Our summer camps last for 5 days, Monday to Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm (we do not offer single or 3 day camps). There is an option for early drop off (8:30am) and/or late pick up (5:30pm) each day.

As a parent, do I have to do anything? 

No, just get your child there on time and we’ll do the rest,  please send your child with a laptop, packed lunch and water bottle. All camps invite parents to see what their child has been doing.

Day Camps – parents, family and friends are invited to arrive at 4pm on Friday to see what the children have accomplished

Residential Camps – parents, family and friends are invited to arrive at 4pm on Friday to take refreshments and then will be escorted to the Labs to see what the children have accomplished. Check out is between 5pm and 5:30pm

How long do children get for lunch? 

For Day and Residential Camps lunch break is 90 minutes and comes with the option for some activities. These vary from location to location, so please check the individual location page for more details.

Do they get any breaks other than at lunchtime?

All camps have 15 minute breaks apart from FunTyper where we run on one hour cycles where we have 50 minutes’ learning and then a 10 minute break. This will give your child the chance to have a snack and use up some energy.

How academic are the courses?

We take pride in delivering courses that are both academic and most importantly, fun. No matter which class, your child will come away having learnt a lot, but not through ‘rote.’. We have top quality tutors who are great at engaging children and inspiring them. This is not about ‘playing games’ all day.

Are the fees quoted per day or for the entire camp?

The fees quoted on the website are for the entire camp duration and include VAT.

Do I need to bring any equipment?

Yes, for day camps your child will need to bring a laptop, or hire one from FunTech. For residential camps we supply all computers. Any other equipment required for our camps we will supply.

Is there a policy on mobile phones?

We do allow mobile phones, but ask that are switched off during teaching time. At other times, they can be left on.

What is your policy on behaviour?

We expect every child to behave in a considerate and respectful manner.

For any behavioural issues that may arise, we use a yellow/red card system to give a clear indication of our expectations and to promote good behaviour.

Serious behavioural offences will lead to a child receiving 'yellow card' with a discussion and correspondence with all affected students and parents. Any further behavioural offence will lead to a child receiving a 'red card' and subsequently expulsion from the course.
