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 creative adventure!

You can drop off between 9:00 and 9:30 am, and pick-up between 3:30 and 3:45pm. Extended hours are available at certain locations.

Day One

Learn to pilot a drone!

We kick off Drone Camp with the kids embarking on flight training with a focus on drone tech and safety.

They'll learn how to fly their drones freestyle including flipping the drone and carrying objects with the drone to simulate firefighters dropping water from a drone to fight bushfires, or delivering supplies to people in flood affected regions!

We'll also start coding a flight path and watch in wonder as our drones takes off on an adventure.


Day Two

Create a documentary film!

Working in teams, our budding drone pilots will practise navigating through an obstacle course designed by them, then we'll have a drone race to find our fastest pilot!

Then, we delve into filming with drones, and discover real-world applications such as fighting bushfires, rescuing koalas, spotting sharks on the coast and loads more.

We film the koalas in their habitat with drones and create a mini-documentary film, learning cinematic editing, to highlight the plight of this much-loved endangered species!

FAQs

What is the structure of a day at camp?

Each day is divided into 1.5 - 2 hour sessions of fun, creative learning with three breaks for crunch & sip, recess and lunch so the kids can have outside play (weather allowing).

What time is drop off and pick-up time?

Drop-off is from 9:00-9:30 am and pick-up is 3:30-3:45pm. At selected venues we offer extend hours from 8:30 am until 5:00 pm - this availability will be visible at the booking page.

Does my child need to bring a device?

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 fee.

What should I pack in my child's bag each day?

We recommend bringing a hat, water bottle, sunscreen and a nut-free packed crunch and sip, recess, and lunch.

How many kids are in each class?

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.

Do they have to have prior experience?

Spark, DJ Camp, Animation Camp, Minions Animation Camp, Drone Camp and YouTube Creators are suitable for absolute beginners. Ignite requires a basic understanding of drag & drop coding, while kids attending Blast 3D and Web Builders need to be proficient at line coding.

Can I stay with my child?

Our camps are well staffed and we do not have parents stay for the day. If there is a particular reason that you’d like to attend, please get in contact with us to discuss.

Do you cater for special needs?

Whilst we do not run programs specifically designed to cater for students with special needs, our aim is to be as inclusive as possible. If your child attends a mainstream school and is comfortable in a classroom environment, they are welcome to attend. We will ask about their needs at enrolment. We are unable to provide 1:1 support, however if your child has a support worker they may attend with them. Please contact us to discuss your child’s individual needs.

My child is younger than the specified age, can they attend? Can my younger child attend with an older sibling?

If a child is with 12 months of the recommended age it is up to the parent to determine if the child is capable. Our camps are structured for the specified age range and with 1:8 ratios, so one on one support for a younger child will not be available. Unless the child is displaying maturity levels and academic capabilities of an older child, we don’t recommend it.

Do you offer a sibling discount?

When you enrol your child, you will receive a referral code which can be used to save $20 off your sibling booking.
