August coding and tech camps in London and UK

Our August summer camps run in multiple locations across London, plus Chester, Maidenhead, Milton Keynes, Oxford, Tonbridge, and Reading.

Here’s just a short selection of what’s possible. You can view all of our summer tech camps on our main website.

#1: Minecraft with Mods – Ages 7 to 10

If your child loves video gaming and in particular the hugely popular Minecraft, then this is the ideal choice to keep them occupied over the August school holidays.

In this August summer tech camp, your child will uncover the secrets of Minecraft, and then move onto modifying the game by developing their own blocks, items, creatures and even the Minecraft landscapes themselves.

If your child is a little older and more advanced then you might be interested in our Minecraft Redstone camp for ages 9 to 12.

#7: Cyber Security: Hackathon – Ages 11 to 16

This is the newest August summer camp for teens on the FunTech roster of holiday courses, including two hot topics; cyber security and hacking.

There is a growing demand for cyber security experts in the UK. This tech summer camp will offer ethical hacking classes that could set your teenager on the route to a very interesting career.
