Code Academy for 6 to 8

Are you looking for coding classes or programming courses for kids in Singapore, that will boost your child’s gaming skills and build several life skills like problem solving?

With Code Academy camps, our coding courses in Singapore, our mission is to make coding for kids simple, fun, and challenging. So your little gamer will not only design his or her very own computer games that anyone can play, but can even challenge their friends using an online learning platform!

The camps will start with an introduction to different coding languages for kids, before delving deeper into HTML, CSS and JavaScript, the technology that powers over 90% of online applications.

By the end of the camp, each child will know how to design, code and publish and share their very own, fully functioning online game!

Our Code Academy camps:


We cover 3 types of coding topics, and have camps of different levels in each, to match the personalities, needs, and experiences of all children. Our coding topics are:

1. MINECRAFT: It is a game about placing blocks and creating objects to build a completely new 3D, virtual world. This game really pushes the imaginative powers and creativity skills.

2. ROBLOX: It is a global game creation platform where users can create and share experiences with each other using the Roblox studio platform. It is usually a multiplayer game and encourages social interaction. It can also include some programming.
