Possibly, but we go to great lengths to put all of our information on our website.  Technology changes so quickly that are courses are always being updated, so we find it best to keep the latest information on this website.

Sure - just drop us an email at the end of the event and we'll create one for you and email it through so you can print it yourself.

At most of our non-residential venues, campers bring their own lunches.  At Abingdon and Winchester, food is provided and we can cater for pretty much any diet, allergy or religious requirement, but do send us an email if you want to check.

Our student to tutor ratio is never higher than 8:1 and can average 6:1.  There is always a junior and senior version of each "open age" course and some courses will be open to two blocks of 8 students.  Whilst two groups may work in the same room - each group will have their own tutor.  large computer suites or DT rooms at our venues lend themselves to two small groups using the space.

Our residential weekly camps are only available at Sparsholt College, Winchester, where you can also attend as a day student.

Our non-residential weekly camps are also available at Abingdon, Birmingham, Edinburgh, London, and Reading.  Click the venue links to see what courses and dates are available at each venue.

Please see the relevant Parents' Guide for in depth information about the running of our camps.  There is also a daily technical summary on the relevant page for each course.

We pride ourselves on building skills and knowledge through practical projects, and all our courses involve taking things home – from a functioning 3D printer to a new computer game. There is often access to follow-up activities and on-line links too! Please see the individual course pages for details on exactly what campers take home after each course.

You can log-in here using the email and password you registered with.  If you have forgotten your password then you can easily reset this.

We are generally happy to allow juniors to undertake the senior course as long as the tutor is happy after assessment on the first day, or if this has been discussed with the Tech Team in advance.  If you wish to discuss this further then do please contact the office.

We are an OFSTED-registered childcare provider.  Further information about the OFSTED registration system can be found on their website

Our OFSTED registration number for other non-residential Tech Camp venues is EY489806

If campers are doing the same course and are of a similar age then they can be in the same group.  Simply note this under "other info" when you make a booking. 

If you have already made a booking, then log in and add this information to your booking under "other info".  If you need help, then contact the office who will be able to add this for you.

We can usually help with spares and technical advice.  Please contact us with what you need or what has broken - or call to talk through a technical issue and one of the team will help.

You can easily add yourself by simply inputting your email here or email the office giving us permission to add you to our list.  We only usually send out monthly newsletters and you can easily unsubscribe at any time.  We never pass you information on to a third party.

Yes you can - once we have allocated tutors which usually happens a few weeks before camp.  You can contact the office to find out.  Make sure you are also on our mailing list and follow us on social media as we often run "meet the tutor" features.

Many of our tutors work privately with students - especially if they get on well at camp.  If you contact the office with the details, then we will circulate this to our tutors and they will contact you directly if they are interested.

Parents or carers are not allowed to stay on site at any of our venues after registration.

For non-residential campers there is the opportunity each day to speak to staff and daily updates are sent out for residential campers. There is the opportunity for all parents and carers to see what the campers have been up to on the Friday of the course, from 3.15pm.

Parents of some overseas students choose to stay in Winchester for the duration of the course as Sparsholt College is easily accessible by bus or taxi from the Town Centre, which is a cultural and historic city.

Campers have used their experience at Tech Camp as part of the "residential" element, or as part of the "acquiring a new skill" element of a Duke of Edinburgh award.  It helps if we know this in advance so we can ensure that the Tutor/Manager complete the documentation required at the end of the course before the camper leaves.

Please contact us if you wish to use your Tech Camp course as part of a Duke of Edinburgh submission.

Our Easter camp is shorter to fit in with the Easter holiday weekend, finishing on the Thursday before Good Friday.  We only run our brand new courses for the season at Easter and places are restricted.  It gets booked early as many of our "serial campers" particularly like this camp where they are the first to try out our new offerings!

The course content covered at Easter is the same as the course in the summer - but concentrated into 4 slightly longer days.  The shorter camp is also reflected in the lower cost of Easter courses - but as usual everything is taken home at the end of camp.
