In the morning, campers will learn the skills of a game maker through conceiving, designing, and creating their own mobile app games. The resulting games can be shared online and texted to friends for them to play on their phones. It’s a great way to combine learning with fun becoming a game developer. You don’t need any previous experience or special software to take this: all you need is your creativity and a laptop.

In the afternoon, campers learn how to use their doodling skills for real, by doing design projects for local nonprofits or small businesses. They will learn how to make professional posters and art that people want to pay for, and they will ultimately design posters and ads for real organizations with good causes. Our students' work has been used in ads and online Instagrams posts by the Special Olympics, Martha's Kitchen, and local shelters.

In the morning, campers learn all about food: how to make it, how to make it safely, and how to use it for good! You’ll learn about food safety, meet new friends, and cook some (oven-less) recipes from all 6 inhabited continents. Everything you cook will be easy to make and suitable for after-school cooking: including “easy pizza”, Japanese Onigiri (Rice Balls), and other finger-foods from Africa, Asia, and South America. During camp, you and your friends will play fun cooking games, learn about math through the process of measurement, and donate food you make to local charities in order to give back to others. At the end of camp, you'll have a whole recipe book you can use to impress friends and family at home!

Company Bio: VineyardAppCamp was built on the belief that early acts of entrepreneurship and understanding of technology pay dividends down the road. All students have great app and website ideas; with mentorship to unlock their ideas, they can begin their journey. Through building their own app, students learn to think critically about a problem and identify ways to solve problems through technology. On top of our unique educational philosophy, we build 21st century, distributed-computing driven educational software to create an engaging online classroom environment and help students get the most out of class. Our team consists of experienced Ivy-League coding experts– from former/current managers at large tech firms and successful startups to graduates from top universities. Every one of our instructors were chosen based on three key criteria: their passion for education, their technical know-how, and their mentorship experience. We take into account the needs of our students holistically, and we aren’t satisfied until we see that our students have successfully established their own enduring relationship with tech and entrepreneurship.
