Description

About The Camp

This exciting summer camp for middle-school girls will focus on exploring digital innovation and information technology through hands on learning that will teach computer programming, website development, coding, and graphic design. Girls will also hear from guest speakers and have the opportunity to learn and play with Squishy Circuits in lab sessions. Lunch breaks and outdoor activities will be held on the beautiful UICDA deck and grounds.

Schedule:

  • Monday-Wednesday, 9am-4pm

  • Thursday 9am-5:15pm: Students complete a day of camp, followed by a camp showcase (approximately 4 p.m.) where parents, family and friends attend to see all the amazing projects the girls worked on during the week.

Camp Details

Please review the particulars below and notify us if you have any questions.

Registration guidelines: Applicants must be girls who will be in grades 6-9 during the 2017-2018 academic year and have not previously attended the Girls Coding Camp. Registration is competitive and and first-come, first-served. Registration will close on June 9, 2017.

Campers are committing to attend the full length of the camp, June 26-29 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. If your camper cannot attend one or more days, we suggest attending next year as the camp experience is reliant on full-time attendance. If for some reason your registered camper won't be able to attend the camp, please notify UICDA as soon as possible so that we may admit a waitlisted camper.

Parents: Plan for yourself or a proxy to sign your camper in or out each day of camp. Campers can be checked in no earlier than 30 minutes before camp and checked out no later than 30 minutes after camp.

For your child to attend, you must sign and return a standard camp liability waiver that will be sent to you via e-mail. This waiver must be received at UICDA no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, June 23, 2017.

Meals and snacks: Girls Coding Camp includes snacks and lunch. At this time, we cannot accommodate dietary restrictions. If your camper has an allergy that prevents them from eating the lunch or snacks provided (meal descriptions will be sent out prior to camp), please pack a lunch and send with your child. Snack options will consist of: String cheese, fruit, or granola bar. If your child cannot consume one of these, please provide a snack for them as well. Please make sure your camper knows what they can or cannot consume as we cannot guarantee non-exposure to allergens.

Special Accomodations: If your camper has special needs and requires a special needs accommodation, please email julianaa@uidaho.edu detailing their needs before the camp so we may discuss.

Behavior Guidelines: University of Idaho Coeur d'Alene's Dig'nIT summer camps have a strict no-tolerance policy with regard to bullying or disruptive behavior and we're proud to say we've never had an incident in our camps. If bullying or behavioral issues occur, the instigator's parent/guardian will be contacted immediately for pick up.


FAQs

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Email or call Juli Anderson at julianaa@uidaho.edu, 208-667-2588.


My camper has attended Girls Coding Camp before-- can she attend again?

In order to create opportunities for more girls to experience Girls Coding Camp, we are limiting the camp to first-time campers only. There are several other activities your camper might be interested in, however, including JAVA Coding Camp, Cosmetic Chemistry Camp, AFA CyberCamp, and the New Apple Camp.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

You do not have to bring a printed confirmation with you. Save a tree!


Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

No. If your camper is suddenly not able to attend, notify us as soon as possible so we may contact a waitlisted registrant.
