.  Campers are also required to have a working knowledge of any adaptive technology.  Should you have any questions about these requirements, please contact Jessi Troester.

Interested in volunteering at Technology Camp? Volunteers provide children with vision loss opportunities to use imagination and creativity in a fun and casual learning environment.
