My son loved it!!!

This is my 9 year old sons 2nd code camp and he loves it. Haven’t seen him this excited since discovering chocolate and the PS4!!! Comes home talking about it, wakes up talking about it and wants to be a “video game creator”.

Keeps tweaking his creation. We will be back!

Fantastic! Kids really enjoyed their time

Very satisfied with the course and content.

Girls kept raving about code camp. They made friends. Loved the teachers and all the activities they did. They’ve been spending time on their games too.

They are enthusiastic to be able to continue with coding at home.

Fun and friendly course with terrific support and ongoing education

This was a great way start to coding for my nine year old son. He seemed to cope well with the teaching level and was enthusiastic about continuing the projects. He is already talking doing about the next course. He didn't know any of the other kids in the course and had made close friend by the end of the day!

Best 3 days!

So I was a little skeptical sending my son on a 3 day code camp - he's only 7, really shy and he didn't know anyone else attending the camp. Well he went, and he loved it! He made new friends and really loved learning and working on his game, coming home each night and giving us a deep dive into the days learnings and how his game was progressing. Well worth it, education made fun.

Our 8 year-old had a great time building a game

This was our first experience with Code Camp. The 3-day course was a great balance of fun (it's the school holiday, after all) and education. The kids learned concepts from physics, mathematics and logic and built a game, which their friends and family could play afterwards.

We'll be back!

Code Camp World

Where your child becomes the creator

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!

Action-Packed Days

Check-In

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!

Day One

Design, create & code!

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: 

  • Animation
  • Gravity (physics)
  • Movement (left, right, jumping)

Day Two

Coding a blockbuster game!

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.

  • How does the scoring work?
  • What collectibles are available for our characters?
  • How many lives does each player get?

Day Three

Ready for launch!

It’s the final day of Spark and we’re getting ready to unleash our creations into the world for all to play!

  • Finishing touches into our levels, adding a few new game features, and possibly even a few new characters
  • We’ll add touch controls so your kids can play their games on any mobile device!
  • An awards ceremony, recognising each child’s creative and coding achievements

Code Camp Makes School Holiday Exciting!

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!

Antoniette, Sydney

My son couldn’t wait to get there. It really kept him busy during the holidays and he really enjoyed the coaches.

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.

Great school holiday activity

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!

Georgina, Perth

If only he was this keen to go to school

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.

Paul, Brisbane

Happy kid

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.

Shanamasha, Sydney

Good experience to the real technology world

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.
