Rising K – Rising 6th Graders
July 29 – August 2
7:45 a.m. – 6 p.m. 
$425
Camp includes free choice of activities from 7:45-9 a.m. and 3-6 p.m. each day at Kinder Quest or Cougar Quest, Collegiate’s After-school facilities.
Bring a nut-free lunch and filled water bottle from home each day. Snacks and drinks are provided.
Campers will participate in a variety of hands-on projects that include building and engineering challenges. They will also be introduced to age-appropriate technology that supports their budding STEAM interests. This camp offers the perfect balance between arts and crafts, physical play, technology, learning and more! For example, rising Kindergarten-rising 1st Graders will work on motorized one-of-a kind Lego projects and construct unique structures made from a wide assortment of building materials and their imaginations. These challenges will encourage teamwork and creative problem-solving.
Rising 2nd-rising 6th Graders will use advanced Lego Mindstorms Robotics 3.0 kits to build a variety of robotics projects enhancing their creativity through engineering and design. They will take control of these projects remotely using iPads and, at the end of the week, there will be challenges designed to test each team’s robot. They will also be creating 3D fingertip designs by exploring coding and programming using the latest software and technology. Campers will not only know how to create a robot but also understand how it thinks and moves while learning the value of problem-solving and teamwork.
Join Collegiate faculty members Greg Sesny, Upper School physics teacher, and Farley MacDonald, Middle School science teacher, who will lead a team of camp counsellors to expertly guide the campers through various daily challenges and activities.
