Most of the Boot Camps are 5 days each (although there are some 2 day options), and you will have the opportunity to book mornings, afternoons or book both for full days.

As always, every session will have the chance to game on our equipment, socialise as a community, play and learn together via GamEducation.

To book please press the RSVP button on this page. 

*If you wish for your child/children to attend full days over the week, ensure to book both the morning and afternoon sessions. If any child/young person is booked for full days, an opportunity will be given to them to bring and have their lunch, or you can sign a permission form for them to leave the premises to go to the local shops.

**Let us know in the comments of booking if you wish for your child/young person to build, buy, and take home their own PC. Starting prices are £400* but we can build to your/their specification, allowing them to design and choose their own hardware. We are able to get parts at wholesale price, and as they will be building themselves, there will be no labour costs. This will be invoiced separately and will need to be paid before parts are bought.

***It is not mandatory to attend both Part 1 and Part 2 of the boot camps, as they will complement each other but can be attended either week.
