Summer kids camps in full swing at NAIT
NAIT’s 2013 summer camps have begun, with many running until 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:
Street Performers (July 8-12): Campers take centre stage in this camp of drama, miming, singing, dance and tricks. Group games, team activities and swimming are also a part of the experience, which wraps up with a day trip to the Edmonton International Street Performers Festival. There are camps for seven to nine year olds and 10 to 13 year olds.
Mini Bakers (July 15-19, July 29 to Aug. 2 and Aug. 6-9) and Mini Chefs (July 15-19, July 22-26 and July 29 to Aug. 2): 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 16 years old.
Alternative Energy Camp (July 15-19): 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 those between the ages of 12 and 16.
G-Force (July 15-19): Open to girls ages 11 to 14. Campers have an opportunity to participate in activities that improve self-confidence, body image and inner strength. Highlights include participating in kickboxing, rock climbing, self defense, yoga and Pilates.
Summer Dance Intense (July 29 to Aug. 2 and Aug. 12-16): This is a new camp for 2013. Campers seven to 11 years old and 12 to 15 years old learn a variety of dance moves.
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.
