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 for Underprivileged families/communities

 

Even though our camp fees ($250 per week) is already reasonable, we recognize that low income families may find it difficult to pay. That is why, we offer 50% discount to such families – if your child qualifies for reduced or free meals in school, you can send a copy of that documentation to csk12@utdallas.edu to get the discount code to use for the registration. If you do not have that documentation, you can send any equivalent documentation you find appropriate. If you are uncomfortable to email it, you can fax it to 972-883-2349 (Attention: Maria Boykin) or mail it to

 

Ms. Maria Boykin
UT Dallas MS EC31
800 W. Campbell Road
Richardson TX 75080

 

Please do include the child’s full name and email address. We will email you the discount code upon approval.

 

Another issue is location of the camps – while we do offer residential option with UT Dallas camps for middle & high school students, it does increase the cost & it won’t make sense for younger campers. We are expecting a grant from major corporation in a couple of weeks. It will enable us to visit several low income neighborhoods/cities anywhere in Texas (and even in other states) to run coding camps. Visit bit.ly/utd-sc-req to provide some information and request us to come to your city/community!
