Our CodeMakers camp in Vancouver will be run 2-3 times a week. The age group varies depending on the week – we want to be able to offer computer science camp to all kids, but we are limited to lab space! This year we are offering four different themes for our CodeMakers Camps.

UBC Department of Computer Science

UBC’s Department of Computer Science is proud to present our Girls Only! CodeMakers initiatives. This collaboration will bring the best of Geering Up the UBC Department of Computer Science together for incredible Girls Only! classroom experiences! Look out for an amazing Girls Only! week July 24 – 28 and and special Women In Code initiatives throughout the entire summer. With their help, Geering Up is able to set aside special seats for girls in each classroom!
