Love computers – so do we and we thought lets get 20 of them and run a sweet camp for all those hard core gamers out there.

  • building some ultimate air bottle rockets that should get some serious air time
  • electronic project construction – have you ever built your own computer before?
  • using GPS’s with a twist
Oh … and did I mention we spend an entire afternoon at camp paint-balling. That’s right paint-ball. Taking the computer gaming scenarios and computer game shooting from computer outside and apply it to …. well each other … with paint!!
Small Print: CYC Waihola does not condone shooting each other unless it’s done with love ……. and paint 🙂

There are only 20 spaces at this extremely popular camp – so get in early and Enrol online now.

Dates: Monday 2nd  – Friday 6th October 2017
Price: $220
