Everyday your camper will be exposed to new technologies, try their hand at different design methods, and imagine new ways to interact with the world around them.
We also offer the activities listed here:
Camp-wide games, fabrication, laser engraving, Vinyl Cutter, CNC routing, 3D Printing, virtual reality exploration and design, Computer Assisted Design, photography and photo editing, music-making & editing, coding, rock climbing, sports, storytelling and presentation, t-shirt making, field trips, and so much more!
Kosher lunch is provided by Camp X for all participants. A menu will be shared with families prior to each week of camp. If a camper needs an alternative meal, please be in touch with the camp director 1 week in advance of camp.
Camp X is broken into five week-long sessions. Families can sign up for any number of weeks. It is highly recommended that students attend every day of a given week to get the most out of the experience. We are proud of our camp's structure because we believe it to be a great way to encourage friendships, create incredible memories, and most importantly, for your child to have a blast at camp. In order to do that, we need our campers in attendance for the entire week, whenever possible.
Milken is a vibrant academic home for diverse students from across Los Angeles. What they find here is an environment that emphasizes critical thinking, prioritizes personal development and fosters a sense of cohesive community. We invite you to get to know us better.
