Summer Camps

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 S.T.E.A.M. camp for ages 4-9 and a coding & robotics for children in grades 3 and up. 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 8:00 am and pickups as late as 5:30 pm. We offer Monday pizza and Tuesday-Friday hot lunch options as well.

2020 ACADECAMP

 

AcadeCamp is an innovative, science-themed summer programme allowing campers ages 4-9 to experiment, ask questions, and get messy, tout en français. Science, Technology, Engineering, Architecture/Arts and Math (STEAM) demand inquiry, connection, experimentation, and exploration.

Each week, the Friday Afternoon Project Showcase challenges AcadeCampers to find an innovative way to summarize and present what they have learned in STEAM.

The theme this year is “Careers in STEAM”.

SUMMER 2020 SUMMER READING & WRITING PROGRAMME:

Daily Orton Gillingham Literacy Teaching Sessions for Campers (4 weeks)

For students with reading and writing difficulties, we offer Orton Gillingham-based Systematic Literacy Teaching (SLT) sessions, in addition to the activities provided during our AcadeCamp or AcadeCoders sessions. The OG Systematic Literacy Teaching (SLT) sessions will be offered for 1 hour, 5 times a week (4 times a week 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. With the Orton Gillingham approach, a student learns using the visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile senses simultaneously.  The OG Systematic Literacy Teaching (SLT) sessions will take place within the 9:00 am – 4:00 pm camp day. For more information regarding summer reading enrichment, kindly contact Linda at 613-721-3872 or email us at info@acadecap.org.
