What are Geering Up camps about?

Geering Up camps are all about making Science Technology and Engineering hands-on and exciting. Each day is a dynamic mix of hands-on 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.

 

Working in partnership with Family Services of the North Shore and North Shore Neighbourhood House, our North Vancouver camp location strives to make STEM education accessible for all on the North Shore! In addition, a free community BBQ event was hosted for all families of North Vancouver camp attendees in 2019. You can click here to see 2019’s poster for more details.

 

What types of Camps do we offer at North Vancouver?

 

North Vancouver currently offers camps to campers entering Grade 3 and up! The activities done at camp are different each year. Our team of expert Curriculum Planners 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.

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!

Please note that Before Care, After Care and Lunch Program are not offered at our North Vancouver location.

 

Location
This year our camps will be held at Community House of the North Shore Neighbourhood House! The address is 113 E 3rd St, North Vancouver, BC V7M 2G2.
