Service Description

In this camp, students will become mechanical engineers that have been hired to design the ultimate playground in their community. Playgrounds are packed full of simple machines such as levers, wheels and axles, inclined planes, and pulleys. In these lessons students will learn about the simple machines they encounter every day at the playground, while advancing their literacy skills through a variety of read alouds. They will tackle fun and engaging challenges while using the EFK Engineering Design Process. We can’t wait to play! This camp is geared for engineers aged 4-7, with activities that can be scaled in difficulty to suit student interest. We are excited to be partnering with North Kildonan United Church to offer a camp with plenty of time inside working on engineering projects and related arts and crafts, and plenty of time outside using NKUC's beautiful green space with games, sports, water toys, bouncers, and more! Camp runs Monday-Friday 9:00am-4:00pm with free early drop off at 8:30am and late pick-up to 4:30pm. One day drop-in option available on request- please email directly to inquire. Snacks and water are always available, but campers must bring their own nut-free lunch.
