School might be over, but the learning continues.

Learn more about our Summer Camps

Learning never stops at Academie de la Capitale! Every summer, we open our doors to everyone by offering 2 different summer day camps: a science-themed camp for ages 4-8 and a software coding camp for ages 6-14. Our camps combine indoor learning activities and outdoor play. As part of our weekly programming, we engage campers in jiu-jitsu once a week.

The day camps operate from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday to Friday (except on holidays), with a morning and afternoon supervision option that allows for drop offs as early as 7:30 am and pickups as late as 5:30 pm. We offer Monday pizza and Tuesday-Friday hot lunch options as well.

ACADECODERS

 

AcadeCoders is an eight week Minecraft, robotics, software coding and design camp being offered in the summer for ages 6-14. This year, AcadeCoders will run from June 27 to August 19.

Our curriculum is developed by the AcadeCap STEM team and will be delivered by computer science specialists. Each day will involve learning new concepts, working on projects, and outdoor activity for a well -balanced camp experience. Each week features a different coding language, as well as Minecraft EDU and robotics. Advanced programming, such as Bootstrap and Sass, and more challenging activities will be available for students who participated in last year’s AcadeCoders. New for this year is Raspberry Pi during the Robotics and Artificial Intelligence week (August 8-12).

 

 

ACADECAMP

 

AcadeCamp is an innovative, science-themed summer programme allowing campers from ages 4-8 to experiment, ask questions, and get messy, tout en français. Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) demand inquiry, connection, experimentation and exploration, and with these processes at play, there is an unpredictable product until the very end.

 

New for summer 2016, AcadeCamp is introducing Jr. Coders, a special week full of coding activities for the AcadeCamp age group. AcadeCampers will learn coding basics through Scratch.

NEW SUMMER READING ENRICHMENT 2016:

Daily reading enrichment option for 4 consecutive weeks (1 hour sessions every day)

For students with reading and writing difficulties, we offer multisensory-based teaching and learning method based reading enrichment, in addition to the activities provided during our AcadeCamp or AcadeCoders sessions. The reading enrichment will be offered for 1 hour, 5 times a week (or 4 times during holiday weeks), and the participant must register for at least 4 weeks, or preferably all summer, in order for the programme to be effective. If a student has not been evaluated previously, pre- and post- testing will be provided. The reading enrichment is a program that is based on the Orton-Gillingham approach, in which a student learns using the visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile senses simultaneously. For more information regarding summer reading enrichment, kindly contact Mary at 613-721-3872 or email us at info@acadecap.org.
