UTG and Elevate have partnered up for another year to offer a coding/ultimate frisbee camp!
Campers will spend half their day
creating the artwork and code for their own video game and the other half
outside learning and playing ultimate frisbee.
The Ultimate Frisbee portion of camp will focus on teaching athletes the FUNdamentals of Ultimate Frisbee including throwing, catching, and cutting, all through engaging small-sided games. No previous experience of Ultimate is necessary to enjoy the program. Elevate is an award-winning program loved and trusted by 1000+ parents and their kids. Their programs have a daily value (teamwork, effort, friendship, positive self-talk, fun), and with their high energy coaches, your athletes are guaranteed to have fun in a safe way!
During coding, students will use PixelPad to create the code and artwork for their very own video game. Students will learn the fundamentals of the coding language Python. Over the week they will cover loops, variables, if-statements, orienting objects in 2-D space, and much more. By the end of the week they will have their own video game.
