Summer Coding Camps

While we’re mostly an after-school custom-learning coding shop, we also offer Summer Camps! Our in-person coding camps can be a great way to keep your kids learning computer science through their time away from school. theCoderSchool’s camps target kids’ interests, from video game development to robotics to minecraft to roblox to javascript with html/css and even mobile game development.

How We Teach at Our Camps

Our camps are all low-ratio, with typically six campers to each instructor. Camp instructors are often our regular year-round Code Coaches® who have lots of experience teaching coding skills to kids throughout the year. Each camp has recommendations around age and skill level, but all are open to discussion based on your child’s experience with coding.

How Our Camps Are Run

Each day camp runs for a full week, usually starting mid-morning and finishing early afternoon, although some camps are offered as a half-day. While we’ll do lots of on-computer learning, we’ll also take plenty of breaks and take a walk outside or other indoor activities. At the end of the week, students give demos to show off their hard work from the week and their newfound critical thinking skills.

PYTHON STARTUP (8+)

Does your child dream of making their own video games? Help them fulfill their dream with our 2D Game Development (Python) Camp! Campers will learn more about core coding concepts and the game development process to create video games using the Python programming language. Students will learn from the coaches to create games that we have designed in advance for this camp, and they can add their own personal flair to the game. This is a fun way to introduce your child to computer science or sharpen their Python skills, while also bolstering their math and critical thinking skills!

6/24-6/28 In-Person | Python Camp, $450

Minecraft! (8+)

Coding has never been so much fun!​ In the Minecraft Coding Camp, students can learn more about coding through Minecraft Education Edition! In Minecraft Education Edition, kids aren’t playing Minecraft (except during lunch breaks), they are solving meaningful logic problems using drag-and-drop (Scratch-like) code or Python code. The puzzles just take place in the Minecraft world. Take your student through the coding journey to learn about sequencing, operators, variables, conditionals, functions, loops and more! Join us to create and develop your own unique Minecraft experience!

5/20 - 5/24 In-Person | Minecraft Coding, $450
6/3- 6/7 In-Person | Minecraft Coding , $450
7/8 - 7/12 In-Person | Minecraft Coding, $450

Roblox! (8+)

Game Development (Roblox) Camp is aimed to teach students coding concepts while creating a game in the Roblox Studio game development engine. We have prepared some game ideas for this camp, and the kids will vote on which one they work on during the week! Students can work by themselves or with a team. This is not an introduction to programming, and some coding experience is required: students should have a basic familiarity with typed scripting languages (i.e. Python, Java, Javascript). If you are not sure if your student has enough coding experience, please call/email/text us, we are happy to discuss! Students will only be allowed to play Roblox and other video games during lunch break, otherwise it’s time to create with code!

7/15-7/19 In-Person | ROBLOX, $450

Experience Interactive STEM Learning

We design our coding camps to help kids understand STEM topics through interactive, hands-on experiences. Our engaging approach makes sometimes complex concepts palatable for younger students. Hands-on STEM learning is highly valuable for students, giving them skills they can use for years to come—even if they don’t become computer programmers. Some of the useful skills they’ll pick up include:

Making STEM fun and interesting is our specialty at theCoderSchool, and we’re confident that your child will come away with a newfound appreciation for computer programming through our immersive learning experience.

What is the best coding camp for kids?

We know how different kids are from one another, and our camps help reflect that diversity. You'll find camps that focus on javascript and HTML/CSS for web development, use Scratch for game design, game development, and animations, we even have camps that teach algorithms for basic artificial intelligence and data science. We also employ a project-based learning experience.
