This year we will have two CiviCamps in the UK to choose from!

  • May 15th in London

  • October 5th in Manchester

CiviCamps are one day events covering everything related to CiviCRM. They are a great opportunity to learn about CiviCRM and what it can do for your organization, meet other CiviCRM users, partners and Core Team members and gather their feedback, learn advanced strategies for managing your online database, ask any questions you might have, share tips and build connections! This is the opportunity to meet the CiviCRM community and share experiences and knowledge with other organizations using CiviCRM!

In addition, we will have a Sprint for those who are interested in contributing further, and a choice of Administrator and Developer Training for those who want to expand their knowledge:

  • UK Sprint: October 6th to 12th

  • Administrator Training: 3rd and 4th October

  • Developer Training: October 8th and 9th (in the same venue as the sprint)

Costs (all include food and refreshments):


Contributor Sprint

Help us push the CiviCRM project forward: add new functionality, fix bugs, improve marketing materials, document new features, interact with core team members and fellow CiviCRM-developers/implementors... and enjoy the beautiful Peak District!

Sprints are friendly and welcoming events that provide an opportunity for you to get to know the rest of the CiviCRM community and contribute back to the project at the same time. They are ideal for working on your pet project, learning about the latest developments in CiviCRM and building up your CiviCRM network. We recommend attending the full sprint but you're welcome to come for a shorter time if you prefer (3 days is probably the shortest amount of time you would want to come for).

Developer Training

The course covers everything you need to know to get up and running as a CiviCRM developer, and more. The training is delivered by CiviCRM experts from the UK, Europe, and further afield. At its core is a set of sessions that cover everything you need to get your development environment up and running, and to start writing extensions and improving core. As well as this, we're running a set of master classes on the latest techniques and technologies by subject matter experts.

It is run alongside our residential sprint so there'll be plenty of chances to chat with and learn from other developers, implementers and power users from the CiviCRM community. You're also welcome to stay on for the remainder of the sprint at no extra cost to continue learning about and contributing to CiviCRM.

Administrator Training

The administrator training course is targeted at administrators who want to learn more about configuring, customising and implementing CiviCRM into their organisation.

Whether you are new or already use CiviCRM, there is a world of tools, shortcuts and manipulations an administrator can use to get the most out of their software. We will help you navigate through this, from customising to integrating it with different websites, working through any challenges and helping you get what you want from CiviCRM.
