Five Days of Fun – Problem Solving, Creativity, Building, Teamwork

Summer Camp participants will be challenged with designing and building their “City of the Future”, addressing a wide range of issues.  They will have to consider how the city will feed itself, provide clean water for its citizens, how people will travel, where they will live, energy production, dealing with waste and much more.  Throughout the week they will carry out a range of problem solving challenges around the issues they need to address in the design of the city.

At the end of the week they will have an opportunity to build a model of their city and on the final day parents will be invited to view their work and hear the children explain how their city will function.

How Good is the Sentinus Summer Camp?”

To help you decide whether the programme offers value for money, we have quoted comments from just two of the many parents who took the time to write to us with their feedback.

“My girls are veterans of the summer camp scene having attended all variety of camps/ clubs over the last 5 years and they have unanimously agreed that this was by far their favourite (and getting agreement from my twins is an achievement in itself). They thoroughly enjoyed the entire week and were full of enthusiasm. They spoke very highly of the three leaders, commenting on how helpful and kind they were. From a parent’s perspective it was lovely to get an opportunity to see the outcome of all their hard work at the closing ceremony.  So I would just like to say thank you on behalf of my husband and myself. The girls are already pestering me to register them for next year.”

“Our 11 year old son took part in the week long summer scheme at Ballymena Academy. To say he loved it is an understatement!  Every day he came home saying “that was the best day yet”. His trainers made a great impression and we were regaled each evening with tales of adventures on the high sea.  I can’t recommend this company highly enough.”

Sentinus will run eight one week programmes during July and August 2019, taking place in:

  • Ballymena
  • Belfast (x2)
