Expand Your Catalog With Coding Classes
Great for both everyday camps or weekly sessions!
Difficulty: Simply coding courses range from beginners to advanced written with ages 11 – 18 in mind. Students will be learning to code using native text editors and creating fun worthwhile programs from start to finish.
Objective: To teach students how to code their own games, websites or apps and start their own online portfolio of their work.
Cost: Depends on demographic of your region, locations have charged between $99 – $300 with varying lengths and weekly schedules. We suggest if possible, schedule 10 – 15 hours of classroom time per class.
Class Size: Depends on the comfort of your teacher, many locations start with 10 – 12 students for this age group and course layout. As your teacher gets more comfortable class size may expand. Multiple teachers can handle 20+ students no problem if desired.
Most Popular Camps / Classes include::
Website Development (Beginners 11+)
Python Multiplayer Adventures (Intermediate 12+)
3D Game Design and Virtual Reality (Intermediate 12+)

Depends on needs of partnership sometimes we pay and train the teacher, other times we train and the location pays the teacher. Training includes:
- All teacher resources
- Three hours of live one on one or group sessions (from same location) with our mentor(s)
- Unlimited chat support during business hours as well as email support
- Class management and student help training videos
- Coding demo videos
- Login access to student material
- Working code files for every lesson activity
- Outline for each in class session
- Any future developed teacher resources
We are happy to share any content that we have to help make the marketing as easy as possible. We have worked with a number of universities and have yet to have issues filling up our camps with enrollments. We suggest you start small, your teacher is your greatest asset. Let them become comfortable with smaller groups and capped enrollment. This will also build excitement and urgency from local community families for the next available coding sessions!
Game Design Competitions
Game Design competitions are super fun and it gives the students something to look forward to. This is truly the best way for them to hone in their coding skills.
When you start to think through coding your own ideas that’s when you really learn to code. In short, we give the students who have complete all the coding instructions a set of images and theme for them to code their own game. We give them a deadline for them to ‘turn’ (upload or email, usually a few days before the prize day) their games in. On the last day of camp or some future date students get together to see and play each other’s games as well as receive prizes and awards. Below are a few resources to help understand this better.

Alternative Competition of Two-Hour Time Limit: https://simplycoding.org/code-wars/
Example Student Portfolio
As students continue to complete coding projects it’s important for them to add them to their portfolio to keep all their work. This will be a valuable asset to them as they apply for college or work opportunities. We also have had students add their graphic design, animations, video editing and other hobbies they have to their portfolios.
This is an example portfolio of a student who has completed multiple course projects and uploaded them live to the web.
Simply Coding was founded in 2013 offering onsite after school and summer camp coding curriculum for youth! We create top quality coding courses to engage youth by teaching today’s needed skills. Our courses are widely used across the United States & Canada by traditional schools, online schools and homeschool families. We get to see kids take our courses right in front of our eyes every week allowing us to truly gauge their interest and interactions.
