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 5-9 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 8:00 am and pickups as late as 5:30 pm. We offer Monday pizza and Tuesday-Friday hot lunch options as well.

2017 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, Architecture and Math (STEAM) demand inquiry, connection, experimentation and exploration, and with these processes at play, there is an unpredictable product until the very end.

 

The 2017 weekly bilingual AcadeCamp STEAM experience has been enhanced this summer by:

  • Maker Faire Take-Home Projects
  • Project Showcase
  • Stamp-a-T-Shirt
  • Expert Guests
  • Songs, word play, experiments in French
  • Walking Distance Field Trips
  • Interconnected and Cumulative Play and Learning
  • K2 Martial Art Jiu-jitsu Class
  • Outdoor Activities
  • Collaboration with Junior Maker

Each week, a Maker Faire project is incorporated and campers will be challenged to design and build a take-home product that encompasses their learning in Science, Technology, Engineering, Architecture and Math (STEAM).  For mastering STEAM skills and showing positive attitudes, AcadeCampers will collect stamps which will be added to their complementary AcadeCamp T-shirts. How many can a T-shirt hold? In addition, expert guest speakers and walking distance field trips will engage the youngsters in real-world learning.

SUMMER 2017 SUMMER READING & WRITING PROGRAMME:

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

For students with reading and writing difficulties, we offer Orton Gillingham-based multisensory teaching sessions, in addition to the activities provided during our AcadeCamp or AcadeCoders sessions. The OG multisensory teaching 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 multisensory teaching sessions will take place within the 9:00 am – 4:00 pm camp day. For more information regarding summer reading enrichment, kindly contact Mary at 613-721-3872 or email us at info@acadecap.org.
