I'm heading into high school and I always like to be ahead of everyone in the class, ESPECIALLY when it comes to computers. I enjoy learning about Java and I was wondering if some summer tutoring or camps would help me prepare for classes to come. I've been teaching myself for about 2 weeks now (just learning variables and integers) I really want to get good, I think this is what I want to do when I am older.

Hi and welcome to the JavaRanch.

That is a great attitude. You could take a course however I've learned more from books then from courses. I prefer books and tutorials as they usually cover more then courses. Of course this may be totally different for you. The only way to learn how to program is to code, code and code some more. Reading and attending classes help but in the end you need to practise it.
