Welcome to STEM Camp, Coquitlam!

STEM Camp is a not for profit organization founded in 2013, offering up fun and educational summer camp experiences for kids 5-13 all across Ontario and British Columbia, including Coquitlam. With summer camp Coquitlam, your camper will have the chance to grow their skills in science, technology, engineering and math while having an amazing time!

Every week, we will have amazing activities where kids will learn things like coding with Minecraft (that’s right, Minecraft fun is included every week of camp), programming a robot, building models, doing experiments and so much more, all wrapped in whatever the theme for that week is.

If your camper does not meet this age requirement, camp options will not be available for selection in the next step of the registration process.
