Single day


TiP camps are a perfect cure for holiday boredom. Running from 9:00 – 16:00 the day is full of a variety of STEM based activities all based on the chosen theme. The day starts at 9:00 as children are dropped off, meet and greet with the session leader and get to know their fellow camp mates over a small starter activity. We usually spend the first few minutes of the day getting to know the children and introducing the topic of the day before getting stuck in with a morning full of exciting activities! Activities could be anything from diving for organs with our mannequin friend Mystie, building rockets from recycled materials or planning, filming and staring in your own stop motion video! At 12:00 we break for an hour to enjoy our packed lunches, play outside in the fresh air or relax over a book. After lunch we build, code, craft and experiment our way through the afternoon making sure to stop for brain food midway through. The day usually ends with a TiP Trip Down Memory Lane to encourage recall learning and the presentation of certificates before collection at 16:00.
