About MAIN CAMPUS CAMPS!Founded by brothers Ed Fleming and Brandon Nieginski, Main Campus offers programs that teach kids about the wonders of STEAM - science, technology, engineering, art and math. Our primary mission is to encourage kids, of all backgrounds, to love science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), and the arts!!!
Creative technology enthusiasts since childhood, Ed and Brandon were members of the first generation of kids to have access to computers, video camera's and video games in their homes. Falling in love with science and technology, the bothers began to explore ways to use technology that was fun and creative. Over the past 30-plus years Ed and Brandon continued to be passionate about science and technology; with careers in the fields that they love, they've never looked back.
As kids, Ed and Brandon would often spend countless hours getting lost in video games like Mario and Zelda, and movies such as Ghost Busters and Star Wars. However, Ed and Brandon weren't just watching, or playing, their entertainment, they were learning how these productions were made. Analyzing the level designs in games, and special effects and production of film, led the brothers into careers in technology and entertainment. As adults, Ed has a career making video games (and teaching university classes), and Brandon makes movies and documentaries.
With a love for technology and teaching, Ed started a technology summer camp in 2003 that ran at Penn State University - Great Valley. Since that first camp took place at Penn State, our camps have hosted thousands of students. However, as the program grew, it became too large for the Great Valley campus to accommodate.
In 2010, Ed and Brandon started to explorer new ideas for how to engage kids with science and technology. The result of these discussions was to form a new, non-profit organization, that not only provided open-enrollment summer camps, but also hosted school-year programs aimed at teaching kids that needed some extra support and encouragement to get through school. The result is Main Campus Camps.
We hope you consider sending your child to one of our programs. If you have any questions please call us to speak to one of the founders, or one of our amazing staff members. We can be reached at: 484-222-0094
