Ready, set, code!


This computer programming camp immerses campers in Java™, the popular programming software used on billions of devices worldwide! Campers learn about the logic, syntax, and calculations that go into building Java™ programs, in addition to sharpening skills in planning, problem solving, and, of course… computer programming!

During the camp week Java campers get to create at least one mini project and one main project.

So, what are the NEW PROJECTS FOR 2019 at camp?

Mini projects may include A Coin Flipping Simulator, A Magic 8 Ball, Automatic Sentence Generator, a silly name generator, a pig latin translator, a pig dice game.

Main Camp Projects may include a tower defense, a tic tac toe game, a quiz game, superpong, a platformer game, a calculator, or a graphical choose your own adventure game!

By utilizing Eclipse as a Java™ IDE, campers learn how to print text onto the computer screen, use conditional statements and loops, and receive input from the user. These newly acquired skills allow campers to create a text based action adventure game and other projects. Campers can also express their creativity in making an ASCII art based game using the creation of custom methods. As campers progress, they take a step up and explore the world of Graphics in Java™, which provides wonderful added features to camper projects. By utilizing the AWT graphics library, campers code fully functional graphics into their applications and make impactful choices as the programmer and project designer!

Valuable Learning Opportunities:

Endless Opportunities: Development opportunities with Java™ are limitless. Java™ has a very large database with support from professional coders and developers throughout the world. Lots of software being used today involves Java™, partly or entirely, so you will never run out of choices or worry about what to do with your Java™ skills!

Developing a Mind for Programming: A mastery in Java™ requires patience and self-discipline. As you learn how to code in Java™ at camp, you learn to adjust yourself to the mindset of professional programmers and thinkers. At Lavner Camps, we work to teach these skills while still ensuring there are always plenty of opportunities for socialization and fun!

Leading by Example: Java™ incorporates best practices in using object oriented programming. As you code in Java™, you gain skills which are transferable to other programming languages like Python and C++!

Java™ is Universal and Cross-Platform: Java™ is running just about everywhere you can imagine. Many large applications are programmed with Java due to its scalability, stability, and maintainability. Examples of such applications include Minecraft™, Blu-ray technology and Gmail. By learning Java™ at camp, it will give you a greater understanding of other technology around you. Java™ is also cross-platform which means a java program will run on Mac, PC, and Linux as long as Java™ is installed.

Learn how Minecraft is coded in Java: Minecraft, one of the world’s most popular games, is coded in Java. After acquiring some Java skills, campers may have the opportunity to take a look at how a game like Minecraft is programmed. With skills in Java you could code mods for Minecraft or even create a game like Minecraft!

Create The Next ______: By learning Java™, you can create the next great thing in technology! Put yourself in a position to make an impact!

*No prior programming experience is required, but previous background in Scratch or another programming language and a basic understanding of Algebra is encouraged.

Campers will program using pre-installed software on Lavner computers. Campers are shown how to install Eclipse and continue their coding projects at home.

By the end of the session, campers improve their skills in Java™, gain a better understanding of computer languages as a whole, and leave camp with impressive projects!

Learning Java™ gives our campers a leg up in the tech world and a better understanding of how many programs work from the backend.
