    -Hi there,
    I work for Community Living Brant as part of an initiative to connect young people with autism to different employers in the area. I work with a young man who excels in science. He has received the Science award for best grade 2 years in a row at his high school. I am writing you in hopes that you have an opportunity for him to use his skills in science to enter the workforce.
    I can be reached at 519 – 753- 6303 ext. 510
    Thank you for your time!

      Thank you for the information. I will ask Janill Rego from our office to call and discuss the matter with you further.

    As a teacher, I cannot emphasize enough the importance of getting kids into STEM fields, especially young girls. Your program looks impressive. I would like to sign my own children up for this, however, I cannot find any pricing information. I do not want to give any of my children’s information on “register now” before I have pricing. It doesn’t make sense to buy something without knowing the price. While this may be a “priceless” experience for my children, unfortunately, I am not on the Council for the Bank of Canada.

    If your prices are not public information, then this is another issue that raises concerns.

    May we please have pricing?

    Thank you.

    • Janill Rego

      Hi David, All of our prices are available online. I have included the link to our Ottawa STEM Camp page as I noticed your e-mail address indicates Carleton. Please scroll down towards the bottom of the page here you will find pricing information (right above the blue “Register Now” button) as well as dates, themes, camp hours, drop off and pick up locations and much more. Please feel free to contact us in the office if you have any questions. 519-913-5283

    To Head Office:

    I just wanted to take a minute and let you know how wonderful the camp counselors are at the Niagara-on-the-Lake location.

    Brigette, Riley, Kendra, Carolynn and Jonelle are AMAZING COUNSELLORS!!!!!

    This is our first time attending Stem Camp and I have to admit I experienced abit of anxiety dropping off my 6 year old son. This was his first time at an all-day camp. Throughout the day, I checked online and saw the photos of the campers being posted, and saw a few pics of my son. He was happy and participating in the activites. When I went to pick him after the first day of camp was over, he asked me if he could stay longer and that he loved Minecraft Camp and if I could sign him up for the Planes, Trains & Automobile camp.

    The counselors are friendly, engaging, took an interest in my son. They shared stories at pickup time. They truly appeared to enjoy being with the kids and seemed to love what they were doing.

    My son shared so many stories each day, on what they learned and what they did, we had some engaging conversations. The topics you are teaching the children are great. When play and learning are combined, the results are amazing!

    Needless to say, my son is now on week 2 of camp. So thank you for offering such a great program for the kids and for choosing amazing counselors. They made this a wonderful experience for both my son and I.

    I highly recommend STEM Camp to everyone.

    See you next summer!

    i have left a comment in the “contact” section above. As i stated previously, i was looking for activities in Kincardine, to compliment the beach days my 6 year olds enjoy. i was excited to see that this year kincardine was hosting a stem program for the first time and i eagerly looked into it, only to be terribly disappointed in the “themes” the program is to be presented in. Using TV and Movie themes is very alienating to many children: many parents believe that the show/movies are not appropriate developmentally for their children(age appropriate) and also the themes are gender specific to males. Both the federal and provincial governments in recent years have recognized that girls need to be encouraged and engaged in scientific explorations, andyour approach to this year’s program is at odds with this mandate. My daughters enjoy “science in the classroom” programs that come to their school, and exploring and creating and learning scientific concepts in their environment. Please keep my opinions in mind when creating your programs for 2018, if you create gender neutral and appropriate themes i will be signing them up next summer. thank you

      Good afternoon. Thank you very much for your comment. We are very excited to have a camp at Kincardine as well. The reception of the community has been so great that we are adding weeks to the camp so we can meet the demand! As well did you know that 50% of the current registrations are girls at Kincardine? This percentage is higher than at any other of our camps in the province! The studying of trends and programming is extensive to ensure that we are gender neutral thus promoting inclusion for girls in the STEM related activities. We follow the studies and recognize the findings of the need for girls to be encouraged in these fields. Our themes and programming is developed by a retired science teacher ensuring professional curriculum in the activities and are sensitive to include both genders. If you would like to learn more about these activities we would be more than happy to discuss this with you.

      I just want to second Barbara’s post. My 8 yr old daughter asked to do a science camp this summer. I was happy to find this camp. When I told her the theme choices for each week her first question was if she would be the only girl there. That is the message the theme choices sent her. I would expect your organization to do more to change stereotypes not reinforce them.

