Free Microsoft Coding Summer Camps

Free Microsoft Coding Summer Camps at Microsoft retail stores across the country become interactive, hands-on technology classrooms where children learn by doing. The camps, designed for kids age 8-13, offer everything from video game design to digital photography to movie making to storytelling. The two-hour camps are free and drop-in (registration appreciated)!  Kids learn how to create their own games and apps, and turn their business ideas into a reality, in a fun and supportive environment — try YouthSpark at your local Microsoft Stores.  From coding and computer science fundamentals, to movie-making and business basics, Microsoft wants to provide students with the skills they need to realize their dreams.

Every day, every week there’s something new – take a look at the first day Monday, June 18:
