Every child can be a tech superstar
23,000 students have built their own game and discovered the world of coding with Code Camp and they're hopping into a jam-packed Spring School Holiday program across Adelaide from 2nd October 2017.

Co-founder Benjamin Levi says learning to code is about more than becoming a developer.

"When you're 8 years old, creating your own game is one step short of getting into Hogwarts. Code Camp allows students to be creative with technology, develop logical thinking, problem-solving skills and an understanding of computational thinking" he said.

The three and four day coding camps are being held from 2nd to 13th October 2017, at multiple school-based locations across Adelaide and cater to children from as young as five years old.

Code Camp runs three programs:

  • Little League Code Camp (Years K-1)

  • Code Camp Spark & Ignite (Years 2-7)

  • Code Camp Blast (For students who have mastered Spark & Ignite Camps)

    "During the camps, as kids create and build their own game, they learn about user design and the psychology of user experience, too. These skills can be adapted to any role in any industry. The end result is an app that works on multiple devices, so every kid is walking away with their own self-created game no matter what.

    "It is sort of like a big craft session watching the kids build their own game world. And it is great to watch them interact to help each other, make new friends and share in the process."

    Ben says their focus is on making the experience as fun as possible and giving the kids tangible results as soon as possible to encourage further development of their coding skills.

    While parents are asked to pack a lunch for their coders-in-training, all devices and software are provided by Code Camp.
