Summer Camp 2023
Swift is a powerful programming language for iOS development. Writing Swift code is interactive and fun. It can be a useful educational tool helping students create Apps, explore code and share their creations. Ivy Seed campers will learn how to use the Swift 4 by undertaking interactive projects. They will develop their own Apps by the end of the camp.

The Swift language was designed to be accessible enough to be your very first programming language. It was designed to be easy to learn, yet powerful enough for professional developers. Students who learn Swift now will continue to be able to apply the skills they have learned when they become more advanced programmers because Swift has the capabilities for more advanced programming. Since Swift was launched by Apple Inc. in 2014, it has been one of the most popular programming languages and the primary language for building iOS Apps. Because iOS Apps are important and critical to the tech industry, Swift programmers are incredibly in-demand.

A Typical Day Includes
5 Hrs 15 Mins
Students will learn programming skills from instructors, and then be able to explore and practice these new tech skills on their own and in collaboration with their peers.
Activities & Socializing
Students will participate in indoor and outdoor STEM activities. These activities enable students to make new friends and experience campus life at top universities.
Each student will have time to focus on his/her personal projects and work one-on-one with the instructor to gain the most out of the program.
Doing STEM activities is a fun and interactive way for students to get to know their peers and instructors while also learning important computer science concepts. Students will play games which are based on the ideas of binary numbers, computer logic, and image representation, just to name a few.
