Computer Camp, Introduction to Google Suite and Coding
10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
July 17-21, M-F
In the Upper School, our students must use computers for various reasons, including the use of email and word processing for paper-writing. In addition to basic computer use, I would like to teach and equip our students with the skills they need so that they are confident and able to complete classwork. I would also like to introduce them to computer coding so that they might identify whether it interests them or not.
Together, during our Camp, we will begin with a quick review of (or introduction to!):
- Google Drive folder and file directory
- Gmail: sending and receiving emails
- Google Docs’ word processor
- Google Sheets and Slides
- Proper typing form on a “QWERTY” keyboard
- Basic computer programming concepts with drag-and-drop code blocks and the Adafruit Circuit Playground microcontroller
- Basics of C++
Our Camp will meet in the Spring Meadows Computer Lab of the southwest Upper School Building. Students must bring a laptop or pad with a qwerty keyboard.

What people say
“My son has participated in the HLS Drama Camps for two years. Each week was enjoyed and he learned to come out of his shell a bit.”
“My eighth-grade daughter has been attending HLS drama camps since their inception. For a child who refused to talk to anyone outside the family, she was challenged to come out of her shell during camp as she was given the opportunity to play various roles. Camp is a great outlet for her.”
“The highlight of the week was the performances which were amazing! The highly talented staff were able to teach students a great deal of material in order to pull off a great production in just one week!”
“These camps (through great leadership) help teach responsibility, build character, and increase confidence through the drama skills taught.”
