October Tech Camp

Give your kids the tech skills for life this half term.


WHAT IS A TECH CAMP?

Our 5-day intensive tech camp is packed with fun activities, challenges, and workshops, so you can build websites, mobile applications, games and virtual reality.

Aimed at 6 to 18-year olds, we will push you to develop essential soft skills like teamwork, problem solving, presentation and communication skills, as well as logical and computational thinking abilities.
Our team of highly experienced instructors are passionate about giving you an advantage in a digital era where technology skills are highly in demand. The camps run at our centres in Milton Keynes, Bedford, London and Northampton.

We currently offer Scratch, Python, Web and Mobile App development and Robotics.

The camps start at 10AM and finish at 4PM each day.
