The Eureka program focusses on providing campers with hands-on interactive activities that introduce them to the worlds of science and engineering. The weekly camp schedule features fun, innovative, and engaging exercises that inspire each camper.
In addition to enjoying practical science and engineering activities, campers also participate in recreational options, including:
- Co-operative Games
Each week of Eureka is highlighted by a Science/Engineering Olympiad on the final day.
Week #1 (July 4 – 7): Go With the Flow
Participants learn about water and the environment in fun and creative ways. We will explore the environment of our world, from the animal kingdom to green energy, in cool and exciting ways.
Week #2 (July 10 – 14): Out of the World
Get ready to soar off land and into whole new worlds! Outer space has so many different things to offer. We will explore other planets, alien life, rockets and airplanes.
Week #3 (July 17 – 21): The Machines – They’re Alive!
Learn more about robots that are slowly becoming more and more advanced (maybe even advanced enough to replace humans!). We will dive into technology and the human body and how they both work.
Week #4 (July 24 – 28): iSpy Science
Ever notice weird things in your daily life that you can’t explain? Chances are that there is some science involved in making it happen. We are going to learn all about the science that you don’t notice every day.
Support Science at Ryerson
The Faculty of Science is committed to providing Eureka camp experiences to children with financial need who would not otherwise be able to attend. A week at Eureka introduces a child to science and engineering. Campers meet new friends, learn new skills, and develop an appreciation for learning in a way that is unique to Camp.
These opportunities are not possible without the generosity of Camp families and community members. If you would like to make a donation to the Faculty of Science Eureka Summer Camp fund, please click here and scroll down to the “Donate” button. Donors receive a tax receipt for their contributions. Thank you for helping deserving kids to attend Eureka!
