Creative Coding in Scratch Camp

Your child can easily learn to program their own animations, games, and interactive stories with Scratch. This free software allows kids to quickly create and share projects by dragging, dropping, and combining pieces of code. If you have a child interested in learning to program Scratch is a great first platform. Campers will create and publish several projects during this hands-on coding camp, with support from our expert counselors.   

The 5 day camp includes 10 hours of online instruction and activities using the Scratch coding interface and Zoom video chat, led by expert counselors. Camp sessions run for 2 hours each day. As a camper, your child can also connect with a tech-passionate community of kids on our moderated, year-round Kid Club Minecraft server, which comes free with camp registration. For ages 8-9 and 10-13.

*For the camp on the week of July 3rd, there will be no session will be held on Tuesday, July 4th. We will have an additional session on Saturday, July 8th instead.
