Too many members in a team
YouTube camp. My child was in a team of 4. Two of the members were 1-2 years older and dominated the project. My child seemed to have played a relatively small part in the overall project. This provided the opportunity for less-driven students to simply cruise through the day without learning. The opportunity for the older members to lead and mentor were also missed. Perhaps closer anticipatory supervision would be more beneficial. Only generic details were provided at the end of day 1 and 2, so there was no opportunity for timely constructive ...feedback. Poor value for the amount charged. UPDATE: Code Camp contacted me and explained that a team of 4 should not have happened. I appreciate their effort in ensuring better quality. There might need to be further training of teaching staff on expected standard so they can provide better mentoring for students to develop technical skills as well as communication/ leadership ability.
The course was a lot of fun and I look forward to coming back. The course content could have been more advanced for my needs. The course was magnificent and the tutors were enthusiastic. The teaching staff were very helpful and patient with various technical difficulties. In all, it was fun.
My child spent 3 days at YouTube creators and didn’t learn anything new. It is a program suitable for very beginners. This was an underwhelming experience. I would have liked to see more effective ways to use YouTube, creating channels, gaining subscribers, how to upload and ways to use YouTube safely and effectively.
Great fun for my 8 years old son.
Great fun for my 8 years old son. Learned how to build your own game is awesome! And the staff are very friendly. Will join next term. Thank you all!
My kid loves it and it is good to have a taste of the future :D!
Very good keep my daughter exicited and passionated about learning coding. She also has bit of idea how other kids are doing for other course, it is perfect for the kids for progress to the future world!
Awesome CODE CAMP
My son is doing it every school holidays and loves it.
He learnt a lot and he is very excited every time.
And a big plus, he made some solid friendships.
Fantastic holiday camp for kids!
My girls 8 and 10 absolutely loved YouTube Creators and the end result was fantastic- really great content created. Now they are excited to try DJ Camp next school holidays! Thanks CC
It was an awesome learning experience
My daughter really enjoyed the content, teaching and instructors interaction! It’s a good way to balance learning with fun. We totally recommend it and hope to see more girls doing coding camps. We want to see more girls coding!
My 10 year old son absolutely loved the DJ camp. The instructors were friendly and enthusiastic and I was amazed at how much he learnt. The content seemed pitched at just the right level. Thanks Code Camp!
Stop Motion Animation Camp was a winner!
It was great to have Fletch showing me how he made the film and discussing different concepts in creating his story. Really like the planning aspect of identifying a story, casting characters, shooting the film and then post processing of adding sound effects etc.
Spark definitely sparked interest!!
All 3 of my boys attended Coding Camp for the first time and really enjoyed it. They all learnt so much and want to come back to try one of the other camps that they offer. Thank you for keeping them engaged for the 3 days and they were so proud of their coding and youTube achievements.
My daughters love it. They want more classes! She said she definitely attend it every school holidays ^^
I can see kids learnt a lot from the course. They are really happy. So I definitely satisfied with the teaching and course content. The difficulty level is just great for kids between 8-12.
It's the first time & Perfect choice
Our son (9 years old) was not sure to join the camp because he thought the word "coding" seems difficult to him.
But after the day 1, he said he really enjoyed & want to go everyday.
Every School Holiday BOUND!
My son joined YouTube Content Creators & he absolutely loved it. I’d definitely sign him up again; he came home with a lot of knowledge and let’s not forget the most important thing - H A P P Y !
I recommend this to all.
We’ve done two camps and can’t wait for more.
My 8 year old is buzzing after doing the stop motion course. After the first day she came home and immediately started putting her skills to work. Love it! Already excited about what she wants to do next holidays.
Questions & Answers
Hi, we are booked into the Animation Camp at St Andrews for 5/6 January and have requested a refund multiple times in the last 2 weeks (via email and chat on the CodeCamp website) due to covid lockdown on Northern Beaches. To date I have received no response whatsoever from anyone at CodeCamp. Could someone please help. Happy to provide booking reference etc when not via a public forum. Many thanks, Andrew Tait
Hi Andrew, apologies for the delay here on Product Review. I can see that the team replied and processed a full credit on January 4. Please feel free to reach out via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if any follow-up questions. Many thanks. Ben
Do you need to have done spark or ignite before you do this camp. (even if you have prior experience from another provider?)
The description says you do but the latest description I read of ignite said "unless you have heaps of outside experience". Best to call and confirm.
Hi, I am considering enrolling my 5 1/2 into the coding course at Newcastle Grammar. He can be a little shy around kids he doesn’t know and quiet in big groups. I was just wondering if a course like this would be good for him and how many have booked for the 16 & 17 course and if there were any boys booked in?
Hi Alissa, thanks so much for getting in touch. Our Little Heroes camp is designed to get kids working together in teams to solve fun coding problems. We often find that kids who are shy will walk away with new friends and a newfound love of coding :) Little Heroes tends to have a 50/50 male/female ratio so that won't be an issue either. Thanks, Josh
Ok great it sounds like a lot of fun. Do you have many spots left for the 16 & 17?
Hi Alissa, we still have good availability for those dates in Newcastle. We expect this will sell out nearer the time though :)
