One of our most popular programs, Python is perfect for kids interested in exploring all of Python’s capabilities. Campers will navigate the text-based programming in IDLE, Python’s integrated development environment, and learn to use the key building blocks of code, such as variables, conditionals, and loops. They will explore how to combine these elements to create interesting and complex programs to take home. More advanced students can tackle more complicated challenges including file I/O, arrays, and functions.

In addition, Campers will create their own applications and games with graphics and multiple players, while reinforcing skills in Python’s fundamental features like variables, loops, conditionals and functions. More advanced campers can also extend their skills into real-world programming challenges using Python’s wide variety of built-in libraries.
