There will be a  number of Computer Camps held on DkIT Campus during the summer months, the first kicking off 4th June. All camps will run from 10am to 3pm each day in the PJ Carroll Building.

DkIT Summer Computer Camps

There are different types of camps, taking into account the different experience of the participants and different depth to which topics are covered.

You can apply for a summer computer by selecting a date and filling in the required form.

Important Information Before Applying

Each camp is limited to 20 places. Depending on demand some of the camps will run twice. Some camps state a “preference for girls” as new educational guidelines are encouraging girls in all STEM subjects. However, applications from boys are welcome for these camps and will be considered in a shortfall of numbers.

If you book a camp, but wouldn’t mind going to another, just indicate this in the Special Requirements box. This may allow the DkIT staff to facilitate everyone. If you have any queries, please email
