Summer Academy 2015 | Registration

Want to get involved, Volunteer! - Sign-up Here!

CoderDojoCville has a new look this summer. We’ll be using the exciting spaces in and around the Albemarle High School Library in a more ‘freely organized’ way, allowing kids to develop at their own pace, and allowing them to more easily find peer mentors.

CoderDojo Participants

When CoderDojo participants arrive this summer they’ll be able to move toward the area and emphasis best for themselves: the Sampler week, the HTML week, the Micro-Computer week, the Fabrication week, or our Advanced Programming group. But if their needs change, they can easily switch. CoderDojo is open to students in grades K-12 but children under age 7 will need to have parents on hand.

Three kinds of tickets are available for each of our 4-day sessions:


Monday - Thursday, July 6-9 9:00 am - Noon (Click here for Tickets)

Monday - Thursday, July 6-9 1:00 pm - 4 pm (Click here for Tickets)

Monday - Thursday, July 13-16 9:00 am - Noon (Click here for Tickets)

Monday - Thursday, July 13-16 1:00 pm - 4 pm (Click here for Tickets)

General Tickets are available to Albemarle County Public School students only.

Volunteer Priority Tickets are available to students whose parents volunteer to attend with them and help support the activities for all children in attendance.

Non-Resident Tickets are for students who do not attend an ACPS school. These are priced at $100.00 per session, which helps us defray the substantial costs of running this event.

Students will be limited to signing up for one 4-day session this year, and additional registrations will be cancelled.

CoderDojo is a movement orientated around running free not-for-profit coding clubs and regular sessions for young people.

At a CoderDojo, young people learn how to code, develop websites, apps, programs, games and more. Dojos are set up, run by and taught by volunteers. Dojos organize tours of technology companies, bring in guest speakers to talk about their career and what they do, and organize events. In addition to learning to code, members meet like minded people, show off what they've been working on and so on. CoderDojo makes development and learning to code a fun, sociable, cooperative experience. CoderDojo also puts a strong emphasis on open source and free software, and has a strong network of members and volunteers globally.
