CIY.CLUB HOLIDAY CAMPS
At our CIY one-day school holiday sessions, children can come and turn their imaginations into technological reality with learning at all ability levels.
Sign-up for one of our school holiday camps to get a taste of what technology is all about. If you already know you love technology, jump straight into our after-school clubs. Try out a CIY.Club school holiday camp to get an exciting snapshot of our CIY.Club. When you have discovered coding with our camps, move on to an after-school CIY.Club.
Camps are a one-day (6 hour) session in the school holidays for young technology enthusiasts. We run a selection of one-day camps in various tech skills including: game coding, 3D printing and design, electronics, website design and Minecraft.

In a world full of electronic devices, we introduce students to real world, hands on electronic design. They design, create and build projects to inspire them to understand the connection between design, function and production. They combine the hardware they build with software and coding that they write to make some truly fantastic projects, providing inspiration and skills to shape their future. Ages 7 – 17.

You can take your website home and continue to develop it. Ages 7 – 17.
MINECRAFT: TEAM PLAY CAMP
This fun and unique full-day camp utilises the popular game Minecraft as a tool for learning. Join us within our custom-built CIY world, designed to provide a safe, controlled environment where children will participate in engaging hands-on challenges that require engineering, planning, teamwork, communication, problem solving and creative thinking.
Our CIY.Club Coaches will use each challenge activity as an opportunity to explore how to act responsibly on an online platform, identify and reward examples of teamwork, discuss conflict resolution techniques and also expose them to topics within the digital technologies landscape. This will set them up with the important skills required to continue further into coding and digital creation in the future. Ages 8-17.
