North Delta Camps

Registration for Camps 2019 is now OPEN!!!

This year Geering Up will be offering our week-long science & engineering day camps in North Delta! Join us for the same exciting and engaging STEM activities offered in a new location. 

We will be running two camps per week from July 8th – August 23rd including our general STEM camps, STEAM, and codemakers camps!

Geering Up camps are all about making Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math or STEM for short, hands-on and exciting. Each day is a dynamic mix of interactive activities, demonstrations, tours, mentors, and design challenges. Our camps are taught by experienced university students with a passion for their field of study. In addition to all of this, we ensure each camper spends, at least, one hour of each day participating in active games outside.

Location

This year our camps will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church! The address is 11040 River Rd, Delta, BC V4C 2S2.

Camp Descriptions

The activities done at camp are different each year. Our team of Instructors plan the curriculum at the end of June. We don’t send out exact schedules, as our camps are fluid and our instructors tailor each week to the campers. The table below should give you a good idea of the activities we do in each camp!

We bring in mentors at least once for each camp, and our camps include a wide range of science and engineering topics. We avoid repeat activities that have occurred in the recent past to avoid kids experiencing the same camp year to year – so every summer, get ready for a brand new week of science and engineering!

Note: Unfortunately, we do not provide Pizza Fridays or Girls Only programming in North Delta as of now.

Note: Unfortunately, we do not provide Before care or After care in North Delta as of now.
