Summer camps have been the saviour of the working parent for many years. Now FunTech has taken the concept and adapted it for the 21st century. Embracing all the benefits of traditional camps – a chance to tackle new activities, make friends and develop independence – FunTech adds a whole new dimension, offering young digital natives the opportunity to expand and learn new tech skills.
The company’s cutting-edge tech camps are aimed at the next generation of coders, engineers and game designers. Kids can expect a fun-packed week that’s also a brilliant learning experience, with hands-on exercises, challenges and the odd competition or two. They can try their hand at a huge range of activities, from Lego robotics, Minecraft and game design, to 3D modelling, coding and touch typing. It’s a winning formula, according to nine-year-old Kamran: “I loved every single bit. Nothing could be better, not even football, cricket or baseball! One of the best weeks in my life.”
Parents will be delighted to learn that FunTech is Ofsted registered. Activities follow a bespoke curriculum and take place in a structured learning environment (but one that’s light years away from traditional classrooms). Sessions are led by experienced tech tutors and the pupil to teacher ration is 8:1. It’s the ideal environment to teach skills that will last way beyond the summer holidays.
“My child couldn’t wait to go back to camp every morning; he had so much fun and learnt so much. The tutor Chris was amazing and he kept the kids engaged throughout,” says one satisfied parent. “I would definitely recommend if your child is into computers.”
The week-long FunTech camps start at 8:30am or 9am and finish at 5pm or 5:30pm to make life easier for working parents.
Camps are held at the following locations:
Barbican, Canary Wharf, Finchley Road, Hampstead, Northwood, Richmond, South Kensington, St. Albans, Westminster and Watford.
Plus additional locations across the UK: Maidenhead, Reading and Tonbridge
