Library

The Camden County Library system is offering a “Coding Camp” for tweens and teens at three of its branches using program called Scratch from MIT.

Tweens and teens, ages 11–16, are invited to sign up for and attend a week-long Coding Camp at three possible branch locations of the Camden County Library System this summer.

Participants will have the chance learn basic programming skills using Scratch developed by MIT. Work will involve programming games, animations and more that can be shared online.

Those registered for the camp will need to attend all sessions as each class builds on the previous one at the following locations and times:

Haddon Township on Monday, June 27 through Friday, July 1, from 2 to 4 p.m.

Voorhees on Monday, July 25 through Friday, July 29, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Nilsa I. Cruz-Perez Downtown Branch from Monday, Aug. 1 through Friday, Aug. 5, from 2 to 4 p.m.

In addition to the camp, the Voorhees branch of the library will hold individual Scratch Programming sessions, based on the MIT program, Tuesdays June 28, July 19 and Aug. 30, 11 a.m. to 12 noon.

Registration for any of the programs is available by calling the local branch or online at www.camdencountylibrary.org/events .
