Code Ninjas is the world’s largest, fastest-growing kids’ coding franchise, with hundreds of international locations, including dozens across Canada. At Code Ninjas’ day camps and classes, kids learn to code while also “having a blast.” Founded in 2016, it has quickly developed into the leader in providing game-based programming that incites kids and teens to explore and develop their interest in coding, game creation, and related learning.

Why learn code through Code Ninjas? Coding has been called “the literacy of the 21st century.” Like education fundamentals, math, science, and reading, coding is a key aspect of understanding our technologically-advanced world. Code Ninjas aspires to teach the next generation not only how technology works but how to create and program products. This learning provider is spurred by the belief that now is the time for kids to learn code. What’s more, kids should begin coding as early as possible. Every child has an infinite capacity to learn, and when kids explore their curiosity, wondrous things will ensue. At Code Ninja centers, kids learn to code while building their own video games. Through these activities, they gain critical skills in problem solving, critical thinking, and STEM, in a fun, safe, and inspiring environment.

  Our goal is to teach the game of lacrosse through educational theory and skill development. We are elementary educators and former Division I lacrosse athletes. We have master’s degrees in education and 10+ years of experience in the classroom and coaching on the field. We have coached at the college, elite, high school, and youth level.
