About Hack Camp

What is Hack Camp?

Have you ever wondered how to make a website? Do you want to learn more about coding? Hack Camp is the way to go!

In this fun four-day camp, you’ll learn about the basics of website development! You'll start out with HTML, CSS, and Javascript and build your own personal website. You and your peers will learn basic programming logic and code with hands-on activities. You'll leave the camp with your own website--built from scratch!

Hack Camp will be taught by Mason Hack Club volunteers and organizers, all of whom have experience in programming and web design.

The morning session of Hack Camp will be running from 7:30am to 12pm, June 27th to June 30th.

The afternoon session of Hack Camp, which is currently full, will be running from 12:30pm to 5pm, June 27th to June 30th.

Isn't hacking bad?

For some people, the word "hack" is associated with things like breaking into bank accounts. However, that's not really hacking. When we say hack, we mean finding a creative solution to a problem (think of life hacks!) using technology--no banks involved!

What will I do?

We'll be taking you through a course where you learn to create your very own website. After that, you'll have the opportunity to split into groups and design a website to market a product! We'll be including fun, non-coding activities to keep you moving.

I don't know how to code!

Great! The curriculum we've designed puts new coders in mind. We have tutorials to walk you through getting set up, and our volunteers will be there to help you

I know how to code!

Great! Hack Camp will be a great place for you to refine your skills. If you don't know HTML, CSS, or Javascript, then this will be an opportunity to more to your portfolio.
