Summer & Spring Break Camps
Registration is now open for our 2019 Spring Break and Summer Camps!
What makes us Unique?
We have been running our Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) camps for five years now, the first in Vancouver to do so and we have developed a reputation as the go to place for kids maker camps in the Lower Mainland and perhaps Western Canada. The feedback we typically get from kids are statements like “best camp ever!” and “this is the coolest place ever!” Our passionate industry instructors inspire the kids and the kids in turn inspire us to raise the bar up higher each year. We have invested heavily in our facility, our equipment, safety, and industry instructors to create a special one-of-a kind environment.
One thing that makes us unique is that we have a very high instructor to participant ratio so all participants can get a lot of attention, hands-on experience and to ensure a safe environment. Most of our programs are limited to just eight kids so they usually fill up quickly… you won’t want to leave it the last minute as they normally sell out. Our instructors are also at the forefront of 3D printing, robotics, coding, design and more and their enthusiasm rubs off.
We have camps covering a wide range of topics from maker camps with 3D printing, electronics, robotics and more to coding, animation & game development camps to illustration and digital media camps so something for all interests, skills levels! We have camps for children and youth from 8 to 17 years old. Boys and girls equally like our camps and we make sure we make our camps inclusive and welcoming to people of all backgrounds and skill levels.
We operate out of a functioning industry innovation hub so the participants in our programs get to see tech companies in action, whether it’s SOC Robotics making humanoid robots and AR gloves or Fathom Scientific developing stream sensors for measuring water flow or TF Massif making world groundbreaking flextronic signs to name a few.
We hope to see you and your child or children at one of our camps and for them to experience the fun and learning!
