Summer Camp 2024


This summer @ The BraineryTM we will embark on a fantastic adventure with Destination Exploration, where our children will become EXPLORERS! Students will learn about the various types of exploration from the land and seas to exploration into new technologies and understanding. These concepts and ideas will be imparted through a series of activities that will teach the children about the weekly theme, but also help to develop their critical thinking and problem-solving skills

From designing submarines and lunar landers to using AI tools and extracting DNA, the children will be hands-on participants in their own learning. During each interactive bi-weekly subject, children will discover another unique aspect of exploration, as well as how they can be an explorer themselves.

Campers will experience art projects, science experiments, critical thinking activities, cooking projects and math and literacy activities. Our unique Proud to be PoliteTM curriculum promotes manners and life skills daily. Our Young Entrepreneurs and PhilanthropistsTM program will allow children to build four businesses and will donate their earnings to charity. Children will also participate in exciting and educational field journeys at least twice a week, as we explore the world around us.

Sign up today for the adventure of a lifetime, that will lead to a lifetime of adventure!
