Summer Coding Camp

Learn and practice coding in a fun and casual setting with peers. Students work hands-on with our instructors creating projects with Python, Processing, and Java. Over the week they are free to choose the tools they wish to focus on. Have an idea to extend your project? Great! We'll help you do it.

The summer camp mornings are spent learning about the languages while building project-based lessons. The afternoons are flexible and leave time for students to choose projects and continue at their own pace.

At Start Code, our small instructor to student ratio provides customized learning. Unlike other camps, our instructors have or are pursuing degrees in Computer Science and STEM-focused fields.

Learn more about the topics covered

Learn Python

Python is a great place to start because it has a clear readable code style that students “get” pretty quickly. Python eliminates some of the initial sources of frustration with other traditional languages. We take a playful approach to Python using number games, text adventures, simple ciphers, and the students try changing the code to see what happens. Python’s popularity continues to grow and is used in places like Google, NASA, and Georgia Tech.

Learn Java

After trying a set of lessons in Python, students are then prepared to try object-oriented programming. Java was designed to ‘run anywhere’ and is used for Android smartphone development, for example. We have chosen an development tool that was designed for learning Java that introduces concepts like objects and classes in a fun intuitive way while making simulations and games.

We hold a team competition on Friday with the students coding a simulation in Java. It is one of the highlights of the camp each year and the kids really get into it. Many teams share ideas and work collaboratively.

Learn Processing

Processing is a programming language geared toward creating visual media, or “sketches”, while also being a good starting point into coding concepts. Processing sketches are written using JavaScript or Java and give an interactive experience to “visualize” the code with graphics. Processing is used in classrooms of all ages from computer science programs to visual arts programs.
