‘All my friends are proud of me and so are my family’ says 9 year old Sarah Yep, inventor of “Beach Safety”, an app to teach kids how to stay safe in the water.'

We’re excited to announce that one of our Code Campers Sarah Yep, has been featured in the news twice recently, after creating her own app.

Code Camp is committed to empowering kids to become creators and we know many more amazing stories are yet to come!

A fun app for kids- that’ll save lives

The 9 year old’s creation teaches kids about sun safety, staying safe in rip’s and CPR.

While Sarah was learning about beach safety at school, she thought it would be a good idea to help other kids learn about it too. To build the app, Sarah used Code Camp’s “Code Camp World” software. The game features 3 fun mini games and vibrant designs. Play Sarah’s game below

Sarah’s debut in The Daily Mail

Last week, Sarah and her mum were interviewed by the Daily Mail about her app.

Samantha Yep (Sarah’s mum) said, ’to see what kids in primary school can produce is rather amazing’. We think so too! 


Every child is a creator

Other Code Camp kids have also gone on to make their own digital creations. 

10 year old Lamar, developed a website to help her dad stop smoking (read here), and 13 year old Aiden created a handful of apps for the apple app store (watch more here). This just goes to show: any child can be an amazing creator.
