Activities: STEM Camp Kitchener involves both hands-on and computer-based activities for double the STEM fun! Hands-on activities include engineering design challenges, science experiments, and coding and robotics programs featuring camper’s favourite robots, Edisons, and Ozobots. This summer, campers are required to bring their own laptop or tablet to camp which they will use to code Edison robots and the new Micro:bit! Computer-based activities also utilize programs such as Scratch and Minecraft for campers to code, build, and further explore the wonderful world of STEM. Each week, activities follow one of four exciting themes including Star Wars, Harry Potter, Minecraft, and Superheroes! For more details on weeks, themes, and activities go to our Activities Page.

COVID-19: STEM Camp is preparing to operate in-person and virtual camps this summer. We have every reason to believe through our discussions with the Ontario Camps Association and their relationships within the Government of Ontario that summer day camps will proceed. In preparation for in-person camps, STEM Camp has prepared its Return to Camp Guideline document (found on our FAQ page) which will be continuously updated as new health and safety regulations are announced. We have also introduced our No Risk Refund Policy to ensure families receive a full refund (also found on our FAQ page) in the unlikely event that STEM Camp Kitchener has to be cancelled. The health and safety of your children in our care will always be our primary concern.
