San Francisco - Summer Camp

Summer is a great time for students to relax and recharge, but it’s an even better time to learn something new and exciting. Register for our summer camp hosted at the University of San Francisco and give your child the opportunity to learn industry-level coding skills through a fun and challenging project-based approach.

Camp Details

Our unique approach teaches coding through the creation of self-designed games and websites. Our courses build upon one another; you can continue our program by signing up for the next level or try the opposite track! See our FAQ's Page for more details.

Our courses use a web-based format. Throughout the course, students have access to instructional videos, which are enhanced by in-person teaching, classtime to solve problems, and after-class access to instructors.

To encourage students to share ideas and learn from others’ insights, our current class size is limited to 15 students per class.

Our courses are especially designed for students between 13-18 years old. However, we are happy to accept motivated, younger students who think they have what it takes!

Students aren’t required to have any prior programming knowledge. All you need is curiosity and a desire to learn a new skill!

Students are required to bring a laptop with wireless internet capabilities and headphones. A mouse and mouse pad is optional, but recommended.

We help students find their passion:

It’s important to find a program your child is excited about learning. That’s why our full-day summer camp offers courses in both web and game development so students can decide what they’re most excited to learn.

Video Game Development: Students will learn to use Unity, the world’s leading game creation platform used by professionals today (popular games like Pokemon Go, Temple Run and Assassins Creed were all developed with Unity). Students will learn to program in C#, a high-level programming language that allows developers to quickly master the creation process.

Web Development: This course teaches the basics of developing web applications by learning HTML and CSS, two of the core technologies for building websites. Students will begin the week by creating an outline for their website and deciding which features they want to include. They can choose between an informational website or a portfolio based design to display future website projects.
