DETAILS


Surf and Turf camps offer kids aged 8-13, time to enjoy sport and get creative online, learning to create online games and apps for Facebook, smartphones and the web. As well as that, we want to pump oxygen to the brain - so we schedule regular breaks for team building games and outdoor challenges. We are preparing a programme for 13-16 year olds. They will follow an enterprise and tech curriculum, encouraging ideas flow, team work and preparing for a Dragons Den pitch. They will learn to create solutions to the problems they care about using technology.  Let us know if you are interested in this option!

Creative Inspiring Technology


These programmes are designed to put technology into children’s hands, give them the skills and environment to build something amazing. Rather than passively consuming games and technology made by others, it empowers them to create their own.

OUR MODEL AND OUR TEAM


This is an enterprise with social purpose. We work with digital apprentices and trainee teachers who are passionate about technology. We also welcome experienced volunteer teachers, STEM and technology ambassadors who want to give something back and explore new and creative ways of stretching horizons. (Rest assured all staff members are DBS checked and safeguarding policies applied)
We invite entrepreneurs and scientists to inspire the kids.  Participants may have a chance to get started learning HTML/CSS and even JavaScript during the week, building a simple website to showcase their work, and blogging about their camp experience. Parents are invited to see the final projects on the last afternoon at the Grand Finale

VENUES

We are always on the lookout for great venues. Our first camp was set on the amazing campus of St Mary's University, with world class sports science facilities and strong links with the National Physical Laboratory; kids had the chance to get to know the university campus, meet student ambassadors and see the digital learning resources on offer.
