Computer and Data Science Summer Camp

Our Coding Camp is a week-long intensive program for rising high school juniors and seniors designed to help them decide if they’re interested in computer programming and data science careers.

During the camp, students will learn and use Python to solve programming and data science problems as part of a team. We’ve forged an authentic experience that features interaction with computer and data science alumni, and an introduction to relevant software and content.

In the summer of 2024, the camp will take place July 7–12. During the week, students live on campus in a residence hall with Resident Assistants who are current LVC students. Students eat their meals in the Allan W. Mund College Center.

Lebanon Valley College values inclusion and diversity. We encourage underrepresented students to apply; financial aid may be available.

All camp applicants will automatically be considered for a scholarship.

Please contact Stephanie Blanda, assistant professor of mathematical sciences, at regarding any camp questions.


We accept applications until all spaces are filled. Because we review them as they arrive, please apply as soon as possible because there are a limited number of spaces available.

You’ll be notified by email, and that email will also include payment instructions and a request for information regarding allergies, medication, or other particular needs of the student.

Check-in for each camp is between 2–3 p.m. Sunday, and check-out is at noon on Friday.

You should bring clothes, towels, sheets, a pillow, and toiletries. You’ll have computer access for all camp activities, but you’re welcome to bring your own laptop. Meals will be provided, and you can bring snacks to keep in your residence hall room. Single beds in residence halls are usually ‘extra-long,’ but ordinary sheets can typically be stretched to fit.

The camp fee is $950, and it covers all camp-related expenses, including room, board, and access to campus facilities.

The easiest way to pay is online by electronic check at You can also send a check by mail. Pay it to the order of Lebanon Valley College, put “Coding Camp” in the memo, and send it to Stephanie Blanda, Computer Science Summer Program, Lebanon Valley College, 101 N.

Students will live in a residence hall with Resident Assistants, who are current LVC students chosen specifically for that task. The residence halls are always locked, and LVC public safety officers are always on duty. The camp director can be contacted at any time by the Resident Assistants.

If a student gets sick or injured, parents/guardians will be contacted. In case of an emergency, the student will be transported to the nearest hospital.

Yes, we welcome applications from international students.

We’ll pick you up in Harrisburg at the International Airport (MDT) or at the Amtrak Station at about 1 p.m. on Sunday and drop you off by 1:30 p.m. on Friday.
