Computer Science

Turn your fascination with computers into future opportunities by learning programming basics.

Registration is open to campers from 14 to 18 years old who have just completed or are entering into grades 9–12.

Computer Science Camp introduces the fundamentals of computer programming to begin your study of computer systems. Learn the basics of programming—loops, conditional statements, functions, and more! Since computer scientists develop the processing to support various computer functions, Computer Science Camp provides a close look at how computers can be used effectively to enhance our daily lives.

To gain firsthand experience in computer science application, you’ll go behind the scenes of the Pensacola Christian College IT Department! Discover how computers control the complex systems governing the College’s operations. Each day, you’ll have opportunities to implement the skills you learn through games, coding challenges, and exciting projects.

What to Expect

At this Computer Science Camp, experienced Pensacola Christian College faculty will give group instruction. With access to 82 computers in the PCC programming labs, you’ll have many opportunities to learn and stretch your imagination.

Find out what programming is all about from Pensacola Christian College faculty and staff. Then create a program of your own that you can take home and show off to your family and friends.

See what a real work environment looks like by visiting PCC’s computer hardware, software, and networking departments.

Discover life changing truths from God’s word through daily challenges.

However you spend your free time, you’ll be spending it with your newfound friends. You can explore the Sports Center—climb the rock wall, bowl with friends, cool off in the ice-skating rink, or make a splash at the water park. You can grab a smoothie at the Common Grounds Café and just hang out.

Show Your Work

Design animation projects and create games to be displayed at the conclusion of camp!
