Summer Camp 2023: Dates and Themes

Our camp weeks for 2023 will feature a great mix of new themes and classic favourites (including – by popular demand – 2 different Minecraft themes, each with unique programming!). 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.

STEM Camp Barrhaven FAQs

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about STEM Camp in Barhaven. We also have a whole bunch of other general FAQs, if you don’t find your answer here.

Every week, there will be a maximum of 40 children. 

Click here to view the locations and weeks that have either limited availability or are sold out. We update this report every business day. If the location and week you’re considering isn’t listed on this report, availability was not an issue as of when the report was created. We do recommend registering your child as soon as you can, as camps are filling up quickly.

Once we confirm the exact location for the Barrhaven Summer Camp, we will post an update.

Typically, our counsellor to camper ratio is 1:7. In other words, there is 1 counsellor for every 7 campers.  

The majority of our counsellors are university and college students (some secondary school students are hired each year, as well). We also employ teachers who want to create an impact in the summer months, as well as graduates of teachers colleges across Ontario. A recent Vulnerable Sector Police Check and being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are both mandatory requirements for all counsellors. There will be at least one counsellor present at each camp location with their First Aid certification at all times.

As a result of our planning, diligence and meeting or exceeding public safety requirements, we were very proud that in 2022, no child or counsellor contracted COVID-19 at a STEM Camp location. We are planning on releasing our 2023 Health and Safety Policy at the end of May 2023 (including COVID-19 details as well as other general health and safety information) to ensure it is as current as possible to the reality at that time and for the summer. Check back here for more information then.
