Camps

We offer technology camps at our studio and at select locations, from coding to robotics and AI. 

Register here to join us during school breaks!

Camp Details

First things first - THANK YOU for your interest and the opportunity to work with your child!   We hope your student has a wonderful spring and summer and are happy to be a part of it.  Please reach out with questions 512-593-2729 or hello@mycodingplace.com.

Costs

Camp fee at our studio includes registration fee, equipment for use during the week, morning and afternoon snacks (half-day camps are morning only), Friday pizza party, and t-shirt. 

Cost is $499 for full-day camps with the exception of Winning Wearables which includes the device.  Full payment is needed to reserve your child's seat.  Half day camp prices depend on their location. Contact us for paying in installments for a small fee.  Extended hours 8am-5pm for full-day or 8am-12:30pm for half-day can be added for the week at $10 per hour.

A 10% discount is applied to a sibling who joins the same camp.  A 20% discount on a second camp is also applied with promo code LOVE2CODE.  Only one promotion accepted per camp.

Enrollment and Attendance

Hours are 9-3pm for full-day camps and 9-11:30pm for half-day camps at the My Coding Place studio. If a half-day camp is at another location, please check their website for the correct times.  Extended hours 8:00-5pm can be added during registration.

The camps at Jewish Community Center and Lakeway Activity Center should be registered for on their websites. (Click on their names to go to their websites!) Stay tuned for updates on camps at Eanes ISD.

Cancellations or changes greater than 20 days prior to camp start will incur a $20 fee.  Cancellations or changes less than 20 calendar days prior to camp start will incur a $40 fee. Cancellations or changes on or after the first day of camp are not eligible for a refund but credit can be applied to future programs.

We may cancel camps that do not meet the minimum enrollment requirement.  In that case, we would move students to a similar camp, or a full refund will be offered.

Age recommendations are established due to typing skills and prior exposure to relevant topics that will make the experience positive.  All ages above the minimum are welcome, and students will be grouped accordingly.

Winning Wearables

Join us for a 5 day camp as we create fun projects such as watches and step counters.  Learn about the Internet of Things using a small device called a Micro:bit.  Designed specifically for kids and beginners, the micro:bit is a small, code-able device that is a non-intimidating introduction to programming and making.

This camp will cost $40 more than other camps because the students will take home their devices.
