Looking for academic camp

I am looking for a academic based camp for my 9 year old son. He is out of school in May and I want him to have fun in camp that is educational. I am looking for science, computer and Spanish. We live in Oakland County Michigan. If any one hears anything please let me know.

My child attended the iD Tech Camp at the University of Michigan. They had robotics, computer programming, video editing, computer gaming courses and some classes for younger kids, too. The link is here:

This is one you can let him try out. We used last summer and my kids fell in love with the programs.

It offers 8 weeks of program as weekly exercises in all subject of elem, the science program is esp interesting since it includes science experiements and diagram to resolve the challenge with the exercises.

The most amazing feature is, it's only $30 to pay for a science program for summer. BTW the math programs are free all year round. I signed up after I read a parent review.
