Camps-On-Campus presents the following fun and unique learning experiences in partnership with the Monmouth County Vocational School District. Programs take place at the individual academy high school locations. Camp participation will not impact application for admission to the vocational school district academy high schools.


Biotech Boot Camp

Touch the exciting field of biotechnology. Use state-of-the-art equipment to perform scientific techniques including: DNA gel electrophoresis, DNA fingerprinting, genetic engineering of bacteria to glow in the dark, and identification of genetically modified organisms. Explore current issues, including stem cell and cloning.
XCHLC 127, $315
Section 1: 7/10 – 7/14 – co-ed, 8 am-1 pm, Grades 7-8
Section 2: 7/ 17- 7/21 – co-ed, 8 am-1 pm, Grades 7-8
Section 3: 7/24 – 7/28 – girls only, 8 am-1 pm, Grades 7-8
Biotechnology High School – Freehold, 5000 Kozloski Rd. Brown bag lunch required. For laboratory safety: no glass containers, no open sandals.


Digital Circuit Technologies

This is where electrical engineering, the field of designing and developing new equipment, begins.  Discover the inner workings of digital circuits by building simple digital electronics. Learn the basics of soldering techniques then move on to more difficult projects. Explore the inner workings of integrated circuit chips to build circuits on computers using logic gates. Completed projects can be brought home after last day of camp.

7/17 – 7/21, 9am-2 pm, Grades 6-8 
High Technology High School – Lincroft, 765 Newman Springs Road, Brookdale campus.  Brown bag lunch optional. Campers may purchase lunch in college cafeteria.


Digital Art With Photoshop

Ever wanted to create your own computer artwork or manipulate digital pictures? Want to add images to a photo or change someone’s appearance? Here is your chance to learn Photoshop skills in a fun summer camp environment. Learn how to use Photoshop tools to create, improve and manipulate images. We will also explore how magazines manipulate images to market products to consumers.
XCHLC 219, $315
7/10 – 7/14, 9am-2 pm, Grades 6-8
High Technology High School – Lincroft, 765 Newman Springs Rd, Brookdale campus.  Brown bag lunch optional. Campers may purchase lunch in college cafeteria.


Historical Technology

Join us and learn about historical technologies and how they changed the world. Then, actually build some of these working technologies. Campers will design and build fully functioning technologies while learning engineering design drawing techniques. Design and build a hot air balloon – then fly it! Build and take home a working catapult, sundial, hypsometer and hovercraft – racing your hovercrafts the last day of class. You are required to bring/wear long pants & shoes while in the technology lab.
XCHLC 254, $315
7/17-7/21, 9am-2 pm, Grades 6-8
High Technology High School – Lincroft, 765 Newman Springs Rd, Brookdale campus.  Brown bag lunch optional. Campers may purchase lunch in college cafeteria.


Magnetic Levitation And Solar Technology

Mag-lev vehicles are intended to provide the high-speed transportation of people and goods to move rapidly and efficiently along a magnetic guide-way. The aerodynamic efficiency of the vehicle shape is very important to the success of transportation. An aerodynamically efficient body shape reduces friction between the air and the vehicle. In this program, campers will design, build, test and race a vehicle across a track. Learn electronic concepts covering direct current obtained through solar cell power and build solar activated devices. Campers are instructed in safety methods using tools. Each camper will successfully design and build a solar powered device to take home.
XCHLC 269, $315
7/24-7/28, 9am-2pm, Grades 6-8
High Technology High School – Lincroft, 765 Newman Springs Rd, Brookdale campus.  Brown bag lunch optional. Campers may purchase lunch in college cafeteria.


Web Site Building Technology

Begin the week building websites using rapid prototyping tools such as Google Sites. After mastering these skills, campers move onto building websites using raw HTML Hypertext Markup Language.  Campers have the option to incorporate technologies such as hyperlinks, cascading style sheets, JavaScript, tables and more in building websites. Continue building websites on your own after the camp concludes.
