Camp Details

Summer camps will be offered in one of two formats: virtual half-days and MCP studio full-days with precautions to ensure safety.  Virtual camps will take place in one of 3 virtual classrooms and will be limited to 6 students.  In person, we are also limiting enrollment to 6, and asking everyone to bring their own snack and lunch.  Computers will be distanced and assigned for the week, and staff will wear masks.  The continuation of camps at JCC and Lakeway Activity Center are determined by those facilities but if they are cancelled, we will move those camps to our studio or virtual classroom.  -Updated May 26, 2020  

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

Costs

Cost is $499 for studio full-day camps and $249 for virtual half-day camps, with the exception of Marvelous Mobile which can include a phone and Winning Wearables which includes the device.  Full payment is needed to reserve your child's seat.  Contact us for paying in installments for a small fee.  Extended hours 8am-5pm for full-day studio camps can be added for the week at $10 per hour.

Enrollment and Attendance

Hours are 9-3pm for full-day camps and 9-11:30am and/or 12:30-3pm for half-day camps.  Extended hours 8:00-5pm can be added during registration.

Location: All camps will take place at the MCP Studio at 3616 Far West Blvd in Austin, TX or in Virtual classrooms.  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!) 

We are waiving cancellation fees if a student withdraws before camp begins . Full refunds will be issued in the form of checks.  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 of 3 students.  In that case, we would move students to a similar camp, or a full refund will be offered.  Virtual and studio camps can be combined to meet minimums.

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.  You can request enrollment if your child does not meet the minimum to be automatically admitted.
