Summer Camp 2020

(July and August)

Every year we organize Summer Camps for kids. We know how important it is that children get the right amount of 'screen time' versus physical activities at class. Students at our Camps will learn and have fun while participating in a mixture of tech and non-tech activities - Coding and Robotics, Science, Engineering, Dance, Art, Cooking, Board Games, Reading, Tag Games and Fitness Exercise.

Our Camp Instructors will work with your child to make sure they are connecting to the weekly challenge and developing their ability to think creatively, work collaboratively, and respond resiliently.

 

We have 2 different curriculum (A & B) that alternates each week. So campers who register more than one week do not repeat the same projects. And even if they come for more than 2 weeks, our camp instructors will vary lessons and projects to suit individuals who have attended in the past weeks. 

Simple machine and mechanical systems

  • Discover mechanical principles by exploring, investigating and solving tasks related to mechanical principle.

  • Learn robot design, construction and programming using Lego Wedo, Mindstorms EV3 and the Arduino microcontroller, including mechanical structure, motors, gears, power, sensors, programming syntax.

 

Stitch by Hand - Campers (Gr K-2) will work on a selection of super cute hand sewn projects. Our fun, kid friendly project kits will make learning easy.

Board Games Encouraging children to play different types of board games can also increase verbal and communication skills, while helping develop attention skills and the ability to concentrate and focus for longer periods of time.

 

Tag games in the Gym – Keeping students active with some physical activities and games in between class lessons.

 

Baking - Campers (Gr K-2) Incorporating Science, Math and Nutrition lessons.

Sewing - Campers (Gr K-2) Kids will learn how to do basic stitches, sewing button and build their hand sewing skills. No sewing experience necessary.

Our goal is that, through these activities, students will have fun and be empowered with new skills in critical thinking and problem solving, creativity and innovation, communication and collaboration.
