Program Descriptions

Grade 1-3

Out of This World

  • Instructor: Amanda Morgan

From our Earth’s atmosphere to the outer reaches of our solar system, this hands-on camp explores planets, spaceships, the lunar lander and constellations. Learn about the four forces of flight, the life cycle of a star, the phases of the moon and participate in a rocket launch that is out of this world!

Note: The material in this camp is very similar to that presented in previous Out of this World LEAP camps. Please consider that if retaking this camp.

Fun with Physics

  • Instructor: Jessica Fehderau

Are you curious about optics? Are you mad about magnets? And what is relativity, anyways? Explore physics, the natural science disciple that helps us to understand how the whole universe behaves, in this exciting new camp! Through hands-on experiments, inquiries and design and build challenges, campers will have a blast learning about how the universe works.

Grade 4-6

Disease Detectives: A Real-Life Health Mystery

  • Instructor: Margo Delaine

Do you love solving mysteries? Are you ready to sharpen your research skills and work to solve a menacing health problem? This camp combines science, social studies, research and teamwork as you solve the mystery and present your findings. Our mystery health challenge will involve a serious microbial illness that is sweeping through a town. 

Your Challenge: Why are people ill and how did they get this way? Campers become public health workers and scientific sleuths who must gather data and analyse information over the course of our camp. Our ultimate goal is to find the answer to these questions and work to make the community safe again. Good luck!

Drama-Rama

  • Instructor: Brandon Smith

Do you like to speak in funny voices and accents? Do you write plays or stories in your spare time? Do you like being the one in charge? Then join us at Drama-Rama this winter! Over the course of six mornings, we will give you a thirst for theatre, and the knack to act! Drama-rama will cover the basics of playwriting, character-building, directing, improvisation, puppetry and/or mask-making. Then we'll use those skills to create, rehearse and perform our very own dramatic productions! The dramatic arts are a powerful tool for developing self-confidence, creativity and empathy. By creating a safe and collaborative space that allows for maximum creative expression, children are able to explore their sense of identity and enhance their abilities of self-regulation and metacognition.

Note: Campers who attended this camp in summer 2018 are welcome to retake it if they want to further their adventures in drama.

Grade 6-9

Slide into Animation

  • Instructor: Kasia Niewiadomski

In this exciting new camp, bring your creative ideas to life by learning how to animate using Google Slides. Even if you aren’t the most incredible visual artist, you will learn to design and use online images to create amazing stop-animations right in the program. Be prepared to entertain your friends and family with creative stories, and wow your teachers and classmates with fun presentations and creations.
