Summer Residential Camps In English Countryside

The UK’s number one ranked independent boarding school – Wycombe Abbey – hosts our residential summer camps. Children and teenagers aged 12-17 explore the inner workings of computer science and digital technology by learning to code in Python, creating original games using code,  explore graphic design using the Adobe Creative Cloud suite, and learning how to set up blogs and YouTube channels!  This is more than a summer school, it is a chance for students to find a community of like-minded students interested in creating with cutting-edge, tech-enabled methods.

Children and teens learn, socialise and build together in an inspiring environment, which has been engineered with young people – from both the UK and around the world – and their educational needs in mind.  Last year students came from Dubai, Jordan, India, Germany, Italy, France, China, and more. Courses are run in English, offering a unique opportunity for students from further afield to use English-language skills in an innovative tech-oriented environment. Download our 2020 brochure
