Camps

Build a PC this summer in collaboration with MetLife

MetLife has partnered with Kramden Institute to offer an exciting summer STEM camp for our community.

What is Build a PC Camp?
These mini-camps are Kramden's unique, hands-on computer technology experience. Campers assemble custom gaming PCs from individual parts, test their creations, try upgrades, and then safely disassemble them.
