Santa Cruz Codes


July 6-9

In-person in Watsonville or virtual



For ages 11-17, all levels. Complete three fun and creative coding projects in three days. Make a simple Java Script game with graphics, a website you believe-in using HTML and JSS, and an interactive text project with Python. Students will be supported building their projects whether they have no experience coding or have taken a coding class before! Take a break mid-week for a beach day with fellow campers, or if you’re not in the local area or want to stay virtual, to complete a hands-on electronic tinkering project that will be mailed to you.


This camp has a virtual option and a fully in-person option. Students may be dropped off in Watsonville with a bag lunch and portable computer if they choose in-person, or may complete the projects virtually from home with instructor on zoom.


Limited to ten campers to allow plenty of individualized support!
