STEAM Skills Summer Camps

Home STEAM Skills Summer Camps

Registration is open!!

Several online skills-focused summer camps in science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) are being offered by Loyalist College through the social enterprise LAUNCH.  Designed for children entering grades one through eight, the one-week camps, incorporate STEAM subjects into everything from animation and architecture to creative storytelling, understanding laws of motion, and building rockets. Campers explore fun and interactive activities, guided by caring camp leaders, using materials from a customized gift box they receive in advance.

STEAM camps foster curiosity and inspire kids to explore the world around them in new and interesting ways.

Summer Camps include:


In this week-long adventure, campers explore all things slimy and squishy! We’ll make our own slime recipes and learn about slimy creatures on earth and why they need that slime to survive. Prepare to get gross on this adventure-filled week!

July 5-9 

Grades 1-3 and 4-6

Animation Creations  

Everywhere we look we see moving pictures…we call them videos, movies and TV shows. In Animation Creations, campers will explore the concept of persistence of vision and how toys and moving pictures use this principle to create motion we see.

July 12-16 

Grades: 4-5 and 6-8 

Best of STEAM  

Campers will discover all of the favourite STEAM activities and adventures. This is their chance to try a little bit of everything, meet LAUNCH coaches, and have lots of fun.

July 19-23 

Grades: 1-3 and 4-6 

Rube Goldberg Design Challenge  

In this week-long challenge, campers learn about simple machines, complex machines, laws of motion and design principles. They’ll work to create and test a masterful machine that accomplishes a seemingly easy task in the most complicated way possible.

July 26-30 

Grades: 4-5 and 6-8

Space Explorers  


From planets and rockets to stars, there are so many amazing things in space. Even though they can’t get on a rocket and fly into space, campers can build rockets to blast off at home, while learning about how NASA plans missions. Activities will include creating models, painting planets, and exploring constellations.

August 9-13 

Grades: 4-5 and 6-8

STEAM Stories  


Campers will explore STEAM through hands-on activities related to stories. They’ll unpack the role of STEAM within each story in a fun, creative way! Books and stories included.

Discover Meander 

Meander is the largest permanent living architecture sculpture in the world. This summer campers will discover the soaring, flowing installation of spheres, columns and canopies, suspended from the ceiling of a historic limestone factory along the Grand River. Through hands-on and team-building activities, they’ll explore connections between art and the natural world.
