My son really enjoyed the camp. The first hour he did typing which he really enjoyed and was really beneficial to him in school. He loved creating his comic strips and avatars. He got to send emails, create word processing and presentation slides. He also learned about storing documents in the cloud. He even managed to learn how to code! This is an excellent camp
and would highly recommend this for your child.

What our Customer Says

Many thanks for the courses you offered at Level 1 and Level 2. Both my children really enjoyed them and it kept them engaged. My oldest did a camp with Searsol a couple of years ago before he went to secondary school and it has really stood to him. His school uses ipads and he has dyspraxia, so he is heavily reliant on technology. It was great to see him being able to use the apps and email so well. I thought after it that it would be good for all children so that’s why I wanted my daughter to do it as well.

It’s going to be a huge benefit to Tom to learn touch typing when he starts Secondary School next year. We’re really proud of what he has achieved. Tom really learnt a lot on the Searsol Computer camps and made him more confident of making the step up from primary to Secondary school. He is well positioned to use his laptop in Secondary school and has gained vital computers skills that will help him through school.

Of all the ways in which we have tried to help David learning to typing with Searsol, it has been by far the most beneficial. For the first time David can express himself in his own words using a laptop at school. The Searsol Computer Camp has help David with his typing skills but also how to create word processing documents and presentation slides. He also really enjoyed the creative stuff at the last hour and created his own avatar, birthday card and comic strip. I would highly recommend the camp to any Parent that wants to give their child excellent computer skills.
