The school holidays are fast approaching!  Check out some fun activities on in Sydney over the next few weeks.

Code Camp

Code Camp offers four camps; Little League, Spark, Ignite and Blast.  Each one is more challenging than the last.

LITTLE LEAGUE – Suitable for beginners.  Ages 5-6.

These camps are designed for little coders who want to make their first small, but important steps to becoming creators of technology, not just consumers.

SPARK – Suitable for beginners and intermediate.  Ages 7-12

The most popular camp which over 10,000 kids have completed so far and where every child aged 7 and above should start their Code Camp journey regardless of their prior coding experience.

IGNITE – Suitable for intermediate and advanced.  Ages 7-12

Ignite is for those who have conquered Code Camp Spark or who already have a lot of coding experience elsewhere.  Build your own top-down adventure game with heaps of mini-games and fun features.

BLAST – Suitable for advanced students only.  Ages 9-13

This advanced camp is designed for those who have completed our Spark and Ignite camps and are ready to take on the world of pure Javascript.
