About this camp

This camp is fast-paced and designed for children with a logical mind. 

After a swift orientation of the core programming constructs, your child will learn object-orientation programming. This is where segments of code are written as blueprints and used repeatedly, meaning any updates will only need to be edited at the blueprint level, it's a methodology that creates efficient code and is used throughout the industry.

Throughout the week your child will learn advanced coding and mathematical concepts, from code that can react to keyboard presses and mouse inputs, through to reactive physics systems and much, much more. 

In addition to coding, your child will also learn about game lifecycles, user interaction and installation – culminating in an awesome series of retro 2D games to take home.
