Academy of Code Summer Camps for Kids & Teens

June, July, August

7-18 years

From €75 for one week


Looking for a fun AND educational summer camp for your child or teen? At our summer camps, students discover the exciting world of coding through languages including Scratch, Java (Processing), HTML-CSS, Python, app development and much more.

Whether your child is a total beginner or they have some previous coding experience, our structured Pathway to Computer Science curriculum is the perfect way to learn how to code, and caters to everyone from complete beginners to advanced coders.

Summer Camp Format

Our coding camps are exclusively online in 2023, but don’t let the ‘online’ aspect scare you off - our summer camps are a little bit different to what you might be used to! We’re so confident that your child will have a blast, we offer a 100% money-back guarantee, no questions asked. Here’s why:

Camps are run live via Zoom, and are hosted by the same expert team of live tutors who run our term-time program. Students are required to have their webcams on, so it’s not just a room of blank, black boxes - we can all see and hear each other, and interact pretty much how we would during an in-person class! Classes are also kept small, with just 5-7 students per Zoom room, as this allows the maximum amount of tutor/student engagement.

All students share their screens throughout the class, so our tutors can “walk the room” and keep an eye on how everyone is doing - helping out where required. Each group is assigned a tutor who will generally stay with them throughout the term, giving everyone plenty of time to get to know each other - just like we would in an in-person class!

Why Choose our Coding Summer Camps?

  • Small class sizes & focused learning (6:1 student-tutor ratio)
  • Structured 10 grade curriculum (continue coding after the summer if you wish!)
  • Fun & interactive tutors
  • Learn from anywhere - classes seamlessly delivered via Zoom
  • 100% money-back guarantee, no questions asked

Age Groups & Camp Content

Parent & Child | Ages 7-8 Years

This beginners-only, 'pre-coding' grade, is for our youngest coders. Students are introduced to computer skills with a fun curriculum of coding, computer hardware, internet safety and more. Parent supervision is required for this class - but we hope that your involvement will be minimal!

Fresher | 9-11 Years

This age group focuses primarily on working with Scratch and other visual/block-based programming languages. There will also be a soft intro to HTML/CSS and Python during our Fresher Summer Camps.

Junior | 11-13 Years

Generally suitable for students from 5th class up; this class focuses largely on learning to code with ‘Processing’ - a Java based programming language that forms the foundation for more advanced learning and venturing into the world of code, with intro to HTML/CSS and Python.

Senior | 13+

Students sub-divided by age depending on numbers in each class and existing experience; focused largely on Java (Processing), while also working with HTML/CSS, Python and others. These camps will also offer university level challenges for advanced students.
