Camps at Engineering For Kids of Vancouver Island

The Fun, Educational Camp Your Child Is Bound to Enjoy!

At Engineering For Kids, our camps are carefully structured to provide your child with the enrichment he or she needs to grow and thrive. Our camps run in the spring, winter, and summer for your convenience. Our programs come in many varieties to accommodate your schedule, such as half-day camps, full-day camps, and holiday break camps. We also host camps on scheduled days off for reasons such as professional work days, teacher conference days, etc.

Just a few of these beneficial opportunities include:
  • Teamwork: Most of our camps schedule fun and engaging teamwork activities that teach children the value of investing in others.
  • Resilience and motivation: Our challenging programs help to teach kids how to keep trying. This also helps them feel accomplished when they succeed, which develops their will to learn.
  • Decision-making: Our uniquely structured activities help children establish and build upon great decision-making skills, which can help build confidence.

In addition, the wide range of activities and classes that we offer encourage children to try new things, which is a beneficial skill that can be applied in several instances throughout adulthood.

Engineering For Kids Summer Camp 2017 Vancouver Island

We took on some tough (but fun!) engineering challenges in Minecraft, created rockets and launched them 40 feet in the air, built amazing structures like skyscrapers and castles with Lego and recycled materials, played music using the Makey Makey invention kit, created magnetic slime, watched the solar eclipse, explored the beach, swam, and so much more.

And the best part? We met so many incredibly curious and imaginative kids who proved that creativity has no boundaries. We're already looking forward to next summer! We hope you'll join us.
