VANCOUVER CAMPS

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.

“My Child had a great week meeting new friends, exploring various science and engineering concepts…but most of all they enjoyed making stuff.”
