Summer camps can show kids countless career opportunities
Get your kids to learn something new this summer
Every summer, Saskatchewan Polytechnic students and faculty host a number of summer camps for kids looking to learn a new skill or learn about a new career option they’ve never thought possible. These week-long camps are designed to help kids learn something new, develop their social skills and build their self-confidence. Camps are offered at Moose Jaw, Prince Albert, Regina and Saskatoon campuses and are available for children ranging from nine to seventeen years of age.
Camps with seats still open include:
GETT – Girls Exploring Trades and Technology
This camp provides girls from grade six to eight a chance to learn axle building, carpentry and computer design skills. Each girl gets a chance to learn how to properly and safely use tools to design and build a go-cart or a scooter.
Health Sciences Discovery Camp
This camp offers a great opportunity for your child to explore a variety of careers in the Health Sciences such as Paramedics, Medical Laboratory, X-Ray, Pharmacy Technician and Nursing. There are plenty of hands-on activities that take place in high-tech simulation labs.
Plan Program Play
Campers will explore the fundamentals of computer programming while creating and modifying simple games. The world of computer gaming and the computer game industry will also be discussed, investigating topics such as the skills needed to be a developer and indie game designer. We’ll be doing all new games this year, so if you coded with us last year we hope to see you again!
Money, Power, Respect Camp
This camp offers teens the opportunity to learn about money management, including how to create a budget, negotiation strategies, three reasons to save money and many more tips and tricks!
Selfie Approved Hair and Esthetics Camp
Your kids will learn some vital tips and get a sneak peek into the world of hairstyling and esthetics. They will have an opportunity to learn about skin care, makeup application and a variety of other activities outside and at the fitness centre.
Plus there’s camps in Italian cooking, graphic design, welding and many other skills! Registration space is limited for each camp, so if this is something you think your child would be interested in, it’s important to register soon. For more information, please visit: saskpolytech.ca/camps.
