Welcome to Spark, our most popular Code Camp that is loved by 80,000 kids and counting! Over 3 days, your 7-12 year old will embrace their creative spark as they design and code their very own computer games.
Your child will design an engaging platformer game (similar to Mario Bros.), and then bring it to life with intuitive, yet
powerful, drag and drop code. Learning the fundamentals of coding gives children the confidence and knowledge to be in control with technology – not just as a passive consumer, but as a creator, problem solver, and digital storyteller.
PS: Your child's game will be downloadable onto all devices, and shareable with family and friends around the world!
PPS: Your child will be able to continue coding at home - with no additional cost!
Our friendly and experienced staff will be waiting to greet you at camp. Look out for our Camp Manager in an orange Code Camp t-shirt, they’re also a qualified teacher and first aid trained. Once you’ve signed in your child, it’s time to say goodbye to let your kids make new friends and then embark on their coding adventure!
Before we get started with the coding, we’re going to spend some time with your kids brainstorming and digital storytelling; choosing magical backgrounds, a hero (think Mario or Luigi), and designing the first level of our game - every child’s game will look completely unique.
Once designed and your child has an idea of their storyline, we’ll start to use block coding to make our environment interactive and bring our world to life, including:
Day two is where your child’s game becomes a blockbuster; with baddies, snowball-throwing-unicorns, spinning platforms and deadly lava!
Day two is all about brainstorming, designing, and then coding the fun elements that will set your game apart from the others.
It’s the final day of Spark and we’re getting ready to unleash our creations into the world for all to play!
Action-packed days of fun during the school holidays!
Our Spark Code Camp is where every 7-12 year old starts their journey. Designing games, jam-packed with awesome features including, zombies, unicorns, invisibility cloaks and so much more. And then the real fun begins, as we use drag and drop code and logic to connect all the elements together and bring their games to life!
Your child will learn:
+ your child will gain so much confidence as they create their very own downloadable app. Read our parent reviews to see what they are saying about us!

Students are welcome to bring their own laptop from home, but if that's not possible you will be able to hire one from Code Camp for a small fee.
Each day to camp we recommend bringing a hat, water bottle, sunscreen and a nut-free packed lunch.
Yes, of course! Each child is given access to our very own coding platform, Code Camp World which is packed with exciting tutorials.
We have some of the best student-teacher ratios to ensure every child has a positive experience. Most of our classes are capped at 28 students with a 1:8 teacher-student ratio.
My son had been to Code Camp several times. From the first course upto the 3D level. The Code Camp instructors are very approachable and helpful. Parents gets updated with everything the kids do at Code Camp and even on the App that the kids have themselves created during the course. My son is looking forward to more level-up coding courses in the future. Thanks Coding Camp for this great school holiday course!
I was very satisfied with the care and attention my child received. My son said the coaches were helpful and highly skilled. They played games and even had a dress up day. He also said that the coaches made all the instructions very clear which made it easy for him to create his project.There were children that attended from all different ages and they all walked away with their own creations so nothing was difficult. They obviously cater for all skill sets.
My daughter loved attending code camp. She told me that the teachers were really nice and that it was fun learning to make a game. She is certainly very proud of the game she made and is very keen to return to future camps. Definitely a successful holiday activity - thank you!
My son and friend attended the 3 day Spark camp. The first day I picked them up I was bombarded with excited chatter all the way home! The next day we pulled up and my son sprinted from the car to the class without a goodbye kiss haha! I would recommend this for any child interested in coding or gaming. We will be back for the other camps.
Four day Spark course. My kid really connected with the teacher and produced a fun game. An engaging activity for girls and boys with a professional team who understood the diverse kids in their care. Emails queries were answered within 48 hrs. Great company.
My daughters shared excitement and showed us every day the progress of their website. One of them kept coding to complete and embellish the website at night from home. I hope you can extend this type of courses to teenagers also in the future with a progressive level of complexity.
