Welcome to STEM Camp!
Common Questions, Answered
What Are Camp Hours?
Our camp program operates from 9:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. each day. Drop off begins at 8:30 a.m. and pick up is between 4:00 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. We also offer early drop off starting at 8:00 a.m. and late pick up until 5:00 p.m. The fee for this is $6 each per day (or $12 per day for both early drop off and late pick up) as we have to have at least 2 staff to monitor the campers at all times.
Can I check on my child or have my local camp counsellor's phone number?
No, parents may not call head office to check on a child OR call the leader at the camp to check on a child. Staff are busy supervising children and running activities and you can check on them at the end of the day. We will also let you know if there is an issue.
Will the camp gear be provided the first day of camp?
If you ordered camp gear before June 1st, the camp gear will be waiting for your camper on the first day of camp. If you ordered after this date, it will be delivered to your home address (listed on your campsite profile) approximately 2-3 weeks from when you ordered it.
Do we need to download Minecraft? Does my child need to bring a device to camp? Can it be a tablet?
To get the most out of the camp, please download Minecraft (Java or Bedrock versions, not educational version) on your camper's device, and have them bring it to camp. There are also computer-based activities which require a device, which can be a tablet. This is not required, but is recommended for the most enjoyable STEM Camp experience.
How do I check camp availability?
You can check camp availability on your camp's location page, which you can find using this map. These are updated regularly.
Do you have a camp in my town? Where is it?

Is there any chance I will get off the waitlist?
Likely not. We are experiencing almost no cancellations. We recommend you choose a different week or location and enrol early next year. In the unlikely event a spot becomes available we will contact you.
