New! Space Camp Starts July 17
“Camp Outer Space” starts July 17 at the Cherry Park Community Building. Activities include space-travel science concepts, coding, mechatronics (technology combining electronics and mechanical engineering), and model rocketry in our week-long camp. Fly a drone, toss a rocket, and other fun activities as well. New campers will complete beginning activities. Students who attended our June 26 camp will complete Space Camp 2, which includes custom model rocket design and coding Eggtrino controllers built in the first camp. Sign up for the appropriate camp here…
Our Camp Calendar
ExplorTech provides only quality camps and workshops
|8 to 1 STUDENT-INSTRUCTOR RATIO
Despite having one of the lowest tuition rates in the area, we also have the smallest classes. All camps are limited to 8 students, and we accept students of all skill levels. Much of our instruction is tailored for individual students.
|ONLY QUALIFIED & EXPERIENCED TECHNOLOGY INSTRUCTORS
Our staff instructors hold graduate degrees in technology, educational technology, and educational curriculum and instruction, and we love sharing our expertise with young people.
|TWO SPATIOUS, WELL-EQUIPPED CAMPUS LOCATIONS
ExplorTech was invited to partner with Weatherford Parks and Recreation to offer our camps and workshops in the Cherry Park and Harberger Hill community buildings, where we have ample space to spread out let our students explore the world of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM).
|19 INNOVATIVE TECH CAMPS & WORKSHOPS
Our courses include robotics, coding, game design, animation, microcontrollers, virtual reality, mobile app development, and more. See our online catalog for more details…
|UNIQUE OPPORTUNITIES FOR OLDER STUDENTS
We are the only tech camp to offer flexible-schedule workshops and internships for secondary students. Schedule around your summer job while gaining valuable experience as an intern or a member of one of our special topics workshops, like project leadership, photography, video, or internet communications.
|STUDENTS MAY REPEAT ANY CAMP – AND THEY DO!
No two camps are taught the same. We adjust each camp to match the skill level of students, both collectively and individually. And many students have had so much fun in our camps that they just had to stay around for another week or more.

ExplorTech is a 501(c)3 nonprofit providing classroom instruction, teacher training, summer day camps, and other activities. We teach science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) for students ages 8 and up. Our curriculum is provided through local public schools, private or home schools, and our regular Weatherford locations.
Our mission is to provide instruction, computer equipment, technology services, and science equipment to students who would otherwise have no access to the quality STEAM education needed for success in the 21st century. Our focus is fighting rural poverty and technological isolation.
