CodeCamp is a 8 week computer and innovation course for children aged 12-16 that runs year round. 

Founded and developed by Madelaine Coelho, an asset to the Arcane Development team, we introduce children to the computer principles surrounding programming languages. Students learn fundamental skills surrounding code, as well as innovative and leadership skills attributed with the field of computer science. We aim to give our students a competitive edge for the future, to empower their creativity, and to teach them skills applicable to future development.


The Arcane Advantage 

1.  We teach programming as basic literacy

We live in a world surrounded by technology. You can understand how to use a cell phone or laptop but it is more important to understand the logic behind them. Our reliance on technology will increase so the students of today need to be able to understand it and control it. Students in high school learn various languages to give them a competitive edge. However, students need to view JavaScript as the next language they have their sites on.

2.  Arcane wants to promote change

We want the younger generation to become change-makers. We want them to embody innovation and change the way our world views problems. At Arcane, we want to give them the skills to reach their full potential. We want to give them everything necessary to fuel them and create empowered young minds. We are in a world that requires you to express your ideas digitally not personally. By manipulating the digital medium, you have a chance to empower young minds to bring about change. .

3.   We want your children to bring their ideas to life

Everyone has ideas. Unfortunately, only a select few can make them happen. Without proper execution, an idea will never live up to its potential. What separates those who simply have an idea and those who make their ideas a reality is simple: the ability to code.

Do you want your child to be a thinker and innovator who can turn his or her ideas into reality? If so, encourage them to learn how to program.

4.    Arcane’s View: Programming is leadership

Programming is a straightforward process that takes control and initiative. Code gives young children the ability to be a leader in the field. It is a self-sufficient language that individuals can master. Programming gives an indisputable advantage. It is leadership in a new digital world. Arcane not only wants to create a new generation of children fluent in code but a new generation of leaders.  

In today’s culture, to know how to program is to understand, to build, and to change. All major thought leaders — from President Obama to Bill Gates to Elon Musk to Mark Zuckerberg — agree. For the leaders of tomorrow, there is perhaps no skill as important as learning to program. So if your kids aren’t learning how to program, now’s the time to start.

 
 
 

Module 1: 

JavaScript: Fundamentals of Code, Real World Programming and Innovation. 

JavaScript is a real world programming language used actively in the world of development. JavaScript is the programming language of HTML and the web. It builds connections to other programming languages, demonstrates real life connections, and enforces knowledge used to apply your creativity in a technological based way. We will be using JavaScript to edit databases, create online functions, and even dissect the functions behind a calculator. 

JavaScript is a strong option for children who are interested in math, science, and the world of logic. If your child prefers logical thinking, JavaScript can strengthen your child's critical thinking while providing an education yet fun outlet. 

 

Module 2: 

HTML & CSS: An introduction to web development

These two languages will be an asset in a coders repertoire while giving an inside look to the world of web development. HTML & CSS can work independently or be taken with the JavaScript course offered. This programming language is an asset to every girl and boy as it is the frameworks of web development. It allows children to demonstrate creativity in their code. It can be a creative outlet, a connection to the world of technology, or even a leadership opportunity for children everywhere. HTML and CSS are the founders of the internet and comprehending HTML & CSS is pertinent to understanding the world of technology. 

HTML is a strong option for children who are interested in creative technology such as animation, making their own website. If your child prefers creative thinking, HTML & CSS can be a creative outlet and provide a way to conceptualize their abstract thoughts into something amazing.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the different sessions?

The different sessions are different curriculum focusing around different programming languages. However, you do not need one particular session to attend the other. They are both distinct from each other. 

Can My child attend both sessions?

Yes, as the sessions are so distinct, there is no overlap between lessons which means you can attend both without the repetitiveness. 

Which age group are you targeting?

We are targeting teenagers between the age of 12 and 16.

What are the activities they will partake in during code camp?

They will partake in individual coding sessions, a group lesson, a snack break, interactive activities, and completion tasks. They will have the opportunity for independent learning time or one on one time with a member of the Arcane development team or a development volunteer.

Do they need to bring anything to CodeCamp?

Students don’t need to bring anything as all essential materials are provided by Arcane. Students will be provided with snacks, USB’s, workbooks, and materials. Additionally, they will have the opportunity to use an Arcane computer.

Should they bring a laptop?

Students are recommended to bring a laptop as they help aid their independent growth. While highly recommended, this is not a requirement and we have computers available to use on site. 

Do they get any souvenirs?

Students receive a t-shirt, a USB, buttons to mark achievements, and a binder to guide them step by step. 

       What happens if my child misses a lesson?

Although it is encouraged that children are present for all lessons, things come up. Students will have the opportunity to catch up via online resources and documents as they are given the full curriculum during the first lesson. Additionally, during guided lesson they will have the opportunity to review important concepts. It is still not recommended to miss a fair amount so they have a strong grasp of the curriculum and it’s major concepts.

Why is Arcane doing this?

Arcane is doing this because we see the importance of code in our future. We feel it is our duty to extend our experience to the greater community and teach these kids valuable skills. Arcane wants to help grow a new generation of innovative and critical thinkers that are leaders in whatever field they choose.
