“Great code camp! My son had a wonderful time and the teachers were helpful, nice and understanding!. Camp took place during a very hot week and they made sure the children were hydrated. My son was delighted every day to show us his progress and the game he coded.
Very nice team and i wish they were running during term time as well”
Thank you for taking the time to review Code Camp. We're very pleased your son had a great time, despite it being the hottest day on record!
We'd love to chat with your school about running in the term time. If you'd like to refer a school you can do so here: www.codecamp.co.uk/refer (and get a free term of afterschool classes if it goes ahead!)
“My daughter has attended Spark twice and is now enrolled on 2D game makers. She is 8 years old. Each time she has been apprehensive as the venue has been a new school and the last time she knew no one else. But she absolutely loved it every time and became very skilled in building and identifying and curing bugs and faults in her game. It also means she looks forward to and gets much more out of her ICT and other classes at school. All in all a fantastic initiative and we are hoping she will start teaching her parents to code properly now...”
Thanks for the lovely review. It's great to hear your daughter has enjoyed her Code Camp experiences and we look forward to seeing her this Summer for 2D Game Makers!
“We sent our 10 year old to Code Camp as it was different to other camps around that were more sports based. He did the 3 day session and absolutely loved it, he has had exposure to coding but not had the time to explore it further so this was the perfect opportunity. Great merchandise too as a good memento of his time there. I will be sending his siblings there too for future sessions.”
Thanks for the great review. We're thrilled your son had a great time.
Looking forward to seeing you at an upcoming Code Camp!
“Sam was really excited to come to camp and he enjoyed every day. He loved being able to make up his own game and still loves playing it even now. Excellent support, personal, great friends and lots of fun.”
We're glad Sam had an awesome time. Thanks for the review :)
“My son was extremely excited about the stage 1 course, and couldn't wait to go back each morning. I would in future recommend to share a curriculum with parents, to understand what was learned and what tools used--it isn't easy to interrogate an 8yo, and outside of outcomes I don't really know the details of what was taught.”
We're very pleased to hear your son had a great time at Code Camp!
Thank you for the feedback about sharing the curriculum with parents.
We know that getting kids to relay what they've learnt throughout the day is no easy task! From next season (Summer school holidays) we will be sending parents a daily email detailing what their child has learnt and some talking points for when they get home.
If you'd like a breakdown of the curriculum please shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can send you something.
Thanks again for sharing your Code Camp experience!
“Code Camp was an excellent experience and lots of fun. It was amazing how we got to code our very own games, which was an opportunity that I had to take. The staff were kind and supportive and always willing to help.
Louis David-Hooper, age 11.”
Thanks for dropping in to write us a review. We're so glad you enjoyed your time at Code Camp!!
Don't forget you can keep coding at home using your Code Camp World log in details and if you need any inspiration we have plenty of video tutorials.
Hope to see you at our 2D Game Makers camp in the future.
“My daughter came back on each of the 3 days stating that she had had the best time ever; she was so delighted by the work she had done and that she had made her very own App. Of course she then showed me how to play on it and helped me through the trickier moves. She is 7!!!”
Thanks for taking the time to review Code Camp.
We're so pleased your daughter had a great time and was excited to show off her creation.
Here at Code Camp HQ we are still constantly blown away by what a 7-year-old can achieve!
“My son Elliott had the best time at Code Camp. He has ASD and sometimes finds it hard to settle in to new situations; however at Code Camp he immediately felt at home. From his amazingly warm and enthusiastic welcome from the team to every day he explained as ‘flying by’, he honestly told me he enjoyed every single second and learned a lot. Code Camp was extremely well organised and inclusive, my son thoroughly enjoyed himself and already has stressed to me it’s very important he returns in the summer! Thanks a million Team!”
WOW! What a wonderful review from you and your son! We're delighted he had a great experience and very keen to see him again in the Summer.
“My son had a wonderful 3 days at Code Camp. Like many kids of his age, he has a keen interest in games so to have the opportunity to build his own and learn how, was an incredible experience for him. I popped in to the room a few times to see how he was getting on and what stood out was how passionate the teachers were and this made the environment relaxed, fun but also made learning more interesting for all of the children. He has been so proud of his hard work and has taken great delight in showcasing his achievements to friends and family.
It was also a great opportunity for my son to mix with a diverse mix of children and like many others over the three days, he made lots of new friends too.
I highly recommend Code Camp and will certainly look to sign him up again when the chance arises.
We're so pleased to hear your son had a great experience at camp! I'm glad you got to see our amazing teachers in action, we think they are pretty awesome as well :)
Thanks for taking the time to review Code Camp, it really means a lot to us! We hope to see your son taking on the next level at Code Camp in the future.
“My daughter went to Code Camp knowing not very much at all about coding, or had any clue about how games are constructed. She took to it as if she had been coding all her life! The teaching by the young team was amazing, she learned a new skill, made some new pals, had a lot of fun and gained a huge amount of confidence. It's great to give kids this kind of exposure to a new skill outside of school, where it feels less like learning and more like holiday club - can't recommend the course enough.”
Thank you so much for the lovely review. Feedback like this makes us so excited to keep doing what we do! We hope to see you and your daughter next school holidays for even more coding :)
“I received some feedback from my daughter and she mentioned possibly having a younger and older group setup for future Code Camps. Apart from that she enjoyed the Camp.”
Thanks for getting in touch! We're very glad your daughter enjoyed Code Camp.
We do split our classes by age when enrolments number allow for it or if we have access to multiple rooms in a venue, but unfortunately, this is not always the case. We tackle this issue by adding extra Teachers Assistants to ensure the older kids are getting challenges and the younger ones are getting enough help. As the program expands, we hope for this to occur less often.
“I have to say that when I told my 12 year old daughter she was going to Code Camp she was not best pleased and felt it was extra work on her school holiday. After Day 1 her opinion had changed and I asked her to rank her experience out of 10 (6 she said). On Day 2 it had risen to 9.5 and by Day 3 it was 10/10.
At the end of Day 3 as we were about to leave she was in tears at the thought that she was finishing and that she wouldn't see her fellow Code Campers again (one particular girl was like a sister to her and the staff noticed it too). She was very excited about the game she created and has shared it with friends and family. I would definitely recommend Code Camp to others and my daughter will be interested in attending another event in the future.”
Thank you so much for the kind words! We're pretty chuffed that your daughter has rated us 10/10, after all, they are our most important customers :)
We can't wait to see you and your daughter next time.
“My son absolutely loved his first Code Camp! He was so eager to show us what he had learnt each day! Well organised, loved the T-shirt/Cap and the Medal of acknowledgment at the end of the 3 days! We've already booked for the next one!”
Thanks for the review! We're glad your son was keen to share his achievements with you, and hope he's still rocking his Code Camp merch!
“My two children (boy Cormac age 9, girl Isobel 11) attended the Rydes Hill School camp in the Christmas holidays 2018 (3 days). Absolutely loved it and I have recommended you to the Head of IT and Head master at my son's school (Aldro). I really hope that you hear from them as I haven't heard further as quite a few parents there expressed an interest....many thanks and please let me know if you are holding any other camps in the Guildford area (as Weybridge and Cobham are too far for me to get to and work really!) Thanks.”
“My daughter (age 9) attended in Jan 2018 and absolutely loved it, it's now her new favourite holiday camp! She didn't know any other children there, but after the kids days she had made some new friends and very keen to go back to the next camp!”
Wow! We're very excited to be your daughters new favourite holiday camp (blushing)!
Thanks for leaving us a review, see you next school holidays :)
