Summer Camps

When school is out for the summer, STEAMLabs offers weekly maker camps to engage kids and teens in a fun summer full of making! We have weeklong camps running every week in July and August for two whole months of fun at multiple Toronto locations.

 

Sign up for a one week camp or multiple weeks! Spend two full weeks (or more) at any camp to extend and enrich your camp and learning experience – expand on projects, build more things with new friends, and have even more opportunities for back to back learning and fun!

 

Simply sign up for the camp theme you are interested in and the number of weeks you’d like to join us for, then specify your skill level at check out and a unique program will be created for kids signing up for multiple weeks. We also offer a special deal for those signing up for two-week camps. 

THEMES

We’ve got four different camp themes to choose from including: Robotics camp, Minecraft Pro camp, Video Game Programming camp, and Tech Powered by Girls camp.

EDUCATORS

All of our educators and mentors have completed STEAMLabs Maker Educator programs and are highly skilled in working with the latest technology and creating spaces for our participants to explore, learn and understand technology. By understanding technology, kids learn to understand our world and their power in it.
