  • Social Benefits of Riding the Bus 01/13/2017
    These days, kids are spending more and more time interacting on digital devices rather than in person. When they want to have a conversation, it is a quick text away rather than a phone call.

Programming

For campers who want to learn programming, especially GAME DESIGN, this is the way to go! We offer a variety of languages, including LOGO, JAVA, Python, and Unity, depending on the camper’s experience level. Campers are not just limited to making computer games. They can create drawing programs, sports games, mazes, puzzles, mock databases — wherever their imagination takes them!

Campers typically begin with LOGO, learning the foundation of programming and how to execute commands such as if statements and loops. As they progress, campers can explore a series of more complex languages, deepening their skills in computer programming. Older more experienced campers have the opportunity to explore advanced programming that focuses on more industry standard languages, preparing them for college and/or a future in the field.

Our teaching ratio is 4:1, and campers work in pairs on one computer, collaborating to enhance learning. Through experience, we know the personal interaction that occurs between kids and computers has positive benefits:  it can improve math and critical thinking skills, reading ability, and attitudes toward learning. Guided exploration on a computer can also hone intellectual skills, teach problem solving, and improve the ability to communicate.
