What happens on a typical day at HackLab Holiday Camp?

Students arrive between 8.30am and 9.00am. We start with an unplugged warm up activity to boot up our brains for the day before we get going on our projects.

At 10:30 there will be a mid-morning break with snacks and drinks provided.

Then more project work till lunch at 12:30 - students are to provide their own packed lunch.

In the afternoon break at 3pm we will play games, read comics, and generally have a rest from screen-time with another snack and juice-box.

We then go back in to the lab to work on our projects and do more fun stuff until pick up time at 5.00pm.

Is food provided?

We will provide all drinks during the day, as well as a snack in the morning and afternoon. Please make sure you pack a lunch.

Do I need to bring anything?

Some courses require headphones, some require a laptop, and it’s all detailed on the course notes. Otherwise, just you, a smile, loads of enthusiasm…oh, and your packed lunch if you are doing a full day with us.

How many people will be on the course?

20 depending on the course, with 3 instructors in the room. We like to keep the group small so we can focus on the individual needs of each student.

Do you offer any discounts?

We do have some funds available for discounted places. If you would like more information, please see the HackLab Scholarship Fund information.

How can I ensure my child will be well looked after?

The safety and welfare of your child is the most important thing to us… and having fun of course! We are all DBS checked and have a First Aid and EpiPen trained member of staff present at all times. We will only allow the child to leave with the pre-authorised pick up person who must show us ID.

Do you offer any more regular courses?

Yes, we offer our term time Saturday TechClub as well as pop up events at least once a month. Make sure you subscribe to the newsletter to be the first in the know!

I would like to run a bespoke event with you, is that possible?
