Why Tech Camp?

  • We are the longest-running Tech Camp in the UK
  • We run only the highest-quality courses not available anywhere else
  • Most courses include take-home equipment to continue the learning
  • We have a strict 1:8 staff:student ratio
  • Campers get to meet tutors who are studying at UK's leading institutions
  • All staff are DBS checked and chosen because of their specialist knowledge
  • We are OFSTED registered and accept childcare vouchers

Campers choose one course (see options at bottom of page) that they complete that runs over either a single day or a whole week.  Most courses are available over all weeks.  The week-long courses are run from Monday to Friday from 9:30am until 4:30pm and the day-long courses have the same start and end times.  There is a supervised lunch break with outdoor activities available.  Campers bring their own packed lunch to these events.

 
Tech Camp Senior Raspberry Pi
 
Unless otherwise stated, all courses are open (ages 9-17).  We have multiple tutors assisting at each course so are able to split students into several groups to differentiate when faced with a large age or ability range.
We normally allow an age leeway on courses of a few months, so would allow someone who is almost 13 at the time of the event to register for a 13-17 course but we reserve the right to move students between courses if, for example, it becomes apparent that a student does not have the prerequisite skills or emotional maturity to complete a 13+ course with older students.  For us to consider having a 12 year old register for a 13+ course in the summer holidays however they MUST be turning 13 before the end of the year.
