Fee details: Advance registration fee is $125 for half-day one-week camp & $250 for full-day one-week camp. Fee will go up by $25/$50 during the final 2 weeks before each camp. Cancellation fee is $25 until the camp start date. After the camp starts, prorated amount minus $25 fee will be refunded for cancellations. Registrations are not transferable to others, but you can transfer to another camp in another week. Email csk12@utdallas.edu with order # for all cancellation/transfer requests.

 

Age ranges have been provided only because several parents have asked us for recommendation in the past (Level 0 is for K-2 graders, level 1 is for 3-5 graders, level 2 is for middle schoolers and levels 3 & 4 are for high school students). Since every student learns differently, we recommend every one to start at the appropriate level and graduate to next level camps at own pace (you can ignore age range recommendations).  So, please discuss with your child and decide on the most suitable camps – we will NOT stop any one from attending the camps based on age.

 

See utd.edu/k12/directions for driving directions to ECSS, ATC and SPN buildings in UT Dallas campus. Participants need not bring laptops for level 0 and 1 workshops. Laptops are required for all higher levels (Level 2 and above). You can combine two Level 1 (Morning & Afternoon) camps to make it full-day camp – all campers & instructors will hang out in the lunch area during the break. We encourage all Level 1 full-day campers to attend with a friend so that they can hang out together!

 

Schedule for advanced camps are subject to change (upto April 1st or so), based on instructor availability.

Coding Camps in your city?

 

You want us to come to your neighborhood/city to run a coding camp? Sure, work with your family, friends, school, church or community to find a space to run it – all we need is classroom-like space with a projector, screen & PCs/laptops. Email us to csk12@utdallas.edu. We can work together to make it happen. See more details @ utd.edu/k12/custom

 

Teacher Training Camps

 

We will be happy to work with any ISD or school and offer custom-designed hands-on teacher training camps over Summer. We would recommend to cover one topic each day (Scratch, Alice, JavaScript and Java are good topics!). We are flexible about the fee and we will be happy to do it for a reasonable fee your ISD/school can afford. Contact us to get started!
