Senior Elementary STEM Week Camps

Our Senior Elementary Stem Week Day Camps are focused on engaging senior elementary aged campers ages 9, 10, 11 (& 12) with STEM-based playful learning activities that are age-appropriate.

 

All our Senior Elementary Lego Camps will utilize the afternoons to focus on STEM learning with our specialized camp program partners, while the mornings are spent being physically active, with the pace of the camp changing depending on the energy levels of the children.

Both our Drone Camps and Young Film Maker camps are full-day programs, primarily engaged with STEM programming.  However, each of these camps will take body breaks and spend a healthy amount of time outdoors. As well, with Drone Camp and the Young Film Maker Camps, part of the learning will use outdoor environments.

 

For all the Senior Elementary STEM Camps, total camp sizes are small and supervision is maintained at a high level, with our Camp Experience Officers (CEOs) delivering attentive care with the flexibility to address individual camper needs when required.

Important

All STEM camps are single stand-alone camps. They are not progressive from week to week. For example, if you take Lego Robotics two weeks in a row, the same program will be delivered each week.  We do recognize that campers will improve their learning by repeating a camp. However, we highly recommend that you do not sign your child up for more than two weeks of the same camp program. 

Activities

All of our Senior Elementary STEM Camps will also include a pizza day each week, with vegetarian and lactose-free options available. The STEM camp weeks and their themes are below. 

Registration is online ONLY

The Register button links directly to our online payment and registration system. We encourage you to add your child to the waitlist if camps are full so that you are the first to hear about increased spaces or additional camps. If you need assistance, please email programs@kmscrhs.ca.
