Summer Camps offer unique experiences
NAIT’s 2012 Summer Camps kick off Tuesday, July 3, with many running to the end of August. Campers as young as five and up to 18 years old will participate in hands-on activities in the areas of athletics, culinary arts, web design, video production, computer game design, leadership, theatre and more. Here are some highlights:
Mini Bakers (July 3-6; 9-13) and Mini Chefs (July 23-27; July 30 to Aug. 3; Aug. 7-10): In these camps, young bakers and chefs learn how to produce simple yet delicious items that can also easily be made at home. Half the time is spent in NAIT’s bakeries and kitchens, with the other half spent pursuing active fun in the institute’s recreational facilities. There are camps for a variety of ages, from eight to 15 years old.
Alternative Energy Camp (July 16-20): This is a new camp for 2012. It’s designed to introduce the fundamentals of producing alternative energy. Campers will spend their mornings building their own take-home wind and solar power projects. The camp is open to boys and girls between the ages of nine and 12.
G-Force (July 16-20): Open to girls ages 11 to 14. Campers have an opportunity to participate in activities that improve self-confidence, body image and inner strength.
Mini Ooks (running throughout July and August): This is a camp designed for our younger campers, with space for five and six year olds, as well as kids seven to nine. Camp activities include swimming and games, as well as arts and crafts.
Summer Volleyball Camp (Aug. 13-16): This is a special camp for kids whose families otherwise could not afford to send them to camp. The program stresses fun, fair play and participation. The camp was made possible through a $10,000 donation from the Butler Family Foundation.
