Special Interest Day Camps

Our special interest day camps are developed with a focus on developing skills related to areas of interest. We have just begun to develop programming of this nature but in the future, we will be expanding these camps.

For this summer in partnership with Orange STEM Education, we have a number of camps with a focus on Engineering, and the Science, Technology and Math needed to fuel it. Orange STEM's  distinctive hands-on projects, created by Ian Dudley, a Mechanical Engineering Technologist, teach Mechanics, Electronics and Robotics to all ages. Their programs are designed to develop problem-solving skills and encourage the teamwork, necessary for engineering. 

Tremendously popular, but new to us, are the Whitewater Camps run in partnership with Ottawa City Rafting, the local division of Wilderness Tours. In this camp, we have students outside and active learning about rivers, safety around moving water, and having fun in the world of whitewater. These camps have been sold out every year with other providers so we feel privileged to offer them here this year. With Ottawa's location in the middle of an internationally recognized whitewater paradise, this is a great way to introduce children to this magical world.

Last but not least with the location of our camp at the doorstep of a singletrack trail system of nearly 100 km, our mountain bike camps are an extension of our successful school Mountain Bike team and Club. Developed by Dave Stibbe a former professional Outdoor Adventure Guide and lead instructor for Algonquin College's Outdoor Adventure Diploma program, we have created an excellent skills development program for youth. Our access to the Green Belt trails and partnership with Wesley Clover's new Mountain Bike Trail network gives us unique access to world-class trail system for teaching and skills development all at our doorstep.
