Canadian Space Agency + STEM Camp

STEM Camp and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) collaborated as part of STEM Camp’s space unit during the summer of 2021. Dr. David Saint-Jacques visited forty six (46) camp locations in Ontario virtually impacting the lives of hundreds of children aged 5-13.

“STEM Camp is very grateful for the time that David spent with our campers during the summer of 2021. After a summer of no summer camp experiences for children, it was more important than ever for children to have camp and interactions with incredible people such as David. Thank you for making such a huge impact last summer David!

 – Kevin Cougler, Executive Director, STEM Camp
