Overview

What will students learn?

This camp aims to introduce the basics of computer science and software engineering in an easy-to-understand way. By first building technical vocabulary and an understanding of foundational programming concepts, campers will move ahead to code several cross-curricular projects. At the end of this camp, your camper will be able to branch out into the wide world of software development with confidence.

What will campers take home? 

Campers will end the week with a better understanding of key programming concepts, vocabulary, and projects to share.

Who is the course appropriate for?

This camp uses Scratch - a block based programming platform best for younger students and beginners.

During the first day of camp, we'll assess students and divide the camp into groups based on age and experience level. 

What’s included: 

  • One week of fun tech exploration 
  • A Codecraft Works camp t-shirt
  • Kona Ice - delicious gluten-free, fat-free, dairy-free, nut-free, and soy-free shaved ice! (if you’d like to learn more about their shaved ice, go here.)
