Kids loose one third of the knowledge gained during the school year, each summer!
If you’re kids aren’t going to summer school, are you considering summer camp? I have a few friends who are looking to send their children to a summer camp similar to Camp North Star this summer, but what about your children, have you decided what they are going to do this summer? You can help your kids hone their edge over summer vacation with a tech camp experience that includes maker-style activities and outdoor play.
CodeREV KIDS has expanded its popular coding and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) summer camps in Los Angeles and throughout California. With locations in Westwood, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Encino and San Diego, CodeREV has expanded to the San Francisco Bay Area and Orange County as well.
Tech camps provide fun, maker-style activities for students of all abilities
CodeREV, a leading coding for kids and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) education innovator, has expanded its popular tech summer camps. Now, more students can get coding and creating instead of losing critical skills over the summer. California has a strong legacy of innovation in computing and programming. Maybe your son or daughter is the next Wozniak (programmer, Apple co-founder) or Shaw (the first female video game designer) destined to break new ground and lead the way for future generations! I hear my friends kids are taking advantage of Ravenscroft Summer Camps and I’m sure that will put them in better stead going forward to possibly to be the next big innovator.
Students from first grade through ninth can learn skills that are not only useful but also fun. Learning coding can help students with everything from creating incredible school projects, higher order thinking, math, game development and robotics. They may even be able to feature their work on the latest showcase down the line afterward! Through CodeREV tech summer camps, kids can acquire skills that will also help define the knowledge workers of tomorrow. You don’t have to worry that your kids will be sitting inside, in front of a screen all summer either. These camps offer fun and unique outdoor activities that strengthen team-building and let students run and play, too.
From the Founder
“We all know that most kids love to play video games, but they love to create them even more. At CodeREV, we teach kids how to create their own eye-popping video games and 3D worlds and use engaging games like Minecraft to sharpen their math skills,” shared CodeREV Founder and CEO Evan Boorman. “Educators know that over the summer months, students typically lose up to one third of the knowledge they learned in the previous school year. Our camps not only help students retain those skills, they help prepare them for fields that employers report are in short supply. Students love our camps because the courses and skills they learn are fun and geared toward their interests. Parents love our tech summer camps because the curriculum is relevant to high-demand 21st century skills.”
CodeREV is led by Boorman, who has worked in STEM education for 15 years, and Chief Education Innovation Officer John Stuppy, Ph.D. Dr. Stuppy is a nationally recognized leader in education, technology, game-based learning and student achievement. He has held education leadership positions for over three decades in companies such as Sylvan Learning Centers and TutorVista. The camps are staffed by a dedicated team of educators. CodeREV teachers have both technology education experience and previous work experience in the ever-growing tech industry.
