    About Medics Camp

    The coolest new (virtual) summer camp where kids are doctors for a week! This STEM camp will have kids exploring the world of medicine with hands-on, age appropriate activities, experiments, crafts & games while having fun and meeting new friends from across Canada.  Last summer we took our traditional Medics Camp programming and turned it into an interactive virtual medical clinic.  Material kits and instructor led zoom sessions bring the "camp at home" experience to life. Choose from our  different medical themed camp weeks, each one a unique experience.  If your child is interested in being a doctor or healthcare professional they won't want to miss Medics Camp 2021!

    COVID-19 Response 

    Our STEM program is all about the science and our virtual Medics Camp last summer was a huge success with almost 200 kids attending from all over Canada, the US, Mexico and even Cuba! The incredibly positive feedback we received from parents and kids who attended virtual Medics Camp in 2020 has confirmed that our virtual program delivers a fun and engaging camp experience to kids everywhere, not just those locally. The power of technology removes geographical barriers to our Medics Camp program and unites kids who share a common interest through a shared experience. We are excited to be offering 7 different virtual medical theme weeks. Register for one week or all of them and each week will be a completely different experience. We are proud to announce the addition of our new virtual Forensic Medicine theme week for 2021 and it's only available for our Junior Medics. If your child is interested in the medical field and loves to learn, they won't want to miss Virtual Medics Camp 2021!

  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of Medics Camp

    our take

    There is truly a camp to meet every interest, and Medics Camp is a great example of that. It was founded by Amanda Farris, who brings a wealth of experience, including some gained at the venerable Johns Hopkins University and medical school in Baltimore, Maryland. Play and roleplay are important aspects of the sessions, with kids diving in to their new identities as practicing physicians. There’s a strong curricular element as well, providing kids with a foundation in the medical arts, sciences, first aid, healthy living, and personal safety. Staff are vibrant and attuned to creating an interactive inspiring atmosphere. Before and after care is offered at all three locations, something which families understandably appreciate.

    Medics Camp-Great from Start to Finish
    Maria (Parent)

    My daughter had a phenomenal time at the Mini Medics Camp in July. From the very first day she was excited to tell us all about what she learned about germs. She came home on that first day and had to make a ‘home’ for her germ, which she took into camp with her each day the rest of the week. She learned about lungs, the heart, breaks, sprains, choking and much more in a positive an interactive way. She has asked to go back next year. As a parent it is wonderful feedback. This is truly a wonderful program and I am super thrilled to have come across the ad for this camp. The Mini Medics Camp is definitely going to be on our list of camps for next year. Keep up the terrific work. My daughter loved it! - Mari ... Read More

    Delighted and Impressed
    Marnie (Parent)

    "What a delightful, educational, comprehensive and exceptionally run camp!! We were impressed from beginning to end, every day a new learning experience and opportunities to grow as a mini medic and empathetic camper. The counsellors were wonderful & fun and the impression and knowledge you left my son with was unmatched by any other camp he attended this summer. Weeks later he is still incorporating his learning & terminology in his day to day and enthusiastically sports his camp medics shirt and badge any chance he gets ;) Superb teaching! Thank you Amanda & Team, we’ll be back! ... Read More

    Excited about Learning
    J.K. (Parent)

    My 9 year old son came home excited everyday to tell me what he learned. It inspired many discussions about health and disease, genetics and professions that are related to medicine. This camp was ideal because it combined involved and enthusiastic staff, fun activities and a multitude of learning opportunities. We are already looking forward to next year ... Read More

    Kid Approved
    Kristine (Parent)

    My 8 year old daughter absolutely adored this camp. She wasn't sure at first whether she'd like it, but she had a blast every day and on the last day raved about all the fun activities. Definitely recommend it!!

    Different, Rewarding and FUN!
    J.M. (Parent)

    My kids (9 & 7) attended medic camp a few weeks ago. They had the BEST time. The kids did something new every day and they came away from camp with so many valuable learnings. The camp was very well organized. Amanda was great! The instructors were very nice and fun. We will be back next year! I’d recommend this camp to any parent looking for a camp that’s different and rewarding ... Read More

    Rentals & Services

    Offers children's birthday party packages: Yes
    New for 2021 The virtual Mobile Medics Birthday Party package for kids ages 5-12. The birthday doctor and their medical team of friends will enjoy 60-75 minutes of fun at the instructor led mobile medics Zoom clinic. Each doctor will receive a material kit containing everything they'll need for the hands-on activities. Many of the kit items will continue to be enjoyed long after the event by your future doctors and healthcare professionals so host provided loot bags are not usually necessary. (We've got you covered!) Some parents may choose to continue the party with their guests after the Mobile Medics instructor session ends. In most cases we can accommodate requests for an extended Zoom session by making you the co-host at no additional charge. We want your child's virtual birthday party with us to be fun, engaging, unique and memorable so if you have any special requests for customization, just let us know. Details and pricing will be available on our website as of January 1st. Birthday parties require booking at least 2 weeks prior to the requested date.

    Medics Camp 2020 didn't happen quite the way we had planned, but sometimes good things can still happen even during a pandemic.  Virtual camps and workshops were actually something I had planned on adding to our service offering in 2025. So, while I was disappointed that our onsite camps didn't happen in  2020, I embraced the challenge of pivoting and moving our unique camp experience to a virtual platform a little earlier than planned.  

    A huge thanks to all of the families that support Medics Camp and continue to share in our virtual journey.  The feedback from our virtual camps last summer was amazing!  We received the most kind and thoughtful emails from parents telling us how much their child was enjoying camp.  Some parents even called to tell us they learned a few things at Medics Camp when they were supposed to be working from home (don't worry, we won't tell your boss!) 

    Medics Camp 2021- The Medics Camp team and myself are excited to offer our virtual programs again this summer and we even have a new one for the ages 9-13 called "Forensic Medicine".   

    We are committed to providing each and every child an amazing camp experience that starts from the time they enter the virtual Medics Camp zoom doors until we say goodbye to them at the end of each camp day.  If your child is interested in the medical field they won't want to miss our upcoming season and the opportunity to be a doctor for a week.

    • Why Camp is so Important for Kids

      Wondering whether sending your child to a camp this year is a good idea? I encourage you to read this infographic on the 11 Benefits of Summer Camp by Ryan at iDTech.com.  https://www.idtech.com/blog/benefits-of-summer-camp-infographic

      Great camps regardless of whether they are a daycamp, overnight camp or virtual, they are more than just childcare.  They are an experience your child can share with like minded peers.  A place to grow, have fun and meet new friends.  They aren't school but learning happens without kids even realizing it and kids need camp this year more than ever! 

      Whatever your plans are for summer 2021, find a great camp for your child(ren) to attend.  The benefits go far beyond the moment and they will remember their camp experience for years to come.
