VIRTUAL CAMP: Camp Coding Space Online

The Coding Space, a leading provider of coding education, proudly presents Camp Coding Space Online for ages 8+. These virtual group classes combine project-based coding, exciting STEM-based electives, hands-on and off-screen activities, and more. With Monday-through-Friday full- and half-day options and a flexible refund policy, Camp Coding Space Online will fit your schedule and give your child an unforgettable summer adventure.

Your camper will...

  • Build grit, a growth mindset, and computational thinking through coding.
  • Learn to code in Scratch or JavaScript.
  • Balance screen time with hands-on activities and opportunities to create and explore, even in their own living rooms.
  • Discover and define their personal passions through STEM challenges and more.
  • Make new friends near and far.
  • Be challenged at their individual level.

Every camp session includes:

✓ Project-Based Coding

​All campers learn to code using the Socratic Method, allowing them to develop a newfound problem-solving stamina.​​ Beginners code in Scratch, a block based programming language created by MIT. Advanced campers code in JavaScript or other text-based programming languages. Campers receive personalized attention and curriculum customization through experienced teachers and a 4:1 camper-to-counselor ratio. Learn more about our educational philosophy.

✓ Hands-On Activities

Campers take a break from their screens and discover the opportunities to create and explore that exist all around them, even in their own living rooms. The possibilities off screen are endless and will include: scavenger hunts, botany, cooking, science experiments, board games, TikTok dance parties, short story writing, and more.

✓ Electives

There are so many STEM fields to explore. From game design and physics, to coding musical sequences and sounds effects, to animations and pixel art, campers will be exposed to a wide range of fascinating material designed to help them discover and define their passions.

✓ Daily Challenges

Which house can solve a riddle first? Come up with the best algorithm? Complete a puzzle? The winning house will be awarded points for the day and a chance to win the weekly Coding Space cup!

✓ The Coding Space Cup

Each week campers will team up to create an unforgettable week of exciting challenges. Dividing up into “houses” named after famous computer scientists, campers will learn more about the history of this revolutionary field, while engaging in friendly competitions to encourage collaboration, problem-solving, creativity, and grit.

Houses will collect points throughout the week based on such achievements as gong rings (how The Coding Space celebrates completed projects), riddle and algorithm solutions, physical activities, and more. The week’s winning house will claim the ultimate prize—The Coding Space Cup!
