Think Camp

What is Think Camp?
Think Camp teaches key 21st century skills in fun and energising full day camps during school holiday periods. On Think Camp, computer work is interspersed with frequent snack breaks (three per day), outdoor games (weather permitting) and exciting competitions. Powerful thinking skills such as Design and Lean Thinking are taught throughout, using carefully designed activities that compliment computer work and give participants the tools needed to master the world of tomorrow.

What time?
We understand parents’ busy lives, and so we offer you the option of flexible drop off and pick up times. Participants can be dropped off anytime between 7h30am and 8h00am and collected between 15h00 and 15h30.

What should we bring?
Busy minds get hungry! We ask participants to bring along their favourite brain food so that they keep alert and awake. All our venues have superb tech facilities and participants will be working on Windows PCs, so there is no need to bring any additional high-tech devices.

What happens at the end of the day? 
The final discussion for the day along with certificate hand-out takes place between 15h00 and 15h10 - we invite all parents to be present for this. After certificate handout, between 15h10 and 15h30 parents are invited to come and see their incredible work done throughout the day. Please note that at Think Camp we use the Education Edition of Minecraft, all work done in this edition is not compatible with any other Minecraft edition. We regret therefore, that no worlds can be taken home.