      • Paul De Jong

        Thank you for your feedback. While researching trends and issues which may arise in the themes finally decided on by a group, we try and come to a consensus that invites inclusion and excites what we feel is a stimulating program with activities based on STEM. Feel free to share with your daughter that many other girls have signed up seeing the excitement in these themes. We will continue to be sensitive to this issue to ensure the message sent is that STEM is all inclusive.

    For an organisation at the forefront of teaching technology, I was very disappointed that all your systems crashed on me when I tried to book the camp my son specifically chose. He wasn’t interested in most of the themes and had only theme he was interested at all. When the system finally came back online (and I did check every 5 minutes for the next 4 hours until they were finally online again) the camp he wanted to attend was suddenly fully booked. I even phoned your offices early on to see if I can book offline so he could still get his spot, but no, sorry, you’ll have to play Russian roulette with the internet instead and hope you get a hit in time. I am very disappointed, to say the least, and I know my son will be very upset. I expected more.

    • Sorina Du Toit

      Now I can’t even get a different week registered as the online system took all my details (incl credit card) and just spun until it said there was an error processing my request. Tried to re-submit, but it won’t allow me.

      • Janill Rego

        As per our response below, please feel free to give us a call in the office. We will happily help out any way we can.

    • Janill Rego

      Hello Sorina,

      Yesterday afternoon Amazon’s web servers experienced a massive service outage. Unfortunately, this caused several thousand sites to go down across North America and ours was not immune. We thank you for brining this to our attention, we are working diligently to return all phone calls and e-mails from parents who were not able to register. If you would like to give our office a call this afternoon we would be happy to enrol your son. 519-475-6600

      Thank you.

    Good Afternoon,

    I would like to offer a suggestion to modify the themes of the camps for next year. The themes:
    Pokémon, Transformers, Ninja Turtles, Plants Vs Zombies, and Star Wars are all very ‘boy’ targeted themes.

    I understand that girls will like some of these themes as well, but they are predominantly targeted towards boys.

    Speaking from my personal point of view, my children, both girls (ages 5 and 8) do not want to attend for fear of the classes being all boys and the days being filled with activities surrounding a theme they have no interest in, or perhaps have never even heard of.

    • Janill Rego

      Hi Becky,

      Thank you for your feedback. Camp themes are decided by researching trends that appeal to youth between the ages of 5-13 years old. We try and come to a consensus that invites inclusion and excites what we feel is a stimulating program with activities based on STEM. If your daughters are interested in STEM fields, we are confident they will enjoy the activities at camp regardless of the weeks theme. Feel free to share with your daughters that many other girls have signed up seeing the excitement in these themes. We will continue to be sensitive to this issue to ensure the message sent is that STEM is all inclusive.

      Thank you, have a great day.

  • A.Johnny

    In the recent months I have been looking into summer camps for my young girls. Similar to your program goals I would love to instill in them an interest in the STEM domains and hands-on, participatory, inquiry based learning. When learning about your summer programs I was excited to look into them further. Although the sessions look very interesting my only suggestion and feedback is that the themes you’ve chosen are much more appealing to young boys (I hate to generalize but in this case I believe it to be true). Pokémon, Transformers, Star Wars and Ninja Turtles are not themes that resonate with young girls as much as they do with young boys. If you did a quick survey at any elementary school I’m sure that this would hold true. By choosing these themes you are not attracting both genders equally and you are (unintentionally, I hope) not being an inclusive program which is perpetuating some of the underlying issues in the STEM field already.
    So my suggestion and feedback would be to perhaps broaden your themes to be more inclusive to both genders. At a time when much effort is going into encouraging young girls to be more involved in the STEM field, a field currently very male dominated, I think that your programs should attempt to engage both genders equally.

      • Janill Rego

        Please feel free to suggest themes you feel would be more interesting to your daughter and young girls in general. We would be happy to take them under consideration for future themes. We understand the importance of engaging girls in the STEM fields and look forward to improving our program each summer.

    Hello, I am planning to register my child to the Cambridge STEM summer camp this summer. I understand that the summer camp will be held at a church… Can you explain to me what activities will be done at the church? Will the kids be outside all day or indoors at the church? Are there once a week activities where the kids go somewhere?

    • Janill Rego

      Thank you for your question! Yes, our Cambridge location this summer is at a Church. The activities this summer are standard at all of our camps, the location being a Church will not affect the execution of them. The campers are both inside and outside during the day. They are allotted a period of free time that will take place outside, additionally there are certain activities that are done outside (weather permitting). We do not have any off site trips, the campers will remain at the Church all day. Please feel free to contact us with any further questions or concerns!
