Sheila Rhodes, Camp Director
Instructor, Faculty of Education UOIT
The Faculty of Education at UOIT is offering a variety of unique summer camp programs in July and August. Additional Coding and Minecraft camps for both younger and older children have been added this year! A low camper to counsellor ratio ensures maximum involvement. Three weeks are available as “Girls Only” which allows them to share their interests in science, technology and the environment with like-minded girls.
ENHANCED THIS YEAR – Family camp days – 5 days of camp programs to provide families with ideas for infusing STEAM into their activities.
EDUCATOR SESSIONS – Building on the success of the Teacher workshops in 2016, enhanced sessions have been developed for educators. These include: Minecraft and Coding in the Classroom; LEGO Robotics and Creating a Makerspace Levels One and Two.
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 creating a variety of crafts and artifacts.
Counsellors are concurrent education students and graduates of UOIT’s Faculty of Education program.
Camps are offered on the main campus of the University at 2000 Simcoe Street N. Oshawa from 9 am – 4 pm.
Before and after care is available for an additional fee. Times are from 8 am to 9 am and 4 pm to 5 pm.
An 'Optional Meal Plan' is also available at an additional fee.
