TYNKER SUMMER CAMPS
Where Kids Learn to Code
Many parents worry about the amount of time their children spend online. But what is often overlooked is the passion children have for computers, and the importance digital skills will have in their future.
To harness this passion, kids can join the Summer Coding Camp in Whistler this summer. The camps are for boys and girls in grade 5–7, and no prior programming experience is required. Full day camps will run from July 14-18 and August 11-15 at Millennium Place.
Children will learn how to create games and animated stories, which they can play on any computer and share with their friends. Children will learn the fundamentals of programming in a fun and intuitive way. Parents can go online any time to see the real web apps their kids have created.
“I see the passion my 11-year old son has for computers, and I’d love to see him become an active participant instead of just a passive consumer. That’s why I started these camps”, says Thomas Christensen, Summer Coding Camp Leader.

Guest lecturers with local expertise and specialized knowledge of the area will be brought in to offer site-specific insight.
Whistler will be explored through design activities, adventure photography, mapping and structural studies.
