Parents reviews

Nir Ofek

11 years old

My son (11 years old) did 2 weeks of summer camp with Step during Aug 2018: 1 week Robotics, 1 week Game Development. The teacher and facilities were excellent, and my son learned a ton and got immersed big time in what he learned. 

Audreyanne Magri

8 years old

If your child loves spending hours watching videos on YouTube like my 8-year old, I strongly recommend the STEP YouTube and filmmaking course

Cristina Aguilar

My 12-son complete a game development summer camp course and I was amazed how much he learnt about programming in a week.

Vacations relieve children of the standard education burden. Instead they are able to use this experimental period to learn in a new modern way. Our camp curricula give children the opportunity to try a variety of courses and activities, resulting in a new found hobby or a possible future career. After all, holidays are a time of exploration - a break from the norm. Let’s put that time to good use as we discover hidden talents in your child and prepare them for the future.
