Vineyard App Camp

Ages: entering grades 5 through 8 in September 2022
Hours: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Coding…the language of the future!  If you’re into learning about tech and designing for a cause, this week-long
introduction to computer skills and entrepreneurship is for you. Our new partner, Vineyard App Camp, will teach enrolled campers how to code and build an app for a non-profit organization. Campers will select community-based initiatives that interest them and engage in entrepreneurial dialogue with a non-profit where they identify apps that can improve the nonprofit’s operations. They will then become product managers and designers who collaborate on their app through multiple phases! Campers could alternatively continue the work of other campers from around the country with Vineyard App Camps projects that are already in development.  We’ll also have time for some games, cool activities, and classic summer fun. Come join us for one of Beaver’s newest collaborations!
