This camp is suitable for campers new to coding and programming. Learn basic coding skills while designing, building and creating your own video game using programs such as Scratch. Some adult support (or older sibling) will be needed to start the daily session for younger campers. Counsellors will then provide the support during the camp activities. Campers will be expected to have their own access to a computer for this program.
All camps will be staffed by Ontario Certified teachers (OCT), teacher candidates in the Faculty of Education program at Ontario Tech University as well as several university students who are returning camp counsellors. All camp sessions will have small numbers to ensure interactivity and active engagement. There will be a low camper to counsellor ratio with staff working closely with individual groups. Most camps will have a 4:1 of 5: 1 ratio especially for the program offered for younger campers.
The majority of camps will require minimal parent support once the camp site has been successfully accessed. Camps for younger children will benefit from some support (or older sibling or adult) at the start of the daily session to ensure that the camper has access to the meeting room. Counsellors will then be the main support during the camp activities! Technical support will be available during the camp sessions.
Additional challenges and resources will be available on the camp website for the eager campers who want to explore more on their own
