We're an innovative holiday camp and weekend course provider for children and teenagers aged 9-17 with a love of technology and making!

Fire Tech Camp empower young people with digitial skills, giving them the tools they need to code, engineer, design and make the future.

Over the course of five days, campers are introduced to new concepts and encouraged to work creatively and collaboratively. They are immersed in the inner workings of the tech and gaming worlds, tasked with the design and build of original projects, which can be shared with family and friends at the end of the camp. One day workshops and weekend courses are also available.


Since launching in Manchester in August 2014, we have worked with leading educational organisations, including the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) and Manchester Creative Studio. Summer 2016 courses will be held at the University of Manchester.

More About Fire Tech Camp

The company was founded in 2012 by Jill Hodges, when she launched the first camps at Imperial College London. Fire Tech Camp has since expanded into new areas, including Manchester, Bristol, Reading and Cambridge , where energetic and welcoming communities of tech educators have embraced the Fire Tech mission to empower children and teenagers with digital technology.

Responding to feedback from campers and parents alike, Fire Tech Camp is always looking to try out new ideas and develop course materials that will enable young people to experience first-hand the most cutting-edge methods and trends within the world of tech. This has led them to develop camps and workshops on Minecraft, Wearable Tech, Rapid Prototyping with 3D Printing, Digital Music Production and Physical Computing with Arduino. We also run coding and design courses that offer a firm foundation in what is fast becoming recognised as essential computer literacy skills.

Fire Tech's innovative approach to tech education has been recognised in the media, with feature in specialist publications such as The Wire and in national press.

Young people spend their lives on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other social media sites. So who better to put at the heart of an organisation’s  online activity than a digitally-connected, jargon-literate young person with a passion for online media?

This is exactly what The Juice Academy offers via its industry-led social media apprenticeship, the first ever in the UK.

Businesses get the opportunity to invest in budding talent across the North West, and young people have a chance to work with some of the UK’s biggest brands including JW Lees, Regatta, BetFred and Pets at Home.

So let’s get on with it.  We’re recruiting and placing 20 ‘Bright Young Things’ (BYTs) per quarter and we’ll be making quite a noise about it so it should be a hotly contested recruitment battle.

I’m sure you have lots of questions so pop along to our FAQ pages (for businesses and for apprentices) or apply here (businessesapprentices) and a member of our team will be in touch.

There is a huge digital skills gap in the UK, limiting the sector’s growth and prosperity AND there are thousands of bright young people out there, many of whom – due to the changes in university fees - might decide the apprenticeship route is more attractive than ever.

Couple this with the fact that these young people ‘live’ on social media channels more than ever before, and  the UK’s first workplace-based social media apprenticeship (The Juice Academy) is born.

The course is the brainchild of Tangerine PR, a Manchester-based PR agency committed to supporting the next generation of ‘bright young things’ into the marketing profession.

The consultancy, with the support of the National Apprenticeship Service and some of the North West’s leading marketing teams (inc JW Lees, Pets at Home, BetFred) and creative agencies (inc BJL, MediaCom, MagneticNorth) manages the development and delivery of the course.
