A TYPICAL DAY AT CAMP_
> STUDENTS ARRIVE - 10 AM
Meet with their teachers, a mix of trained teachers and coding experts. Our unique teacher training equips them all to deliver the most creative and engaging sessions. Each student receives their own camp t-shirt or sweat shirt and their personal log in passport.
Every camp allows time for students to familiarise themselves with and practice touch typing - a useful skill to enable fluent coding - also really helpful in building confidence and supporting special needs.

Essential as part of their education is students learning an appropriate balance between on and off-screen time. All our tech projects include large parts that are off-screen making, constructing and drawing.

Students bring their own packed lunch, we provide water and a place to eat away from their work space and time to get some fresh air.
