Ryerson Science Engineering Toronto Day Camps

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.

Eureka is offered in partnership with the Departments of Science and Engineering. Each camp program is facilitated by Ryerson Summer Day Camps staff with science and engineering students.

Each week of the Eureka program features science and engineering activities designed around a distinct theme:

Week 1: Destination Earth

Participants in the camp will get to 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: I Like to Move It!

Swoosh! In the future things are going to be moving faster than ever. Let’s discover the forces that guide motion and the way different materials move in the strangest ways.

Week 3: Machines R Us

Learn more about robots that are slowly becoming more and more advanced, maybe even advanced enough to replace humans. We will explore machines all around us, we might even explore machines within us!

Week 4: Wonders of the World

Have you ever looked around and wondered how things you use every day came to be? Chances are you are not alone, scientists and engineers have explored basic principles to help build your day to day world.

In addition to enjoying practical science and engineering activities, campers also participate in recreational options, including:

  • Dodgeball
  • Co-operative Games
  • Soccer
  • Volleyball
  • Basketball

Each week of Eureka is highlighted by a Science/Engineering Olympiad on the final 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!
