  • Register one camper for this YouthCode camp

Registration is closed

In this introductory coding camp with a theme of sports, students age nine or above learn basic computer science principles and coding skills while programming computers with Scratch, a block-based visual programming language. This is a great camp for students introduced to coding at school (such as Hour of Code), but want to learn more. In each session of this camp, students are presented computer science principles and complete unplugged activities to learn about algorithms, conditionals, events, loops, randomness, sequencing, variables and more. Students will receive video-based instruction to create eight different sports-themed projects:  

  1. Victory Celebration
  2. Sports Commentary
  3. Net Sports
  4. Fitness Gadget Commercial
  5. All-Star Passing Drill
  6. Batter Up
  7. Extreme Sports
  8. Post-Game Interview
Students will also take part in digital citizenship discussions as well as physical activities and snacks between projects. 


Your $95 registration includes use of computers and accessories, all materials, daily snacks, drinks and camp souvenirs. 


  • Youth ages 9 and above
  • Experience with keyboard and mouse
  • Completed online registration form
