Algorithmics Ninja Coding Camp

Computer science and algorithmic thinking are important, but also valuable are physical play and getting away from the screen. Enter Brooklyn Zoo NY, a parkour and ninja warrior training facility. Campers will spend several hours each day in the gym learning the basics of parkour, tumbling, and trampoline; playing games; and competing on Ninja Warrior-style obstacle courses.

Camp is for ages 8-12. Laptops are provided. No coding skills are required. Discounts are available for siblings and multiple bookings. Visit the website for pricing and more information.
