why choose generation code?
fast skills

With our expert instructors as guides, your child can complete full levels of our curriculum in just 1 week. Our immersive program helps your child develop skills rapidly, increasing retention of everything they’ve learned.

hands-on

Whether enjoying on- or off-screen activities, Generation Code campers are constantly building and creating, working on shareable projects like websites, animations, games, and robots. 

collaborative

Kids are great teachers. Our campers learn from each other while developing their social and team-building skills. Campers collaborate on both short-term and long-term projects, as well as engage in paired-programming and mini-activities during each lesson. 

creative

Coding is a form of expression. It’s creative and strategic, and our camps offer students the benefits of choosing their own coding adventure in a structured, effective environment. The more campers explore, the more self-confidence they gain along with the ability to innovate and lead.
