What are Geering Up camps about?

Geering Up camps are dedicated to the education of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to youth through innovative and interactive experiments, hands-on projects, design challenges, facility tours and more! Geering Up camps are taught by a group of experienced university students that have a passion for learning and education.



Geering Up camps are one week long (Monday – Friday) and run from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. We schedule a 30 minute recess and a 1 hour lunch break every day. Camps do not run on statutory holidays. Further, Before Care, After Care and the Lunch programs will not be offered at the Richmond camps. Please ensure that you pack your child snacks and a lunch and that you are available to pick-up and drop-off your camper during our camp hours.



What types of Camps do we offer at Richmond?

Our team of expert Curriculum Planners plan the curriculum for each program at the end of June. We do not send out exact schedules, as our camps are fluid and our instructors will often make a few curriculum adjustments to better fit each week’s camper needs. Generally speaking however, the activities done during the camps are different each year – so every summer, get ready for an exciting new week of learning!


Here is a complete list of programs that are available at our Richmond location. These are for campers between grades 2 to 7.
