Coding Camp for Kids & Teens
SummerTech’s courses help aspiring developers, modelers, film directors and animators find and follow their passions. A combination of morning classes and afternoon electives make camp a place to experience new things every day.
Coding Camp for Elementary and Middle Schoolers
Our campers dive into the world of tech as early as age 10. Since everyone gets personalized instruction, campers of all ages take part in courses that challenge them at their level. Kids choose the subjects they want to learn, and our counselors guide them along the way. With leadership and mentorship from former campers, anything becomes possible.
Advanced Coding Camp for High Schooler College Prep
High schoolers who want to pursue a degree or career in coding or media get individual mentoring for college prep. Since our counselors took part in SummerTech, they understand the transition between camp and college. They work closely with every camper to get them ready for a bright future.
Since SummerTech takes place on college campuses, it also prepares teens for the higher-ed experience outside of class. Campers learn in on-campus labs and eat at the university cafeteria. Overnight campers also spend the night in the dorms with support from counselors. With staff looking out for them, campers can get accustomed to a college campus at a comfortable pace.
Our Coding Summer Camp Subjects
Each of our courses features personalized, project-based instruction that offers a rewarding challenge. Campers get to explore a variety of technologies in coding and new media through the following subjects.
Since Python has a relatively simple syntax, it makes a great coding language for beginners and master coders. We recommend Python as a coding language for our incoming coding campers.
People use Java in high school, college and the world of work. If you plan on taking the AP Computer Science A exam in the next few years, this class will give you a solid foundation. We suggest Java for experienced coding campers and campers over age 15.
In our web design courses, campers create their own pages with HTML5 and CSS3, the most modern website coding languages. As a camper gets more experienced, they begin to learn Bootstrap and design websites that work across desktop and mobile devices.
Creative campers can choose to learn how to animate using cutting-edge technology. Once they understand how to draw with computer programs, they move toward creating their own interactive movies. As they learn these skills, campers can choose to focus on animation for game design or media.
Kids with a creative side can also take our 3D modeling course to create digital 3D models in Blender. This industry-standard modeling program has an accessible interface and powerful features that suit campers of all experience levels.
Available at our New York camp, the film course gives campers the chance to create their own movies. We request that campers attend this course for at least two weeks.
