Sask Polytech promoting hands-on learning at summer camps
Hands-on and experiential learning the focus at Sask Polytech summer camps
July 23, 2019 – Saskatchewan Polytechnic is offering summer camps in Saskatoon this July and August for kids age five to 15. Led by faculty, students and alumni, Sask Polytech camps provide a safe and fun environment for kids to explore new interests, discover new talents and make new friends.
“Similar to our post-secondary programming, our camps place great emphasis on hands-on learning,” says Denise Hauta, director of Extension. “Campers learn new skills and get an introduction to exciting career paths they might not have considered previously.”
Sask Polytech’s camps include recreation, computer science and technology, cooking, community safety and trades. From campus activities to field trips, campers will learn plenty of new skills as they make new friends at our hands-on, experiential camps.
Media are invited to attend summer camps. Camps running the morning of July 24 include Chef’s Academy camp, Adventures and Athletics and Young Builders.
