Ages: 7-12 Days: 3-4
Have fun, be creative and learn the skills of the future at Australia’s most exciting holiday camp! Spark is our most popular camp that more than 20,000 kids have loved. Every child aged 7 and above should start their Code Camp journey here for unrivaled fun, engagement and digital creativity.
Kids walk away with their very own game playable via our Code Camp App, available on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
We use our new proprietary software 'Code Camp World' to teach Drag & Drop coding which allows us to focus on the logic without getting bogged down with complicated syntax.
Code Camp doesn't end on the last day of camp! You can access all the same tools used at our camps at home and carry on coding with our new video tutorials.

Drop your kids off at Code Camp from 8:30am, just look for the camp managers in the orange shirts waiting at the camp!
This is where your kids will meet their teachers and be given an awesome Code Camp hat & t-shirt to wear. We start with some fun games to get kids in the mood and then it's into designing their first level.
10:45am - 11:15am
Some time for the kids to be in the playground, play with their new friends and have a bite to eat.
Creating actors, designing more levels, learning the code and logic to make their characters move on the screen. Every student builds their very own unique app - the real fun and challenges begin!
We're big fans of outdoor fun too! Depending on the venue we'll have some handball and soccer games, or make use of other school equipment (skipping ropes, balls etc.).
Back to the action. In-game physics, logic, creativity and more. Over the next couple of days we'll teach your kids the code to add baddies, more levels, points, lives and so much more. There really are infinite possibilities!
3:30pm - 4:00pm
The hardest part of the afternoon session is telling the kids they need to stop coding and go home!
That all depends on the camp location. Some of our partnering venues are able to provide our students with the use of their computers/ iPads for the duration of camp. For those who cannot, you’ll have the option during the enrolment steps to provide your own device or hire one of ours. Either way, you’ll be able to access your child’s Code Camp creation from home after camp.
Class sizes vary depending upon enrolments at each school, but regardless of the class size we maintain incredibly strong teacher to student ratios so all children get the attention and support they need. There are usually 15 to 25 children per class with a lead teacher and 1 or 2 teaching assistants depending on class size.
Our most advanced camps are aimed for children up to age 13. Unfortunately we don’t currently cater for children aged 14 and above but if you have any questions regarding their passion for coding, send us a message and we’ll be more than happy to point you in the right direction.
