Summer camps for kids

Kids participating at UOIT Summer CampsThe Faculty of Education at UOIT is offering a variety of unique summer camp programs in July and August.

Camp programs make use of laptops, digital cameras, science and engineering equipment, and iPad technology. Campers share the equipment. Each camp has a different focus and theme. All camp sessions include outside games and activities. An Indigenous perspective has been infused into the STEAM camps with campers learning cultural aspects through Knowledge Keepers.

Counsellors are Concurrent Education students and graduates of UOIT’s Faculty of Education program and Members of the Ontario College of Teachers
