We’ve teamed up with the crew at Code Camp to giveaway a $500 voucher to use on their workshops!

Got a little gamer on your hands who wants to explore creating games, programs, animations, a You Tube channel or even bring to life their DJ dreams? Enter Code Camp!

Code Camp is a school holiday workshop for kids aged 5–13 who love technology. Code Camp offers courses in person, and also online to help bring to life the dreams for kids.

If there’s one thing that any parent knows, it’s that screens are here to stay. With device time now a big part of kids’ lives, you might be wondering how to manage your children’s time wisely over the upcoming April school holidays.

Rather than letting kids get too wrapped up in endless games and videos, why not encourage their interest in a healthy way by encouraging them to actually learn how to code.

Code Camp – Australia’s leading school holiday camp for kids aged 5 – 13 – has an incredible assortment of interesting programs for kids in their 2-3 day in person and online programs. And who knows – your child’s interest may be sparked so much that they become the next Steve Jobs or STEM whiz later on!

DRONE CAMP: A SMASH HIT

Last summer’s brand-new Drone Camp (ages 9-13) proved to be incredibly popular. All initial camps sold out in just a  few days, which resulted in extra camps being put on – which also sold out.

More than 400 kids attended one of the 31 Drone Camps held at 29 different venues across Australia, completing an incredible 2,500 drone missions.

Hayley Markham, Code Camp co-founder / COO and mother of three, said, “One of the most important drone missions we embark on at Code Camp involves project-based learning to use drones when searching for koalas to track their population numbers. Kids can also channel their inner David Attenborough and make a documentary film along the way.

“This is particularly critical learning for kids at a time when government officials have declared koalas endangered  across much of eastern Australia, citing the impacts of drought, bush fires and habitat loss on the country’s dwindling marsupial population.

“We aren’t just teaching kids how to fly drones for fun, we are teaching them the importance of drone technology in society, educating them to be socially aware and in this instance, to grasp the importance of conservation efforts to ensure a healthy future for koalas.”

DJ CAMP: HIGH DEMAND FOR KIDS TO BE THE NEXT SUPERSTAR DJ

Created in collaboration with professional DJs, DJ Camp (ages 8-13) has been incredibly popular since launching. Here Australia’s next hottest young DJs of tomorrow take their first steps into the exciting world of mixing music to create unforgettable experiences.

Over two days, budding music makers learn from real DJs and producers how to create and code their very own mix, develop a DJ persona and brand, design their logo plus a poster and some cool merchandise. They then end on a high performing their own CODEchella track for their classmates.

“We start kids off at the beginning explaining what DJing is really all about, with song structure, counting beats and different genres,” said Ms Markham.

“Then it’s time to plug in and play around on the decks to get a grip on what each control does. Our talented instructors teach students everything they need to know to create awesome sounds.”

DC SUPER HEROES: LAST CHANCE TO CREATE YOUR OWN DC SUPER HERO GAME

For game creators of the future, Code Your Own DC Superhero Game (ages 7-12), will be on offer again for the last time. Here kids will design, code and create an awesome game with Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman.

“Experienced tutors assist kids using DC themed backgrounds and collectibles, special power-ups and even shrinking potions. Kids will use a mix of creative level design, storytelling and problem- solving,” said Code Camp co-founder Ben Levi.

“For kids new to coding, the Spark camp is where everyone starts their journey. Here kids learn to design their own arcade-style DC Super Hero game with logic and drag and drop coding. Meanwhile, for kids ready to take their coding skills to the next level at Ignite, they will use drag and drop coding plus advance to JavaScript coding to build their games.”

Since 2013 Code Camp has inspired more than 100,000 kids in over 350 schools across Australia to unleash imaginative ideas through technology, so it’s worth checking out if you need a break from your offspring for a few days!

Winners for this competition

  1. B. BourkeVIC
  • My daughter would love to write apps. She aspires to be like senior girls at her school who enter technology competitions… but we have no idea where to start!


  • Which kid isn’t obsessed with technology? Mine are no different and would absolutely love this activity. Who know? It may encourage them to pursue these sorts of things as a career rather than just a way to have some fun!


  • Zoe’s attended a couple of classes before and absolutely shined as a result. The only problem is now I can’t afford to send her again. Being a single parent, while rewarding, isn’t financially rewarding unfortunately. This competition can help unleash Zoe’s imagination and potential to create something fantastic for her future.


  • It would be great to get them involved in learning how to code rather than just playing games for hours!


  • My son would love to learn more about coding!


  • I think one, or even both of my step kids may get some enjoyment out of this prize. Might even keep them off the phones/laptops/ps4 for awhile and get them doing something worth wild.


  • I would like my daughter to have a opportunity to learn something new and use her creativity in technology


  • My niece is very creative and would love this to learn a new skill.


  • My son has rythym and style but needs help with his deck, DJ camp would be a hit.


  • I have at a few coding schools for my son but am unsure which to go with. I would like to channel my son’s love for gaming into something more educational and STEM oriented. He is very IT proficient which I would like to also nuture.


  • My daughter has been a gymnast for years and has had to give it up due to injuries, she love tech so I am thinking this would be an awesome distraction for her!


  • My loves technology, loves playing games, using the computer I know he would love to learn more.


  • Coding is my granddaughters favourite thing at school and she is great at it…… this would enable her to gain more knowledge as I definitely cant help her haha


  • Both my boys would love any of these code camps and I’d love help in keeping them entertained over the holidays! They love coding, gaming, music and excitement of any kind. They are keen to learn and always up for fun!


  • My kids keep telling me that they are going to do ‘gaming’ as a job. This will give them a fighting chance to do what they love and as parents, we can feel good about it too.
