What a fantastic year 2016 proved to be! STEM Camp grew again this year to a total of 28 locations and over 4400 campers – experiencing an increase by over 2,000 campers from the previous summer! Thanks to all our supporters who help in making this happen.
The STEM Camp mission is to inspire youth through participating in hands-on activities in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Our philosophy is that children learn while they have fun and if they have fun while learning we have a chance to bridge the gap between students and the real world. Through summer camp educational experiences, we prepare them for a world where most of the employment will be in STEM-related career opportunities.
What sets us apart from other science and engineering camps? At STEM Camp, we consult with and utilize experts who KNOW the subject matter that relates to our activities. Guests such as astronomers, scientists, engineers, computer experts and athletes visit STEM Camp to work with the counsellors and campers, share their knowledge and create a fun environment for learning based on real world experiences. Campers get the right answers from qualified professionals who open their eyes to the subject matter and inspire them at the same time!
