Virtual Summer Camp in July

CCSD has extended the campus closure of Walton High School through the summer. In response, our Walton Robotics Camp will be converted to a virtual format and will be moved to July.  We are developing a curriculum and platform that allows us to deliver a robot building and programming experience for our campers.  When we finalize these plans, we will publish them on our website.  If you would like to be notified when registration for the virtual camp is open, please fill out this form and we will contact you directly.
Thank you for your support of the Walton Robotics program.  If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact us at [email protected]
