Scratch Camp! (ages 7-12) – New to coding?  Veteran Scratcher? Our class ratio of 1 teacher : 6 students ensures that everyone will be supported regardless of their coding experience. We make learning coding fun, by letting your child write their own, unique computer game, based on their own ideas. We’ve found that supporting true creativity through coding gives kids a sense of joy, freedom and power that they can’t really get “In Real Life”. This creates a hunger to learn more! Then, the social aspects really come into play. Kids love sharing their creations, and cheering each other on to learning more. Nothing feels more like victory than the adoration of your peers. Our daily show and tells and teacher led challenge projects help provide inspiration when needed.

Our classes always feature “The Creative Coding Method.” Our goal is to be the very best at teaching computer programming to kids in grades 3-5. “Founder Dad” Eric Fredrickson developed this method to teach and inspire kids in this age group through four core principles.
  • Fun! The most important thing is to make sure the kids are having fun, and fully engaged with their own creative project. We celebrate successes and mistakes. It’s all a part of their coding adventure. If they’re having fun as they create, we literally cannot stop them from learning!
  • Creativity. Every class confronts your child with the question “What do you want to make?” Then we help them do it! Nothing is more exciting than your child’s own ideas. Every session is a non-sequential learning experience driven by their own project.
  • Teaching Kids to Teach Themselves. Our teachers engage with students over video chat, and are trained to see non-verbal signs of frustration. They aren’t there to give answers, but to lead your child through the process of finding answers. By jumping in at the right time with effective questions, your child will discover and create their own solutions for bugs or new features. We are teaching them to teach themselves.
  • Persistence. Coding is hard. Your child will fail a million times before they succeed – but it feels incredible when they face adversity and emerge victorious with a solution they discovered on their own! Our teachers give students guidance during this emotional cycle and help them navigate barriers. After taking our class, your kids will get excited about facing a tough problem because they’ve developed a taste for success. They’ll think, “Wow this is really hard… and it’ll feel GREAT when I succeed!”
