  • “The LocoRobo Camp was an excellent experience for my son and daughter. Cole already had some coding experience, and the camp advanced his skills to a new level. Eve had no experience with coding. After one of the classes, she rattled off two lines of code during our conversation. I don't think she even knew she memorized the code until she said it.”
