Hands-on fun at NAIT summer kids camps
Activities all summer at Main Campus for campers as young as five
NAIT’s 2015 summer camps have begun, with many running until the end of August. Campers as young as five and as old as 18 will participate in hands-on activities in the areas of culinary arts, science and technology, leadership and more.
Here are some highlights:
Mini Chefs (July 6-10, July 13-17, July 20-24 and July 27-31) and Mini Bakers (July 27-31, Aug. 4-7 and Aug. 10-14): 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.
G-Force (July 13-17): 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 kickboxing, rock climbing, self-defence, yoga and pilates.
Sport Olympics (July 20-14 and Aug. 17-21): Every day campers will participate in an Olympic team sport (including volleyball, basketball and soccer) with a tournament in the afternoon.
Get Set Camp (July 21-23): Girls ages 11-14 explore the world of science engineering and technology. Campers build a robotic bug, a simple motor and more, while gaining experience in electronic component placement and soldering.
Summer Dance (July 27-31 and Aug. 10-14): In this camp, girls and boys seven to 11 years old and 12 to 15 years old learn a variety of dance moves.
