Coding Camps & Programs

Coding camps for kids offer instruction in Python, Scratch, JavaScript, C++, and more. Courses are structured, and typically run a week in length, with sessions available at the world's top universities.

With low student to instructor ratios, classes blend personalized learning and time for kids to socialize with new friends.

Summer 2024 registration opens in November. Keep the learning going with our Online Private Lessons, available now.

A coding camp combines summer camp fun with courses in Java, C++, Python, and other languages, giving kids and teens the opportunity to create games, apps, robots, and more. Such programs provide students hands-on experience with AI, modding, cybersecurity, and other relevant, in-demand topics.

Why attend a coding class or camp (or bootcamp)?

Smartphone apps, robots, video games, small business—the world runs on code. Software jobs are predicted to grow 34% in the next few years, making coding and app development the world’s most in-demand skills.

While both coding bootcamps and summer camps can be effective ways to learn, they have different approaches. Camps can be a great way to get started with coding and to build a foundation of skills that can be developed further. Learn more through our coding resources below:
