Another school holiday is just around the corner. That means one thing: it’s time to make a plan to defeat boredom, thwart mindless web-browsing and video gaming, and steer clear of yawn-inducing holiday camps. At CodeSpace, we’ve got you covered. We offer holiday camps that kids love and parents trust. We offer a range of topics and camp lengths with one goal: to empower kids with the skills to blend technology and creativity.

In our hands-on holiday camps, students can build and code their own Roblox Worlds,  create epic Minecraft Rollercoasters, and even Mod Minecraft!. There are plenty of options for curious beginners and advanced whizkids alike.

Kids leave CodeSpace camps with a better understanding of how technology works and the experience they’ll need to take their work to the next level and show it off to friends. And they may not realise it, but they’re also learning crucial skills like logic and problem-solving they’ll carry with them long after camp ends.

Our most popular camps fill up quickly, so reserve your spot now!

VACATION CARE PROGRAMS WITH A DIFFERENCE! Bop till you Drop are running Performing Arts Workshops in the July School Holidays. Our workshops are designed for children aged 5 – 12 years old. These programs are educational with professional teachers who will gently encourage and teach your child new skills in DANCING, SINGING, ACTING, plus craft, cooking and science to break up the action packed day.

There are 6 action-packed classes per day, which aim at building self-esteem in your child. We allow the children to be part of the creative process rather than dictating our ideas. This helps build their self-confidence and makes them feel proud of their achievements. The children will perform in a concert on the last day to show off their new talents and they will also be awarded a graduation certificate. The concert is an important part of building confidence and their public speaking skills. Also, we want them to walk away with a big sense of satisfaction knowing they worked towards something and accomplished it.
