Event description
What if your child spent their summer learning to make apps instead of playing them? Prepare your kids for the future in a fun & safe space!

About this event

What if your child spent their summer learning to make apps instead of playing them? This four day camp, designed for 9-16-year-old students, introduces the fundamentals of coding. Students will create websites, mobile apps, and video games all while having fun with our energetic team. 

By the end of the week, each student will have built at least one web page, app, and video game using programming languages like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and technologies like iOS, Android and Construct. The camp is kept small to ensure everyone gets focused attention and learns at their pace.

More than just coding - Week of Code boosts creativity, logical thinking skills, and brain power! In addition to programming time inside, campers will interact with our upbeat team for unplugged activities and games. Week of Code is a blend of computer programming, problem-solving, and teamwork! 

Hear what a parent had to say:

"My son had an AWESOME week at coding camp. He was able to apply the knowledge and skills that he learned at camp to design a website for a school project. He was the only one in his whole class who was able to do this, thanks to the camp. The rest of his classmates designing a paper brochure. As a mom, I was extremely proud. Not only did he design a phenomenal website, but he made an A+ on the project too. Thanks AWESOME INC!"

- Danielle W, Jacob's Mom
