Computer Science Summer Camp (NJ)
Coding Summer Camps for Teens in NJ
All sessions are full. Contact us to be added to the waiting list.
Note: This course is not currently being offered this year. However, students interested in learning more about computer science should consider NextGen Bootcamp’s Computer Science Summer Certificate Program, our Python Data Science Summer Program Live Online or our Java Programming Summer Program.
This 4-week course is jam-packed with valuable skills and techniques used by software developers in the field today. The program is divided into two parts, with each part introducing a collection of activities and projects that will ensure students are actively engaged and coding throughout each day!
Students learn Java, a high-level programming language that is made up of countless transferrable skills and concepts. Topics that we'll cover include object-oriented programming and recursion.
Students learn how to write code Python. The Python language is rooted in mathematical computation, which enables students to also learn the principals of data science and how to visualize and analyze complex data sets.
Prerequisites: This summer program is for ages 13-19. There are no prerequisites to attend, but students must be comfortable with basic computer skills and have a desire to learn at an advanced level.
Scheduling Note: Class will not be held on July 4th and 5th.
If you prefer to pay your tuition over time, we have payment options to meet your needs. Finance your education through an installment plan. We also assist with documentation should your employer offer tuition reimbursement.
If you’re a company enrolling your employees, choose Corporate Invoice at checkout.
If you’re an employee seeking to have your tuition reimbursed by your company, email us for an invoice to submit to your employer for approval.
There are no extra fees or taxes for our courses. The price you see on this page is the maximum you’ll pay us.
However, if you plan to take the course live online, you may need to obtain required software. We’ll help you get set up with a free trial of paid software prior to the class. Most of our coding classes utilize freely-available open-source software. For most of our design and motion graphics courses, we will help you get set up with a free trial of Adobe Creative Cloud. If you attend the course in-person, we will have a computer already set up for you with all of the required software for no additional cost.
This program is a discounted package of classes that is 15–25% off the individual class prices, so additional discounts do not apply.
Became proficient in Java programming and computer science topics and knew nothing before. Would recommend!
Attend this certificate program in-person in NJ or Live Online via Zoom. Engage with expert instructors, ask questions, and get feedback on your exercises and projects. Switch between live-online and in-person as needed, even after the course has started.
Unlike other providers, these are not mass open-enrollment classes. At NextGen Bootcamp, you’ll learn in small groups (typically 8-15 students) and receive personalized attention.
Get face-to-face interaction with an instructor and other students when you learn at our NYC campus. Courses are hands-on with a computer and software provided.
Get the same interactivity and access to the instructor as in-person students. There are no extra fees and we’ll work with you to ensure your remote setup is perfect.
Upon completion of this course, you’ll receive an official certificate testifying to your mastery of the curriculum. We’ll send you a link where you can download your certificate, share it online with your friends, post it to your professional network on LinkedIn, and view all your earned certificates. Congratulations on your achievement!
You can also access recordings of each session in your student portal within one business day of the session’s end. Recordings are available for one month after the session.
Unit 1 50 Hours
Unit 2 50 Hours
Students must be comfortable using a computer. No other prior knowledge is required.

Sorry, but this training is not available online. However, some individual courses in this certificate program may be available online. Contact us if you would like to take this program remotely.
You have some options:
This certificate class was NextGen’s top-selling and reviewed class last summer. This course will prepare students for the world of technology by teaching them the two most important language in coding today, Java and Python! For example, Java and Python are basically the coding language version of English and Spanish. This course will be challenging but students will reap the benefits of these skills for years to come. We recommend this course to students because of 5 unique reasons!
Master 2 Languages in 4 weeks: Since this course teaches in an immersive style over a short period of time, students are able to grasp concepts faster and learn languages quicker. This allows students to be a beginner in Python or Java and fluent two weeks later. Our class approach is hands-on, active learning with minimal lectures. This allows students to become better programmers faster. Additionally, knowing both of these languages and having them on your resume shows colleges and the world that you understand the world of technology and the main languages it uses.
Learn Data Science & OOP: These are the last set of skills taught in the Python and Java class respectively. Data science is the number one emerging field in Python and is an important skill in any type of job today. We live in a world surrounded by data and data science is the field that teaches students how to collect, analyze, and visualize the data. For example, when Netflix recommends a type of show this is data science at work. At Netflix, they employ programmers to analyze your show data and create a program that recommends a show to you! The next topic you will learn is OOP. This stands for Object-Oriented Programming which is a way of programming involving objects over actions. The purpose of this is structure programs for re-usability, this is especially important when you are working with other programmers.
Learn How to Think Algorithmically: The languages taught in this course have a fair bit of computational and conditional logic. Certain topics such as loops require the brain to think in an alternate way then it’s used to. After learning these topics for a couple of weeks, students are able to train their brain to think in step by step processes. This thinking is the most important skill in programming and in life. Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and Ray Dalio all have said that learning to think algorithmically is the most important skill in today’s economy.
Prepare for University: Both of these languages are taught on a university level. Taking this course will allow students to place out of courses in college or get a head start! Additionally, the Java half of the program will allow students to prepare for their AP course in their high school or skip the course and take the test on its own!
Our Software Engineering Immersive course is designed mainly for high-school students but college students are welcomed as well! There is no math or coding pre-requisite for this course.
This course is a great introductory to the world of programming and computer science. Anyone who is interested in business, technology, entrepreneurship, journalism, and many other different jobs. This is also a great program for younger students since these are both introductory courses that can benefit their academic future. This program runs for the first 4.5 weeks of the summer is divided into two sections: Python and Java.
The first half of this course is focused on teaching Java and computer science principles. This course will run students through the Java language from its syntax to OOP. Please check out the bottom of the Java Summer Course page for more detail!
The second half of the course will focus mainly on programming using Python. This course will cover Python programming principles as well as Python and its use in data science. Please check out the bottom of the Python Summer Course page for more detail!
