Coding for Kids (10-15 yrs).

When is the last time you looked at a paper map, or bus/train schedules or a telephone book? Almost everything we do is controlled by exciting technology and this camp explores the many ways that computers and coding impact the world around us!

Join us for a week of engaging content designed to introduce basic coding skills so that campers are up to date with technology and have an understanding of computer programming. Campers receive hands-on training to learn the fundamentals using a programming language called "Visual Basic" through engaging and interactive lessons. Our expert instructors will teach campers how to use Visual Basic, learning the primary constructs of programming (sequence, selection, and repetition) by recreating common programs like quizzes, counters, and choose your own adventure games. These programs will help beginners lay an excellent foundation for programming, and provide those who have some experience, with specific instruction and detailed computer projects to build. No programming experience is necessary, but familiarity with doing common tasks using Windows is expected. Topics will include variables, math operators, if else statements, loops, random numbers, decision –making, repetition and timers. Time during the week is also devoted to outdoor activities and there is daily recreational swim time and hot nutritional lunches included in the schedule so that your camper has a well-rounded day.   At the end of the week, campers will put all their new skills together to create their own unique program and take home the skills needed to create more on their own!!

World Explorers (7-10 yrs.)

Channel your inner Marco Polo and join us on an adventure around the world! We will be making stops at places such as Egypt, China, Africa, Europe, and possibly stand on top of Everest! Campers will explore and experience the language, culture, food, demographics, and much more on different parts of the map. Learn how to read maps, look at an Atlas and create a world of their own.

Get your passport ready, we would love to have you come with us on our trip around the world!
