Not Your Typical Coding Class
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.

Class Kickoff & Challenges
Each week, students are challenged to learn new programming techniques and stretch their minds in fresh, interesting ways. We'll kick off each class with a warm welcome and ideas and inspiration for new challenges to tackle.
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, even in their own living rooms. Centered in the world of STEM, these activities range from short story writing and yoga to virtual escape rooms, cryptography, and much more. These opportunities support cognitive, emotional, and social development, allowing students to grow in fun new ways.
Each class ends with a reflection on the day's work, lessons learned, and future goals.
Macs and PCs are strongly preferred for our online program. If you need to use a Chromebook, please let us know ahead of time as it may require extra logistical coordination on our end. Please note: tablets, smartphones, and iPads will not work.
Our Flexible Refund Policy
We understand that plans change. That’s why we built this summer's online 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.
What Families Are Saying About Camp Coding Space
“The Coding Space has opened up a whole new world for our daughter, which was especially needed when she couldn’t see friends in person. Her classes are the highlight of her week, and it’s so incredible to watch her progress.”
“I love it here because in my other classes and camps, they just give the answers to you. Here I get to figure it out for myself. It’s more exciting because I learned it myself.”
—Sofia, age 9
“The Coding Space has been a wonderful learning experience for two of my children. The classes are fun and challenging and the instructors are caring, knowledgeable and professional.”
