If you’ve been following our homeschooling journey this year, you’d know that we are intentionally implementing a more interest-led type of learning for our kids. So before we started the school year, I asked my son, Ziggy, what he’s interested in learning. Some of the things he mentioned were robotics, coding, and programming.

Those were definitely interesting topics but neither my hubby nor I were capable of teaching them, so I researched for schools that offered those services instead. That’s how I discovered Manila Coding Camp.

What is Manila Coding Camp?

Manila Coding Camp is a digital learning center that offers a variety of courses including:

  • Game Development
  • Programming
  • Robotics
  • Web Design
  • Mobile Application
  • App Development
  • and more!

They have courses for adults and kids alike, from beginner to professional. Best of all, you can learn them from the comfort of your own home. You can view their complete list of courses here.

A few months ago, Ziggy got to try their Robotics 1 course. It was supposed to be a group class but he ended up getting it solo that time and so he got one-on-one instruction.

In the 5-day class, he was able to learn a lot about the basics of coding using Arduino. He really enjoyed it and looked forward to each class, so I promised him I’d make sure he gets to take another class from Manila Coding Class before the school year ends.

Jr. Programming 1 Course

As promised, I was able to secure another class for Ziggy at Manila Coding Camp. This time though, he wanted to take the Jr. Programming 1 Course because he wants to eventually learn to create his own games.

This camp provides an introduction to computer science using Scratch, a programming language developed by MIT. The course will allow students to develop logic skills, in preparation for more advanced programming languages.

The Jr. Programming 1 course is meant for kids ages 5 – 10 years old, although they can also accept those who are a bit older. The course, which costs Php 5,000.00, will be for 3 days at 1 hour per day. The class that Ziggy will be joining will be on December 8, 10 and 12 (T, TH, S) from 4:00 – 5:00 pm. The thing is though, he doesn’t have have other classmates yet.

The Giveaway!

Ziggy needs classmates to join him in the upcoming Jr. Programming 1 course and it could be your kid!

Manila Coding Camp has offered to sponsor a giveaway for my followers. They will be giving 2 kids access to the Jr. Programming 1 course, specifically to join Ziggy on next week’s classes. Ain’t that awesome?!

Here are the guidelines:

  1. Your child must be 5 – 10 years old. They can accept up to 12-year-olds though.

If your child doesn’t qualify with the above guidelines, please don’t join and give chance to others. 🙂

  1. Rio would like to try this coding program. It’s more exciting because he will be taking the lessons with Ziggy.

    1. Thanks for joining, Nadia! 🙂 Good luck to you and Rio! It would definitely be exciting for them to see each other again even if it’s just online. 🙂

    2. Thanks for joining, Nadia! It will definitely be exciting for them to see each other again even it’s just online. Good luck to you and Rio! 🙂

  2. This is great! My son loves playing around in Scratch and he would like to make his own game someday, too. He would also love to spend some time with some kids as he is an only child and hadn’t seen another kid for a long time.

    Thanks for this opportunity!

    1. You’re welcome, Jen. Thanks for joining. Good luck to you and your son! 🙂

  3. My 9yr old daughter recently showed interest in programming and this would really help in finding out whether she has a knack for it 🙂 hoping we’ll win! Thanks for the opportunity, mommyplannerista!♥️

  4. Hi, mommy! May we know who won the giveaway? Thanks! 🙂

    1. Hi! The blog winner was announced on my FB page. It was Nadia de Leon. If you joined through IG, I announced the IG winner there. It was @crochetinglawyer.

  5. Hi! I came across your blog about 6 months ago when I was researching for summer class for my son. Unfortunately we didn’t have the same experience that you had in Manila Coding Camp. My son completed the Minecraft game development however upon receiving the so called Certificate, I was heartbroken. In the certificate of completion, it stated that my son “lacks interest in the lessons and activities and would not comply to instructions”. This so-called certificate has my son’s name, signed by the co-founder and teacher. Instead of putting this into a feedback, they opted to put in “certificate”

    1. Oh my! That’s so sad to hear, Rose. That’s definitely not okay. Giving feedback is great and can be helpful but how they did it is unacceptable. Did you approach them about this?
