COVID-19 Notes
Unless directed otherwise by the Ministry of Health, we plan to still offer our Spring Break camps. We understand that for many families these camps provide child care during a time when school is not in session. In addition to the precautionary measures listed above, we will be sanitizing classroom surfaces and equipment in the morning, at lunch, and at the end of each camp day. All participants will also be required to wash their hands regularly, particularly both prior to and after consuming food at recess and lunch.
Please note that should you prefer to cancel your registration we are waiving all cancellation fees. Should you choose to cancel you will receive a full refund. By default we will be issuing requested refunds to the credit card used to pay for the program however if you would like to keep the refund on your account for use in a future Geering Up program please let us know.

Maker Camp

Welcome to the Geering Up’s Maker Camp! This camp will focus on the engineering design cycle through innovative projects, fun challenges, and creative problems. Join us for a week of problem solving and and innovation!

 

STEAM: Design and Create Camp – All-Girls

Our All-Girls STEAM program is an integration of Art and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math). This camp explores Science and Engineering, while integrating design and art. With lots of hands-on design projects and interactive challenges, our spring break STEAM camp will be a great way to spend the break.
At Geering Up we run all-girls programming because there is still a gender gap in most STEM fields. By creating a girl-focused space we hope to encourage and inspire the next generation of women in STEM and help to shrink that gender gap. We do have an inclusive view of the word “girl” and we welcome trans, genderqueer, and non-binary folks interested in this camp.
