Enrollment is now open for the Lil' Bitties TechnoCamp. We have room for up to twenty kindergartners through 2nd graders to explore the world of computers, cybersecurity and the world around them!

The program aims to reduce summer learning loss for some of the city's most vulnerable children and to help them gain the equivalent of a letter grade in enrichment through computer-based activities and tutoring in reading & math.

And--no summer is complete without a lot of fun, so we get the Lil' Bitties up and moving as well. Each week ends with "Fun Day Friday" which means venturing out to experience STEM, culture, and summer adventures.

ENROLL YOUR CHILD TODAY!! It's the only camp of its kind in DC!!! Questions? Call us at 202-610-2344 or email [email protected].

Summer time is upon us, and YES, Urban Ed's Lil' Bitties TechnoCamp is coming back for the summer of 2019! SAVE THE DATES: Jun 27 - Aug 2, 2019

With a Common Core-aligned curriculum, the Lil' Bitties program aims to reduce summer learning loss for some of the city's most vulnerable children. This camp is NOT a DAYCARE. Rather, the goal is to help each child gain the equivalent of a letter grade in enrichment through computer-based activities as well as tutoring in reading and math.

Space is very limited for this very unique camp so enroll your child today! The camp is $60 per child for the entire 5 weeks!

Our Story

Urban Ed, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our mission is to provide the District of Columbia children, youth and adults with technology-driven education, information and skill development for sustained futures. We carry out our mission by using technology in innovative ways. We help people in need gain marketable workplace skills in the information technology field to include teens still in high school. We also help the children of these families who are not scoring at proficient levels in school gain academic enrichments in key subjects and expose them to various levels of technology.

Our organization continually touches the lives of others through our workforce development that spurs the decline of unemployment, and our educational initiatives that address truancy and low literacy all with the use of technology. After 18 years of service to the community, our vision is to uplift those who are disenfranchised by transforming them into high-performing members of society.
