100+ Coding Camps in 10 weeks of Summer 2020!

This page is specifically for coding camps @ UT Dallas campus. If you are looking for Cyber Defense camps, visit utdallas.edu/k12/cyber. If you are looking for coding camps @ offsite locations, please visit utdallas.edu/k12/offsite. You can conduct custom camps for you & your friends as well – details @ utdallas.edu/k12/custom. You can also look into our residential option (utdallas.edu/k12/residential) if you live outside Dallas area or you would like your child to experience the college environment by staying in our new residence halls. If you want to get the big picture about introducing your kids to coding, please visit utdallas.edu/k12.

Registration site: TBD (Registration system is changing – we hope to OPEN for registration by February 1).

Fee details: Camp fee is $300 for one-week camp (there are no other fees). Registration fee beyond this point will be $350. Registrations will be shut down one day before each week’s camps. Last minute registration fee will be even higher and we will accept only if there is space & logistically possible to accommodate – email [email protected] for pre-approval & payment mechanism. Manual processing fee for cancellations or discount adjustments is $25. Prorated amount will be refunded for cancellations after the camp start date.

(Discount codes for immediate families of current UTD faculty/staff/students: UTDFAMILY – UTD email address should be used for registration, immediate families of UTD alumni: UTDALUMNI – need to provide degree and graduation details during registration, low income families that get reduced rate meals at schools need to send the proof after registration to [email protected] to get discount code to use, School teachers can send the copy of school ID badge to [email protected] to get discount code for them to attend the camps – it is NOT for their families. Also, we do not offer any multi-camp or sibling discounts.)

See utdallas.edu/k12/directions for driving directions to ECSS building in UT Dallas campus. We provide the PCs/laptops for level 1 camps – camper should be rising 4th grader to attend our camps – younger ones cannot be accommodated. For level 2 or higher level camps, Windows laptop or MacBook is required, unless explicit instructions are given in the camp description. Any typical laptop will do for most camps. You can buy a decent laptop for ~$200 now – HP Stream 11 laptop is a good example. Limited # of loaner laptops are available & they can be reserved in advance by paying $25 alongwith the registration.

In the interest of making our camps more accessible to families, we will have additional buffer time for drop-off and pick-up before and after camp hours. Morning sessions start at 9am – you can drop your children as early as 8:30am. Afternoon sessions end at 4pm – you can pick-up your children as late as 5pm. With 1-day advance notice to [email protected], you can drop off earlier or pickup late. It will be $5 for every 30 minutes. Payment is due at the time of drop-off or pickup. Without the advance notification, late pickup fee will be $1 per minute beyond 5pm.

We will serve snacks and meals for all campers as long as they don’t have any food allergies. We will provide complete supervision from sign-in to sign-out (one instructor will accompany the kids to restrooms as well, considering the “open” nature of college buildings) including the lunch-hour. Parents are required to sign-in and sign-out in the respective camp rooms.

Coding Camps in your city/school/community?

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 – Write to [email protected] – we will be happy to work with you to make it happen.

If your community/town is under-privileged & majority of the families cannot afford to pay our modest fees, no worries! Let us work together to get a corporate sponsorship & make the camps happen at a fraction of the total cost to your families! Write to [email protected] to request for financial support to run our camps in your community.
