Summer programming camps can be very hit and miss. Some are well organized, others aren’t. Some have teach useful material, others go for what looks flashy (some camps even use kids programming environments that cost hundreds of dollars, even though the student isn’t likely to have access to it at home). Even within the same camp of dozens of students, some are likely to enjoy it and others to dislike it.
Breakout Mentors is built around several principles to avoid these problems. 1-on-1 mentoring let’s us match the material to each student’s interest and ability. Longer-term focus let’s us balance learning and results. But with so many students attending these camps, there is much we can learn from their experiences. We’d love to hear what you like and dislike about programming summer camps so that we can make our mentoring even better.
