Summer Residential Camps In English Countryside
The UK’s number one ranked girls 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.
There are seven Fire Tech camps available at Wycombe Abbey. Camps are run by specialist tutors who have been trained at UK’s leading Universities.

ABOUT THE SCHOOL
Wycombe Abbey is equipped with superb facilities including picturesque historic buildings, up-to-date classrooms and extensive greenery. Recreational activities and games are structured into the week’s intensive programme, giving campers plenty of opportunities to enjoy themselves both at, and away from, the computer screen.
Included in the camp fee: all food and accommodation, with students able to take advantage of the excellent facilities that are used by term-time boarding school pupils.
GETTING THERE – TRAVEL INFORMATION
The school is conveniently located in the Buckinghamshire countryside, a short drive from both Heathrow Airport and London (we can arrange airport transfers).
Wycombe Abbey is located in High Wycombe, just off Junction 4 of the M40 which runs between London and Oxford. London, the M25 and Heathrow Airport are all within easy driving distance.
The school is a 25 minute drive from Heathrow Airport and we can arrange airport transfers to collect your child and bring them to camp. We will collect travel details and organise from all bookers ahead of the camp.
Wycombe Abbey is less than half a mile from High Wycombe train station. There are frequent direct trains to and from London (Marylebone Station) and, from Spring 2016, direct trains running to Oxford city centre (they currently stop at Oxford Parkway).
We can arrange airport transfers from Heathrow for £50 round trip.
Residential camps at Wycombe Abbey run from Sunday evening until Saturday morning. The timetable is jampacked with intensive activities, learning challenges and project work, alongside structured recreational activities such as sports, games and barbecues. There is also a short period of free time for campers between the end of the afternoon classroom activities and dinner. Campers will also enjoy a day away from the computers with a sightseeing trip to London, where they will visit some of the most famous landmarks of the city.
WHAT TO BRING
Campers need to bring their own laptop to Wycombe Abbey camps – any model (Mac or PC) from the last four years will be suitable – and students will need to know the admin log-in details in order to install necessary software. All other materials and technical equipment are included in the price.
Meals are provided on-site every day and include vegetarian options. When booking, please make sure we are aware of any dietary requirements (there is a field to fill out in the booking process).
You will receive a welcome email a few weeks before the camp with more details about what to pack!
