This camp is a great way to take a tour of the world of coding in just one week. Students will be exposed to professional languages and tools while making several working projects.

Summer 2020 North Shore Schedule

Jul 13 - Jul 17
12:30pm - 3:30pm

How Time is Structured

Camps are 3 hours long, and we give brains and bodies a chance to recharge with a 20 minute outdoor break. This may include walks around the neighborhood, social 'hang-out' time at a green space, or casual games such as frisbee or basketball at our nearby park

Class Size & Instructors

Camps are capped at 8 students, and will have a 4:1 ratio or better at this age group.

Our instructors are adults who are studying or have completed post-secondary education. We hire talented high school students as teaching assistants and to provide near-peer interactions.

Hardware, Accounts & Materials

Computers and all required tools are provided.

The mobile apps can run on either Android or iOS. We will provide Android devices for use during camp, but kids can also bring in their own smartphone. Personal devices are brought at your own risk.

All the coding tools we use in this class are free and can continue to be used at home after camp.

After care Add-on (3:30-5:00pm)

Price: $15 per day

For families who need a longer day, we will be offering aftercare by the day throughout the summer.

Aftercare will take place outdoors in Lovelace Park, and you may pick up your child at any time during the window.

Students will be supervised by a member of the Power Up team, who may not be your child's daytime instructor.

Aftercare must be booked 24 hours in advance. Parents who are late picking up their child will be subject to a $40 late pick up fee.
