Who Runs Hack Camp?

Mason Hack Camp is organized by Mason Hack Club, a student-run programming club at Mason High School. These high-school students have organized numerous events, such as Mason Hack Camp 2018, CincyHacks, and Hack Cincinnati. Mason Hack Camp 2019 will be run in partnership with Cengage Learning, a company rooted in education technology. They will be hosting Hack Camp at their Mason office and will be providing volunteers! Mason Hack Camp 2019 is a Mason City Schools sponsored event. Mason Hack Club is part of Hack Club, which is an international organization that seeks to develop young talent within the realm of Computer Science.

What Do We Do At Hack Camp?

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.

Why Should I Go?

Hack Camp's organizers are truly passionate about STEM education. Our goal as leads is to expose students to as much computer science as possible. We also see results. Out of the Hack Camp 2017 students surveyed:

  • 96% would recommend Hack Camp to others.
  • 96% will continue web development and computer programming on their own because of Hack Camp.
  • 100% are planning on taking CS courses in high school, if offered.

Who Can Come?

Hack Camp 2019 is for students of Mason City Schools! Specifically, we're looking for incoming 6th graders to incoming 9th graders. If you don't meet the requirements, but are still interested, feel free to email us at masonhackclub@gmail.com and we'll see if there's a spot for you!

Do I Need to Know How to Code?

No! We know that coding can be a broad subject, and some people may be hesitant to jump in. However, Hack Camp's goal is to introduce and explain programming in an easy-to-understand way! That means that you don't need to bring any programming experience to the table—just a willingness to learn! For those of you who attended Hack Camp 2018, or for those who have experience in programming, we also have an advanced track.

What Should I Bring?

The only thing you need is a laptop & charger. Your school-issued Chromebooks will work great.

How Much is Hack Camp?

Hack Camp 2019 will be $150. We will provide snacks and drinks to you during breaks. We also have an awesome swag bag for you, including a t-shirt, water bottle, and cool laptop stickers!
