Schedule

At the Funside Budapest international summer day camp, we have four one-hour long classes a day. At the Robotics Day Camp, two of the classes are robotics, while the other two are English, tennis or arts & crafts, based on your choice. Besides the classes, we have several games and fun activities, tournaments and competitions, as well as sport and drama games in the venue's garden and indoor areas. Throughout each week, our teachers take photos of the activities, which are then written on a gift photo CD. Each camper receives one of these at the end of the week to take home as a memory of the camp.

Classes

Acquiring IT skills has become a necessity in recent years, with an ever-growing interest in learning computer science at a young age, while also making the time spent in front of a screen as meaningful as possible. The goal of our Programming Camp is to introduce children and teenagers to the world of coding in a playful, interactive and fun way, as well as getting them started on a journey that doesn't end when the camp does, by showing them where and how to continue practicing what they have learned. During programming classes, our students learn the basic rules of coding and algorithmic thinking through games and puzzles, solving problems without even realizing their great complexity. For this, we use the Scratch and Code.org platforms, which teach programming through visual exercises, designed specifically for young learners. 

Please note: children must be able to read confidently to attend this class. Otherwise, we recommend our robotics day camp, where reading is less of a requirement.

This program also provides is a great introduction into our new afterschool programming and robotics courses, beginning in the autumn of 2017.
