Check out our Summer Camps HERE

Coding in the Dark: Bring Computer Science to Light

Young minds will embark on an electrifying journey into the world of computer science and coding. From programming LED light shows to creating bright wearable crafts and even making a laser tag game with infrared sensors, this unique summer camp is designed for middle school students who are curious, imaginative, and ready to explore the magic of light-based projects.

Crafty Computing: Crafting Creatures with Code

Crafty Computing brings Computer Science to life through a vibrant fusion of creativity, fun, and technology! Young learners will craft adorable creatures, objects, and games out of a variety of materials, sparking their imagination with color and texture. Hands-on projects such as Pom-pom Critters, sock puppets, and binary bead bracelets help demonstrate key concepts and provide a foundation for programming. Both on and off the screen, it’s a whirlwind of fun, fluff, and fantastic learning!

Interstellar Creators 3D Design & Printing

Using Tinkercad, Interstellar Creators takes upper elementary kids on a tour of the world of 3D design and printing. Through the use of 3D printing, participants will design and create eye-catching space-themed objects, such as rockets, moon bases, and aliens. Students will engage in hands-on creating and don’t need any prior experience; their printed cosmic masterpieces will be assembled into an engaging final diorama.

Animation Adventures: Explore the World of Animation

Learn the ins and outs of character design, animation crafts, and animation techniques like stop motion with Animation Adventures—an immersive and captivating opportunity. As campers advance their knowledge and abilities in animation, they will be encouraged to showcase their individual spark and creative expression.

Space Mini-Game Lab

Using Scratch, upper elementary students will work on basic space-themed 2D games while learning the fundamentals of coding in the Space Mini Game Lab. No prior experience is necessary; the emphasis is on simply and joyfully developing core abilities.

Robots in Motion w/ VEX Go: A Week of Robotic Adventures

Join us for an exciting week filled with robotic adventures! Start with the basics of building with Vex Go Robotics kits, then go on to the more complex task of creating robots that can process data from sensors and execute programs that you will write. Watch with delight as these robots take on tasks like manipulating things and navigating mazes! Watch as these dynamic constructions go from using gears and elastic bands to generate power to using electricity. Don’t pass up this opportunity to learn by doing! Come celebrate a week of robotics creativity and fun with us!


At CodeVA, we believe that learning should be fun, engaging, and hands-on. Our summer camps are designed to provide your child with a unique and memorable experience that will inspire them to explore the world of coding and computer science. Join us this summer and watch your child’s creativity and confidence soar!
