Summer Code Camps From Code Naturally

Summer Code Camps From Code Naturally

Ages 8+, offered at the Santa Cruz Code Center and Cabrillo College

This Summer, let your student’s creativity shine by giving them the opportunity to build interactive games, animations and illustrations at one of Code Naturally’s Code Camps! We provide computers, snacks, fun offline activities and an unparalleled introduction to programming from trained educators.

It's fun, I get to code with my friends, and create my own creations!

Camp Highlights:

Game Development

Students learn how classic games work and create their own version of some old favorites.

Real Programming

Students program in JavaScript and create games on par with students using the same language in their first year at college.

New Daily Goals

New games, goals, and challenges are presented to students each day to keep them engaged and excited.

Snacks

We recommend students pack lunch but our team provides healthy snacks and water during code breaks for our hungry learners.

Collaboration

Students get multiple opportunities to work with friends and learn skills that allow them to work together efficiently and achieve mutual goals.

Code at Home

Students can keep adding to their projects or just play the games they made for fun using the Code Naturally app.

The Code Naturally team is making coding fun so my daughter has an affinity and interest in applied science.
