Let your student’s creativity shine by giving them the opportunity to build interactive games, animations and illustrations at Code Naturally’s Code Camp! We provide computers, snacks, fun offline activities and an unparalleled introduction to programming from trained educators.
Students learn how classic games work and create their own version of some old favorites.
New games, goals, and challenges are presented to students each day to keep them engaged and excited.
We recommend students pack lunch but our team provides healthy snacks and water during code breaks for our hungry learners.
Students get multiple opportunities to work with friends and learn skills that allow them to work together efficiently and achieve mutual goals.
Students can keep adding to their projects or just play the games they made for fun using the Code Naturally app.
One of the most rewarding parts of learning to code with us are all of the “secondary” benefits. Because we allow students the freedom to create something that is truly their own, you’ll notice changes that help make them successful in anything they choose to do. Below are the ones parents mention to us the most!
Our classes encourage working with a diverse group of students from all backgrounds. They learn to add to their creations by working with others.
Students decide what they want to create, we help them learn what’s necessary to pursue their own ideas. This makes both learning and teaching more fun as everyone is driven to pursue goals that they’ve set out for themselves.
Math skills go hand-in-hand with our approach to programming. Students gain a curiosity and respect for the math they learn in school after applying what they’ve learned to create games and animations they love.
Any great programmer can tell you that planning and project management are just as important as actually writing code. We teach our students a process for turning their ideas into concrete plans before they ever open a computer.
The ability to solve complex problems is always in demand. No matter what your child does, they’ll be prepared.
We emphasize that you have to make mistakes and fail to learn and grow. Students learn to celebrate their mistakes and recognize them as learning opportunities. This mindset is invaluable as students take on increasingly difficult goals.
Summer Camp is held at our flagship location, conveniently located in Downtown Santa Cruz! Student’s enjoy access to Chromebooks, high speed internet, and our unique software – designed and tested right here in Santa Cruz.
