What Parents Say

We absolutely LOVE it when our parents and campers send us STEM Camp testimonials that we can upload to our website. This is a new section that we are still building out so check back in the new year for more great comments from parents. Thank you for sending them!

“My daughter came home at the end of her week-long STEM Camp program and said ‘Mom, I want to be a scientist!'” – Dr. Jennifer Jeffries


“My son LOVES STEM Camp and has registered for his third year. With summer approaching he is sure to remind us that is the only camp that he is interested in attending. Throughout the camp, he comes home every night with new facts and figures, and a lot of excitement. I am grateful there is such a camp that encourages Science, Technology, Engineering and Math throughout the summer months in a fun and positive atmosphere.” – Lisa Lortie


“Thank you for an amazing summer. My son wanted to come back again in September and was sad camp was over!” – Karen Stevenson Bennett


“My name is Mary and my son is registered at the Ancaster camp this week. I wanted to write a quick note to commend you on the absolutely FANTASTIC camp you run! I have been absolutely impressed with the many hands on activities the children get to participate in and even during outdoor play there were organized activities. My son has absolutely loved the camp. So much so that he had an appointment today that I had to cancel because he didn’t want to miss camp today. Every night on my way home, in the car, Max asks me “Mommy can I go to camp tomorrow?” As a parent, it is so lovely to see your child excited about learning! I want to also commend you on the website you have created for parents to update them on what is happening at camp. I loved the fact that I could log on from work and see what was happening to then talk about it with Max and hear the excitement as he is sharing his day with me. I have highly recommended your camp to my neighbors, whom I am sure will be signing up their kids next summer. I know for certain that Max will be returning there next summer :). It is so refreshing to send your child to camp where they are actually doing things/learning and it is not just a babysitting service. Kudos to your camp leaders too for engaging the students and making them excited to learn. I am looking forward to the [STEM Fair] presentation this afternoon! Job well done…keep up the excellent work!!!” – Mary Novara


Dear STEM Camp Staff,

I sent four of my children to the Minecraft Camp with a little hesitation.  Being that it was their first day camp  I wasn’t sure if it would keep their interest for the whole week.   When I picked the kids up on the first day they were all excited to tell me all about their day and what they did.  They loved the crafts and all the information!!  They were all very excited every morning to leave the house and were always sad because I would come a few minutes too early to pick them up.  Thank you so much for the camp.  What a great week!  I will definitively  ask the kids if we get another flyer sent home at the end of school next year if they would like to go if it is ran in Strathroy again.
Thanks again
I was fortunate to have come across your summer camp program last year and was so impressed by the program that it was a no brainer for me to send my son again this year.  It was also great to see how much you expanded your program and oferrings throughout the province.
I had originally registered my son for two weeks this summer and ended up registering him another week for he loved it so much.  At the end of every camp week, my son would be so disappointed that camp was coming to an end.  He has absolutely loved being there for the three weeks that he was.  As a parent, it is so lovely to see your child excited about learning!
As I indicated last year, I have highly recommended your camp to some of my friends who signed up their children this year and they ended up sending their children to all 4 themes this summer as their children LOVED camp.  I continue to highly recommend your program to family and friends.
In the past, when I mentioned camp to my son, the usual response was “ah I don’t want to go to camp” – After discovering STEM Camp and I mention camp to my son, the response is “yeah I love camp!”
You guys have such an amazing set up with fantastic camp leaders who keep the children engaged in learning.  The activities you have set up are fantastic.  They are so much fun and exciting for the students.
It is so reassuring that despite not being in school in the summer, my son has continued to learn by attending STEM Camp.  There is no other camp that I would send my son to. We look forward to another fun and exciting summer next year.  Keep up the great work!!

Both our young son and daughter have attended two wonderful years at STEM.  Our children have a variety of experiences throughout every summer, but STEM Camp is a family favourite.  The learning environment is fun, but provides cutting edge information on a variety of topics, all of which are relevant to their regular classroom curricula.  We have found the staff to be extremely supportive,  friendly and knowledgeable on the topics being taught.  Field trips are interesting and locally relevant, and guest teachers are well qualified.  There are plenty of hands on learning opportunities as well as a socializing component.

I have been particularly impressed by the great job STEM does to encourage my daughter in areas in which girls often lack confidence and support.  Both kids have strengths I can trace to this programming.

STEM will continue to be a priority for us.  I encourage any parent who wants to give their child an extraordinary learning experience to explore STEM programming in their area.  Our kids love it.

Thanks STEM!
