Virtual AcadeCamp

57 0

This summer, AcadeCamp is taking a virtual approach to learning! Over the summer, we will dive into the iSTEAM world and discover different career possibilities supported by a variety of learning materials and experiences.

Our 8 week program runs from June 22nd to August 14th, and will be delivered online using Google Meet. Campers will have face-to-face instructional time with counsellors and complete a variety of guided and independent learning activities. AcadeCamp will run from 9am to 2pm every week day, giving campers plenty of time to enjoy the summer outdoors in the afternoon. Parents will be our partners in learning, as some activities will require parental guidance.

Each week, counsellors will send home a list of learning materials required for the week along with handouts that will need to be printed to complete certain activities. Here’s a sneak peek of some of the awesome learning activities we have planned this summer: 

  • Designing a tile pattern
  • Observing and recreating famous world structures
  • Researching and creating the best bubble solution
  • Creating a constellation finder to explore the stars
  • Analysing fingerprint patterns
  • Taste testing and discovering the best ice cream recipe 
  • Recreating ocean zones in a jar
  • And many more! 

 

We can’t wait to see you this summer!

Please note: We are monitoring the evolving situation and we are awaiting guidelines regarding in-person camp.

About The Author

My name is Shannon Neill and I am currently the Grade 1/2 teacher at AcadeCap. I began my teaching career in 2017 after graduating from McGill University with a Bachelor’s of Education, specialized in French Immersion Pedagogy. Since my first year of teaching, I have been working with Grade 1 and 2 students, from Montreal, to Winnipeg, and now Ottawa, where I have been with AcadeCap since 2018. Working with students in Grade 1 and 2 is definitely something special. The students are curious, honest and so willing to learn and share - I consider myself pretty lucky to be able to learn from my students every day!
