Learning how to code. Developing creative ideas as a team. Presenting work to others.
The goal of Young Hacks Academy isn’t simply to provide a fun week of summer camp, but also to give students meaningful skills and knowledge that they can take with them when the week ends. We aim to equip kids with a foundation in programming, and to instill a passion for creative problem solving and a commitment to service.
It’s not all about computers, though. It’s summer, after all. As serious as we are about exploring technology, YHA is committed to having a good time away from the screen, too. In addition to programming time inside, campers will head outside for unplugged activities like treasure hunts, riddle relays, and chain tag.
