Looking to give your son or daughter a leg up for the future? Sign your child up for one of our week-long DevKit summer camps! Our campers will learn how to use DevKit to design, create, test, and export their very own
mobile apps and games from scratch.
At the end of the week, we will help them sign up for their own developer accounts with Apple and Google so they can upload their creations to the iOS and Google Play app stores for a full year following the camp!
All DevKit camps are at least 4 days long (Monday through Thursday), each full day will be a seven hour session from 9:00am to 4:00pm, and each half day will be a three hour session from 9:00am to 12:00pm. There will be an optional session on Friday that we will spend uploading the campers' apps to the app stores. Those who do not want to participate may use the "Web Publishing" feature to share their apps from a URL. Early drop-off will be available starting at 8:00am, and late pick up will be available until 5:00pm.
Our camps are for any students who will be entering grades 5 through 8 in the fall. Regardless of how much programming experience your child has, he or she will learn a ton about coding and app development, and we can guarantee that they will be able to create their own app by the end of the week. Some sessions will be girls only, and some will be a mix of boys and girls.
We will spend the first day teaching campers how to use DevKit by building an app together as a group. In the following three days, students will brainstorm and develop their own apps from scratch using DevKit, and we'll be there to answer any questions they have. If your child wants to upload his or her app to the iOS and Google Play app stores, that's what we'll do on Friday.
DevKit is an iOS application, so you'll need to bring one of the iOS devices listed in the registration form. For those without one of the approved devices to bring, we'll have a few devices per camp that we can lend out, so if this is you, sign up early to reserve yours! If you plan on uploading to the iOS App Store at the end of the week, you'll also need an Apple laptop to bring.
By the end of the week, students will have learned exactly what is required to take an app idea and bring it to life. Those who want to come for the fifth day will have their own developer accounts with Apple and Google, and they'll have used them to upload their app to both app stores for the world to download and play! Campers will have 100% of the rights to any apps they build at the camp. Also, campers will leave with a license to the DevKit app that will enable them to create apps for a full year.
