In Silver Knights Coding Camp (ages 7-12), children learn to create stories, games, and animations using a visual programming language called Scratch. It’s as easy to use as snapping together building blocks! With Scratch, children learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically. Scratch is designed and maintained by the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab. Our curriculum teaches new coders the basics while challenging more experienced coders to create increasingly complex programs. Silver Knights provides a laptop for every child. At the end of the week, each child takes home a T-shirt and a USB with all their programs on it!
All refunds are subject to a $50 administrative charge per participant per camp session. Payment is not based on attendance; it is the responsibility of the guardian to cancel if the camper won't attend. Deadline to make any changes to camp registrations is 5pm the Monday prior to the camp start. No refunds will be issued for cancellations after that deadline.
