Campers will spend half their day exploring the fundamentals of coding and building with ROBLOX.  ROBLOX is a safe interactive gaming platform that allows campers to imagine, create, and code in an immersive 3d gaming world. Our tool provides campers with everything they need to create their own game from scratch.  We use a drag-and-drop blocks coding library to create our games.  Best of all, ROBLOX is a free to download.

Campers will spend the other half of the day engaged in a variety of athletic activities. We offer dozens of multi-sports madness games like Treasure Island, Hand Hockey, Illinois Jones, Countdown Dodgeball, Battleship, Capture the Flag and soccer. These activities ensure that campers learn how to communicate with each other and work as a team to accomplish their goals.

Our camps will run each day from 8:30am-4:00pm.  We ask that each camper bring their own lunch. Please remember to exclude any foods that contain any nuts.

Legacy Sports activities will take place at The Tennis and Fitness Center located at 301 West Lake Street. Code Play Learn's activities will take place across the street at 132 N. Ridgeland Avenue Oak Park IL 60302. Campers will be walked between locations by staff from Legacy Sports. Space is limited to the first 15 campers.
