Innovation Camp Thinnox

Looking for an education camp in Mississauga? Consider Innovation Camp Thinnox, a day camp where kids have fun while earning OSSD credits.

Educational camps come in many different forms. Wide ranges of these specialty camps are aimed at teaching children in a specific area.

For example, academic-oriented camps may focus on math, engineering or debating skills. At computer camp, beginner to advanced level teaching helps children expand their knowledge base.

Some popular educational and academic camps include:

  • Animal and Nature Camps
  • College and SAT Preparation
  • Computer Camps
  • ESL / English Language Learners Camps
  • Foreign Language Programs
  • Science & Cultural Programs
  • Leadership & Community Service

Why academic camps and programs?

Summer, winter and March break education camps allow kids to explore and develop their interests and abilities. Campers gain valuable skills that further develop passions and interests while preparing them for success in school and later in the workforce. Some academic-based camps are geared towards helping struggling students improve their academic performance in school.

Educational camps and programs are alternative classrooms and learning settings - sometimes without walls – that help children advance an educational interest or skill.

All types of camps offer tremendous opportunities for children to learn. For example, a lot can be discovered about insects, flora and fauna during a long hike in the wilderness. Studies show that 98% of campers develop improved problem solving and memory skills and continue to use these skills once camp is over.

What to look for in an academic camp or program

If you’re looking for an academic camp or program for your child, you have plenty of options. You should first determine the setting you’re looking for. Many programs are offered in a school environment, while others are offered outdoors or at a traditional camp environment. Some camps even offer a mix of both environments.

Is your child interested in developing a particular interest like robotics, creative writing or zoology? If so, you’ll want to choose a camp that has access to the right equipment and resources. Look for camps with qualified instructors who are experienced in the area of interest.
