One of the most important skills of the 21st century is the ability to code. Our whole world is run by software, and if kids want to shape the world of the future, they’ll need to know how to code. While many schools offer computer programming as part of their curriculum, nothing beats a hands-on intensive program designed entirely around coding. That’s where Coder Kids summer camps come in.

At Coder Kids summer camps, kids from preschool age to high school seniors can take classes in some of the most important programming languages and environments including Scratch, Python, Unity, and even Minecraft. Yes, that Minecraft.

Coder Kids summer camps for grades K-2 focus on coding foundations, while camps for grades 3-6 task kids with designing their own computer games. Grades 5-9 learn Python, the world’s most popular language for creating mobile and desktop apps, while camps for older students focus on making 3D games in Unity or working with hardware in addition to coding.

Learning to code at these camps won’t just prepare kids to write software. Learning how to code engages with kids’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills and will task kids with working together in teams to complete projects in fun and practical ways. Most importantly, these camps will help kids build the STEM skills needed for success in the economy of the 21st century, regardless of if they pursue a career in coding or not.

Coder Kids offers summer camps all around the greater Houston area including in Bellaire, Memorial, Kingwood, The Woodlands, Cypress, Katy, Sugarland, Friendswood.

Camps run all summer starting June 3rd. Half day, week-long camps run from $160 to $225, while full day, week-long camps range between $300 and $450, depending on location.
