Residential Camps

Join students from around the world
for the premier engineering camp

Explore our full range of courses at our flagship Winchester venue, Sparsholt College which run throughout August and combine our fun tech courses with all sorts of other exciting activities.  Many of our campers come from the UK but we typically have students from over a dozen countries, all united by a love of technology. 

Residential campers arrive on Sunday afternoon and leave on Friday afternoon.  Join us for a single week-long course, or come for multiple weeks-long courses with the option to experience trips out on the 'bridge weekends'.

Accommodation is in single rooms with en-suite bathrooms and residential campers have many additional activity sessions, including engineering challenges, and daily choices of tech activities.  Parents receive daily emailed updates and can access the extensive photo library.

Daily Schedule

On a normal day campers will wake around 8:00am, followed by breakfast, before being joined by the daytime campers at 9:00am, ready to start sessions for 9:30am.

Typically there are four sessions with two breaks and an hour-long lunch break, with the daytime courses finishing at 5:30pm. Residential campers then have dinner and take part in a wide range of our exciting evening activities, before having some relaxation time before bed.

Campers select their own activities which include both technical and non-technical options, including games of laser tag, 'reverse engineering', computer gaming sessions, 'electronic art', 'chocolate moulding', and much more.

Staying multiple weeks?
Join for a bridge weekend

For those campers staying for two weeks there is a separate "Bridging Weekend" option available which covers food, accommodation and activities from Friday night until Sunday afternoon (when they will be joined by the new campers). We have a variety of activities over the weekend, including gaming sessions, laser tag, a movie night, and an off-campus trip which changes each camp.  Previous options have included fossil-hunting on the Jurassic coast, visiting Portsmouth Historic Docks, science museums, theme parks, and outdoor activity centres.
