Learn HTML and CSS in a Summer Web Design Camp Course
Throughout their summer web camp, each camper has a personalized learning experience. Our counselors, former web campers ready to pass on their knowledge, guide every camper through the coding journey. Students receive projects that provide a rewarding challenge at their skill level. Throughout their web camp program, your camper will learn coding languages such as the following.
Recommended Weeks: 2+
Web Design and Development for Kids & Teens
Our web course teaches young creators the foundations of web design and layout. Every web camper designs their own website with rich content like text, images and videos. As they learn how to code for the web, they find more ways to customize their site.
Our HTML camp for kids and teens teaches them how to use the building blocks of the internet. HTML5, the newest version of HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language), gives a website its structure. It creates the main content of the web page in an unstyled format. With HTML, you can:
- Put text and images into a web page
- Make links to other pages
- Design forms and tables
- Insert documents and other applications directly into a page
Once a camper understands how to code with HTML, they can use CSS (Cascading Styles Sheets) to change their website’s presentation. While HTML creates the page content, CSS affects the way that a website looks. CSS lets campers create a single file that changes the appearance of every page on their website. It gives them control over the appearance of:
- Page layout
- Adaptive displays
Advanced Web Technologies — Bootstrap
Campers who master HTML and CSS can move on to Bootstrap, a modern web framework. Bootstrap gives the user the power to create responsive website designs and mobile-first pages. As a component library, Bootstrap provides clusters of code with built-in responsiveness for mobile websites. In other words, it makes it easy to create a website that adapts to computers, tablets and phones. Thousands of websites use Bootstrap, making it a useful technology for any aspiring web developer to learn.
Collaboration Through Git
All web campers and counselors use Git to share their work and save new versions of their websites. It lets the developer experiment with changes to their website with the option to go back to previous development stages. With Git, campers and counselors can seamlessly work together to create web pages.
Choose From Front-End or Back-End Development Courses
If your camper wants to get into web development, they can choose from two types of courses:
- Front-end: Front-end web development involves the parts of a website that the visitor can see. It uses languages like HTML and CSS to create a site’s look and feel.
- Back-end: Back-end programming lets a website communicate with its database and server. We recommend that campers who want to learn back-end programming try the Python and Java courses.
