Spring Break Coding Camps

Spring Break schedule conflict continues this year as well: Most ISDs/schools in Dallas area observe March 7-11 as Spring Break, but UT Dallas has kept its schedule in sync with UT Austin & our Spring Break schedule is March 14-18! Not many classrooms or instructors are available during March 7-11. However, I managed to find a few rooms in SPN building.

All are week-long camps, morning session will run 9am-12noon & afternoon session will run 1-4pm. Students can arrive as early as 8:30am and leave as late as 5pm. Early drop-off before 8:30am and late pick-up after 5pm can be done with advance notification to [email protected]& will involve additional fee of $5 per 30 minutes.

Even with our reasonable fees, low income families may find it difficult to pay – we strongly believe that attending a camp should NOT be a serious financial decision. So, we offer 50% discount for children that qualify for reduced rate meals in schools. Forward the documentation to [email protected] to get the discount code to use during registration. We welcome school teachers to join us at a very special rate! Email us a copy of any official document/badge that shows your current employment & we will send you a discount code to use.

All participants should bring a laptop to each camp, unless some other information is clearly specified. Limited # of loaners are available first-come first-serve basis for UT Dallas location only. No loaner laptops are available for offsite locations. Similarly, lunch and snacks are provided ONLY at UT Dallas location – campers should bring their own lunch and snacks for all offsite locations.

We do understand that unexpected things happen and you may need to cancel the reservation at times – we have a very lenient policy: $10 cancellation fee will apply for each transaction irrespective of the total amount. Pro-rated fee will apply once the camp has started. We would like to offer all the camps at the “requested” locations. However, if a camp does not make the minimum registration numbers (typically 5 or so) or the facilities run out of capacity, we may not be able to run all the camps in requested locations – you will be offered to switch to another camp/location or get full refund. So, register soon and share the information with your friends/contacts/PTA and ask them to register as well.

We have specified the grade-level recommendations below for each camp, however we observe open-door policy & we do not deny admission to our camps based on age or grade level. We expect the families to decide the best camp for each child – we will allow the students to switch camps on the first day if possible.
