Date: August 3, 2020 – August 7, 2020
Time: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm EST
Min age: 7+
Level: Beginner, Intermediate

This fun, high-impact coding camp introduces students to the world of video game development, interactive storytelling and essential computer science concepts with Scratch. Using a block-based programming system, this camp focuses on the application of core programming processes and problem-solving techniques, without the advanced technical concepts. Campers will leave with the basic knowledge and skills needed to create passion projects and share them with the world!

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.

Who is the course appropriate for?

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

What will campers "take home?"

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

What time do campers meetup online?
The best of Codecraft summer camps, meeting at 10 AM EST, two hours daily for one week. Broken down into bite sized chunks, small groups of campers meet online to work together on fun and focused computer science projects.

How many campers in each online session?

To provide a premium learning experience we keep camps exclusive. With up to just 8 campers, our Instructors can help the campers get to know each other and the material. We aren’t new to this. As researchers backed by the National Science Foundation, Codecraft Works has been developing the best experiences and discovering how to balance our desires for socialization and impactful, synchronous instruction, for years now.

How does online summer camp work?

Codecraft camps online strive to provide a classic summer camp experience, without a highway commute! Campers join small groups and a Codecraft Instructor each day and develop computer science skills, new friends, and explore technology. We take a little time for brain breaks, encourage group collaboration, and foster socialization to complement the learning experience. During the week, they’re guided through building and iterating individual projects, culminating in a demo of their work for friends and family at the end of the camp. Participation develops both technical and soft skills, beneficial for future confidence and communication.
