Kids love technology, games, and having fun with friends. Parents want to give their kids the best and brightest future possible. Everyone wins at Code Ninjas. Kids learn to code through our engaging game-based curriculum that teaches teamwork, logic, math, and problem solving. They gain vital skills while having a blast. That’s the Code Ninjas way!
Technology is advancing at an incredible rate, and we’re just getting started. Code Ninjas believes that there’s never been a more exciting time to advance our culture – starting with our youngest ones. Every kid deserves the chance to unlock their innate, unlimited capacity to learn.
Whether or not they pursue coding as a career, we want to provide kids with skills that will help them pursue their dreams.

Our summer program is designed to be a fun, relaxed, and interesting environment where the children have a hands-on learning experience. The mornings will be devoted to a new topic each session and the afternoons a time to enjoy the outdoors with play. Extended day summer will include more fun with traditional toys and games as well as stories and a provided snack. The summer camp provides an experience which will offer an opportunity for cooperation, independence and discovery for each child. A caring, committed and experienced staff will guide the children in a safe, supportive, and structured environment. We welcome children from ages 3-5 for our Children’s House Summer Program and children ages 6-12 for our Elementary Summer Program. Although most of the children will be students during the year it is not necessary to be enrolled in the school to attend the summer program.
