FAQs

If your child is younger or new to coding, Game Makers Level 1 (taught with MIT Scratch software) is a great introduction (it’s like ‘LEGO on a laptop’ where kids use drag-and-drop multi-coloured blocks to code dynamic games and projects. 

For older or Intermediate and Advanced coders, App Makers (taught with MIT App Inventor software) is a great introduction to app-making fundamentals.

Both Minecraft and Roblox are beloved recreational platforms that nurture creativity, computational thinking, logic and problem-solving.  

For all Coding camps & STEM – Movie Makers camp: families are encouraged to supply their own device, ie. a laptop -or- a tablet with keyboard + mouse. Alternatively, Codezilla rentals of a laptop + mouse are available ($10/day).

For half-day camps: please bring a nut-free snack, flip-top water bottle, sunscreen, hat. 

For full day camps: please bring a nut-free lunch + 2 snacks, flip-top water bottle, sunscreen, hat and swimsuit/towel for water days.

As a mom-run business, we know that outdoor playtime (aka screen-free time) is important. Campers follow a school-based schedule, eg. 1 x 60 min lunch, 2 x 20 min recess break (AM + PM) for plenty of fresh air and outdoor recreation at local parks, splash pads and nearby green spaces.  

Our camp hours are 9 – 4pm. 

Optional extended care is also available:

  • Early-drop off: 8:30 – 9am
  • Late pick up: 4 – 5pm

For full day camps, we host ‘Family Friday’ from 3 – 4pm. Families are welcome to watch their child(ren) present their coding and/or STEM projects. It’s a tech-rific, STEM-tastic end-of-camp party!

We intentionally operate small-size camps to ensure that every child has a personal and positive experience. Our STEM camps and Coding camps are 8-10 children per camp. Both of these camps operate on either side of a large classroom, totalling 16 – 20 children with a 1:7 instructor-child ratio.

When it comes to coding, age is less important than prior coding experience.  

  • Roblox and Minecraft are creative options that many kids already enjoy playing at home.
  • Game Makers Level 1 (Beginners) is ideal for kids who are new to coding (computational thinking) or who have limited coding experience at school. This is taught using MIT Scratch software. 
  • App Makers is the next level up from Game Makers, as it uses MIT App Inventor. It’s more advanced but a kid-friendly introduction to app development.

Our goal is to run a caring and inclusive camp where all children have ‘Educational Fun’. Please contact us to discuss your child’s individual needs if the answers below don’t address your concerns. 

For  younger children or those new to camp: parents can receive a text or email + photo update about their child. We love to over-share! 🙂  

For children with learning disabilities or special needs: If your child is comfortable in a classroom setting, they will likely adapt well to camp. Many children who are on the spectrum have enjoyed our camp.  

For children who require 1:1 support: if your child has a support worker, they are welcome to attend camp alongside your child. Since we are a small camp, we are unable to provide 1:1 support to individual children

We know that parents know their child best. Your child may be suitable for camp if they are close to the listed age range (ie. within 6 months of turning 5 years old), comfortable in a classroom environment, possess reasonable maturity levels and academic capabilities and/or has an older sibling attending camp that week. Please contact us to discuss your child’s individual needs.

If your child doesn’t like Codezilla camp for any reason, we offer a full refund of days remaining (minus 2.4% credit card fees). 

 

If you decide to cancel your camp purchase prior to the camp start date:

  • 4+ weeks prior to camp start, 100% refund (minus $25 admin fee + 2.4% credit card fees)
  • 2-4 weeks prior to camp start, 50% refund (minus $25 admin fee + 2.4% credit card fees)
  • 1 week prior to start, no refund 
  • No refund due to missed camp days 
  • No refund if your child is asked to leave camp due to dangerous or threatening behavior

We promise a week of Educational Fun! As a mom-run business, that also includes Safety & Outdoor play.

Some Codezilla features that we’re especially proud of:

  • Our camps appeal to all kids! We typically have a 50/50 boy-to-girl ratio – a rarity in STEM and coding!
  • Smaller camp size = nice camp environment! Our staff get to know the kids, and the kids get to know other interesting peers!
  • Great value for money! Since starting in 2017, Codezilla has repeatedly offered best value for families. We also donate spots to Parent Councils and deserving families.
  • Teacher and Mom-approved: our biggest champions are teachers and moms, including Parent Council volunteers who invite us to their school time and time again.
