Summer Boot Camps – Summer Break
The British Youth IT College is hosting Summer Boot Camps this year during the Summer Break from school. Does your child want to learn to make their own games? How about learn how their console games are made? This is all available during our Computer Coding Boot Camp this Summer!
9 – 14 Year Old Boot Camps
These Boot Camps will cover the basics of the Game Engine and delve a little bit into coding. This will help them understand the basics of coding and give them an insight to what games development involves.
14 – 16 Year Old Boot Camps
These Boot Camps will go into more detail on what’s involved in Game Development. This will involve more in depth coding as they learn about mroe complex functions and methods to get their games working.

- Kids are required to bring their own meals for the lunchtime break.
- Kids are advised to bring their own laptops in order to keep the programs they make and the software we install, however we have the necessary facilities to allow them to create the programs and they can bring in a pen drive to save their work.
Summer Computing Boot Camp for kids
What is Computer Coding? Computer Coding or programming as its better known in the industry; is a way of telling the computer what to do. A programme (even your favourite game), is a list of instructions which tell the computer which actions to perform. The best way to describe this process is if I give you an example:
I ask you to make me tea. You don’t know how to make me tea. Are you going to bring me tea? No.
I write you a list of instructions on how to make me some tea. I tell you to read the list and make me tea. Do you bring me tea?
Voila! You bring me tea.
Programming is very much the same, only we use algorithms and other not-so-complex methods to tell a computer to do something we want it to. These algorithms and such usually involve math, which is why programming is a great way to improve your child’s logical thinking. A kid who understands a computer program, likely understands more maths.
How is this of any use to my child?
This question is common. Why should my child learn to code? I’ll tell you this for free, if your child learns to code, and they stick with it throughout school and high school, they could be one of the UK’s top earners not even a decade after they leave school. Maybe you’re not so money motivated, perhaps happiness. Your child will have the opportunity to socialise with like-minded children in their age bracket while learning a valuable skill.
How do we know this is really the case?
