FAQ

How much does the camp cost?

Nothing! All of the materials your child will need will be provided by us.

What if I sign my child up for a class that is too advanced/easy?

No worries, if your child feels that the course is too easy/difficult, we will allow them to change courses!

What would my child's day look like?

Down below we have outlined what our current schedule will look like. Do note, that this is subject to change based on how much material we cover.

My child does not attend North Allegheny. Can he/she still participate?

Yes! We have opened Steel City Codes to the greater Pittsburgh Area.

What materials do I need to bring?

Nothing! Well, except a lunch(unless told otherwise) and a curious mind!

What if I want to carpool with another family?

That's perfectly fine. Just have the parent that drops them off indicate on the sign-in sheet who is picking your children up.
