November 2013 saw the first ever Camp CoderDojo take place at the Quality Hotel in Clonakilty, West Cork. Attended by 170 kids, mentors and parents from all over Ireland, the event which was sponsored by SouthWestern and the Quality Hotel, was a hub of activity from start to finish; children ranging from 7 to 16 years of age learned how to code and develop their skills in areas such as Scratch Programming, Game Development, Web development, Robotics including Arduinos and Raspberry Pi’s, Minecraft Modding, 3D Modelling and 3D Printing.

The organisers would like to thank all mentors who assisted so much at the Camp and all those who supported the event – SouthWestern and The Quality Hotel Clonakilty, McCarthy and Co. Solicitors, HighResolution Printer Cartridges and Office Supplies, Rapid Broadband, ScienceWeek,  The Model Railway Village, West Cork Sand Circles, Ummera Smoked Foods, Ballygowan/Britvic and all those who helped and supported us in any way.

CoderDojo Clonakilty continues every Friday at the Quality Hotel from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. For more information go to http://coderdojowestcork.wordpress.com.
