The Summer Camp courses are offered on a once-a-week basis. There are five days in the course, 2 hours long each session. The courses are 100% FREE of charge and Microsoft provides the computers.

With the Grand Opening of Microsoft‘s new store at Miami’s Dadeland Mall, South Florida youngsters are in for a special treat this summer: CODE CAMP! Moms and Dads can now register their 8 to 15 year old wanna-be-tekkies in these FREE courses to develop their children’s computer skills.

The camps being offered this summer are:

Office Unleashed Camp
Microsoft Office is more than just book reports and schedules – you can get creative and learn along the way! Engage in fun activities like writing a short story in Microsoft Word, creating a word search in Excel, building an animated slide show in PowerPoint, and designing postcards you can send to your friends in Publisher.

Game Masters Camp
Become the master of your own gaming world! Learn how to program, design, and produce your own video games and then share them with friends. Get the satisfaction of creating, programming and developing games for yourself while learning important skills that may inspire you want to work with computers in the future.

TechTots
We will have digital story time, hands-on technology learning with TechMouse, and a snack time for children ages two to six years old. Join us in our Safety class where Tech Mouse will teach parents and children fun techniques for using technology wisely.

At least one parent or caregiver must remain onsite at all times with the child.
