Computer Programming Camp

Have you ever wondered what it takes to create the next iPhone app (think Angry Birds) or the next Internet Search Engine (like Google)? These technological sensations are created by computer programmers, and our Summer Camp experience is designed to introduce children ages 8-13 to the concepts of computer programming in a richly FUN and interactive environment.

We will be using the kid friendly programming language, SCRATCH, and our campers will learn the same basic programming concepts that are used across all programming languages.

Throughout the week-long camp, the children will expand on each new concept to design and create their own computer games. Our goal is to spark a life-long passion for technology by demonstrating the joy and fulfillment experienced by creating programming solutions to technological problems.

Come join us during one of our TWO offerings!

Monday-Friday, June 16-20 OR Monday-Friday, July 14-18

Ages 8-10, 9 a.m.-noon

Ages 11-13, 1 p.m.-4 p.m.

Tuition is $150 per session
