Coding and Camp February 19, 2015

Hi-Hills Day Camp prides itself on flexibility, convenience and fun! One way we are able to provide all three to our families is through the combination of traditional day camp and enrichment programs offered over our 11-week summer session. We have something for all ages, from academics, athletics, and the creative and performing arts, to science and technology.

Each year, Gill St. Bernard’s School (where Hi-Hills is located) participates in the global “Hour of Code” movement. The Hour of Code is an international project designed to introduce students to computer coding. The program is based on the recognition that most students never (or rarely) have had an opportunity to try computer coding and that computer coding skills will become increasingly important in the coming years. For more information on the Hour of Code please visit hourofcode.org.

Due to the overwhelming demand and popularity within our campers’ various school systems, we at Hi-Hills have expanded our technology programs to include coding. In the summer of 2015, we will offer app, mod, video game and aircraft design classes.

Camp creates an atmosphere where children can grow and succeed in areas they enjoy both inside and out of the classroom. As an extension of the Gill St. Bernard’s family, our combination program allows for students to conquer their individualism while also having fun. Furthermore, it helps students stay involved in education for more than just the school year. Providing these types of opportunities for children is something we strive for here at Hi-Hills.
