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.
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.
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.

The word "coding" can seem so daunting to new programmers, and for those ambitious enough to take the plunge, the learning curve can be extremely discouraging. DevKit smashes the barrier to entry by providing you with a fun, friendly environment where you can create your own awesome apps and games -- without having to write any code!
Along the way, DevKit teaches all of the important logic, concepts, procedures, and terminology that will make learning your first coding language easier than ever before.Program Street Address: 55 North 22nd St
