Next Generation Coding Camp

2017 Next Generation Coding Camp in Philadelphia PA, Main Line PA, Lower Gwynedd, PA, Bucks County PA, Princeton NJ, NYC Manhattan, Towson MD, Washington DC & St. Louis MO!


(Ages 6 to 10)

Join us in our commitment to teach the NEXT GENERATION of CODERS!

Welcome to the amazing world of programming with Scratch, where, at this awesome computer camp, campers gain great experience with computer science!  Campers use Scratch, a program created by the MIT Media Lab, to create, program, and share projects.  Campers code from the backend to create character actions and interactions, in addition to establishing entire interactive adventures and stories.

Scratch uses a programming language that is in easy to understand English and created for its own platform. By moving and combining blocks of code, campers develop their own programs to create super cool animation projects.  Campers can also make their animations interactive by including instructions, designing their character’s costumes, adding unique background images and sounds, programming their “sprites” (the objects that perform the actions in the project) to dance, sing, and talk, in addition to other endless possibilities. Campers enjoy customizing projects and using lots of creativity.

Some projects may include a Music Video, an Animated Film, A News Report, a Dance Party, An Asteroids Arcade Game with levels and scoring, A History Quiz Show, A Language Learning Game, A Sports Game, and lots more!

By using Scratch, campers are able to work with a more simplified programming language (compared to other programming languages) to gain the understanding of programming logic and concepts. For campers who want to get into computer programming, this is a great place to start!

Adding to the fun, campers can share projects easily with family and friends by creating their own links!

Each camper will leave camp with at least two projects!

*No prior experience is necessary.

This camp is great for one week or multiple weeks.

For Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced programmers in Scratch.
