Are you disappointed
by the online experience your child’s been having
this summer? Us too.
Why are they so bad?

Many Online camps over promise & under-deliver. They're just:

Confusing
As camps rush to move online, there isn’t a focus on what success means for our students.
Stressful
Online camps can’t tell whether your child is focused, meaning it’s another thing you have to do
Generic
Since everyone is moving online, the experience is similar across the board.

As a parent working from home, these camps just make your day worse. You can choose from:

Hours of boring recorded lectures
The last thing kids need is more lecturing. It’s impossible to keep their attention for that long and often bores them to sleep.
Live classes with 5+ Students
We’ve done this. It stinks. Everyone has to go through the same experience and educators get stressed because they can’t help everyone
“Self-guided” camps that you guide
Many parents have purchased at home kits or online self-guided programs only to find that they have to add another job to their list.

It’s time for an option that your kids love enough to log themselves in without your help!

Hi there! My name is Mackenzie and I've been working for Code Naturally for 2 years now. Code Naturally helped me learn how to code, but I have been teaching STEM concepts for 6 years. I love working with students on designing their own unique video games and helping their dreams become reality! My favorite projects to create are generative art (where you have the computer create art for you!) because I love how easy to customize they are. I enjoy working with students who are beginner - advanced.

Book Mackenzie

I am a junior going to the University of California San Diego in the fall to study computer science and music. I love to surf and play music. My all-time favorite game is The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask on the Nintendo 64. In Code Naturally, my favorite things to code are simulations of natural occurrences like rain or snowflakes. My preferred levels of students to tutor are beginner to intermediate but I am open to working with students that are starting to make more advanced projects.

Book Charlie

I’m a recent graduate from UC Santa Cruz with a B.S. in Computer Science. I first discovered my passion for coding when I took AP Java as a senior in high school, and ever since then I knew that coding was what I wanted to do for my career. I only wish I had started learning earlier! Besides coding, I love to exercise, spend time with friends, and go hiking/camping/anything outdoors. I hope that through Code Naturally I can further develop others’ passion and knowledge of this great field!  I prefer to tutor students who already have a fundamental understanding of the core concepts of programming so that we can work on more advanced topics.
