Our wildly popular summer camp is back and better than ever! Held Monday through Friday from July 12th through August 6th, this month-long in-person camp combines project-based coding, STEM exploration, hands-on activities, epic team challenges, theme days, and more. With one, two, and four week options available, Camp Coding Space will fit your schedule and give your child a summer adventure they'll never forget. Camp is recommended for ages 8+.
At The Coding Space, we specialize in providing a safe and inclusive learning environment for kids to have fun, be challenged, and discover their passions. Our teachers never lecture; instead, they ask targeted questions using the Socratic Method to get students thinking and problem solving on their own. By focusing on the development of computational thinking skills, intellectual confidence, self-expression, and independence, our students learn to code while growing as thinkers, learners, and leaders.
The Coding Space will follow all guidelines and precautions as outlined by the CDC and NYC mandates to ensure the health and safety of our campers. This includes daily health screenings, social distancing and masking indoors, and maintaining open windows for ventilation. All teachers will be fully vaccinated, and we will limit the number of campers to a maximum of eight per week.

We'll kick-off each day with fun new ways of getting to know each other through activities like The Price Is Right or Cool Hidden Talents.
We challenge our students to create projects as unique as they are. Students receive individualized attention and curriculum customization through experienced teachers and a 4:1 student-to-teacher ratio. Using the Socratic method, our teachers ask questions aimed at helping students discover their own solutions to problems. Whether your child is new to coding or already building their own websites and projects, students progress through our curriculum at the pace that’s right for them.
Time to stretch, tinker, and play. Students take a break from their screens and discover the opportunities to create and explore that exist all around them. Centered in the world of STEM, these activities range from short story writing and yoga to cryptography and science experiments, and much more. These opportunities support cognitive, emotional, and social development, allowing students to grow in fun new ways.
Campers will build their engineering grit and teamwork skills by collaborating on daily STEM challenges, like building the strongest bridge or tallest tower, making a light blink in Arduino, inventing a Rube Goldberg machine to solve a problem, and more!
Which team can solve a riddle first? Win the STEM challenge of the day? Address a global problem? The winning team will be awarded points for the day and a chance to win the weekly Coding Space Cup! This year, we’ve added an exciting new event to the mix, the Weekly Project Challenge! Beginning on Monday, each camper is given the opportunity to create a unique project around one of two themes. Students are invited to collaborate as a team or work on their own. On Friday, students will share their projects with the class. The project selected by the teacher as the winner will receive a ton of points for their team!
We close each day with a reflection on the day's work, lessons learned, and future goals and share with the group.
At The Coding Space, we are passionate about creating a space for campers to dream big and see how technology can be a tool for changing the world.
One of our key programs is the Code for Change Challenge. Each summer, campers learn about one of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and work on developing a technology solution to tackle this global issue.
This summer campers will have the opportunity to build projects around an SDG they'd like to tackle and present it to the camp at the end of the week. Participants will win big points for their Coding Space Cup team.
Each week campers team up to tackle exciting challenges. Dividing up into teams named for famous computer scientists, campers will learn more about the history of this revolutionary field while engaging in friendly competitions to encourage collaboration, problem-solving, creativity, and grit.
Teams collect points throughout the week based on such achievements as gong rings (how The Coding Space celebrates completed projects), STEM challenges, physical activities, and more. The week’s winning team will claim the ultimate prize—The Coding Space Cup!
We understand that plans change. That’s why we built this summer's experience with a flexible refund policy—so that you can book with confidence. Cancellations made up to two weeks before the start date of your session are eligible for a full refund. Cancellations that are requested up to one week in advance are eligible for a 100% credit that can be used for a future summer or after-school session. Sadly, we are unable to issue refunds or credits for cancellations requested less than a week in advance of the scheduled camp session date.

We believe that everyone has a right to equitable education in a safe and inclusive learning environment and are committed to increasing access to our high quality coding programs. Our scholarship program accounts for 25 percent of the students we teach. Our long-term goal as we work towards educational equity is to reach 50 percent of our students through at-cost and pro-bono services.
“My son loved every minute of camp. The counselors were super fun, patient, and the program was smart and engaging. The camp also does a tech pre-check the day before to ensure the best experience.”
"The Coding Space is fun to me because they let me make up my own ideas, have fun doing the activities, and then share! It's a place with a message of fun to me."
“I was impressed by how much one-on-one feedback James received. I really liked the fact that the camp counselors didn't tell him what to do, but rather encouraged him to problem solve on his own.”
