Looking for something for your little ones to do this summer? Still not sending them off to in-person camps? The Spurs have got you covered.

This summer, the Spurs organization is hosting three virtual coding camps, each available in English and Spanish. Beginners can take part in the introductory sessions led by Youth Code Jam computer programmers using MIT’s Scratch technology. Scratch is the largest coding community for children.

The Coyote Coding Camp, presented by Raising Cane’s, teaches kids the basics of coding by creating their own basketball game with the Coyote. Each camp is five-days long and available on-line. There are two virtual camps available for students in grades 3-7, the first starts the week of June 21 and the second starts June 28.

Your older coders can also learn how to code using Python, which is one of the most universal popular programming languages.

The Spurs Give Coding Camp, presented by Frost Bank, is also a five-day camp. This one, for students grades 6-12 teaches how to code with Python. The Python instruction starts July 26.

Register here for all three camps.
