How the Time is Structured

Camps are 4.5 hours long, and we give brains and bodies a chance to recharge with two 30 minute outdoor breaks. 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.

Daily Schedule

What Students Will Learn and Do

  • Learn HTML, CSS and Javascript coding languages through a series of guided projects and challenges
  • Learn about free tools for creating and editing website graphics and make your own logo, buttons, icons and more
  • Design and build your own multi-page website with menus, videos, games and activities you coded yourself
  • Learn how websites and servers work, and set up your site with free hosting

All lessons use typing and core languages only. We do not focus on website builders or drag and drop environments.

Sports Add-On (Full Day Camp 9am-5pm)

Note: Available in Chicago only

We are pleased to offer the option to add a half day of sports and games with our partner, We Got Game, to this camp for the July 22 week only.

Sports will primarily take place at Burley Elementary and may include swim time at Hamlin Park (dry activities will be accommodated for kids who don't swim).

The add-on includes lunch hour supervision at Hamlin Park, and an escorted walk between the two camps.

Please note that you will drop off in the morning at one camp and pick up in the afternoon at the other.
