We offer a variety of spring break and summer camps to introduce youth to coding, engineering principles, neuroscience basics and general science concepts. Our camps emphasize the applications of STEM in everyday life and serve to encourage all students to develop confidence in their abilities and understanding.

COVID – 19 Update

At this time, all events are subject to UBC Okanagan policies and procedures as well as provincial health recommendations in response to COVID -19. If camps are cancelled due to COVID-19, refunds (minus credit card fees) will be provided. Please note that registrants will be barred from participating if they display any symptoms (cough, runny nose, fever, etc). Our staff are taking all precautions to keep participants safe and to minimize the spread of the virus while also providing an engaging environment to explore STEM.

Spring and Summer Camps 2022

iSTAND is pleased to present STEM programming for ages 5-12!

Camps will be one week long, and run from 9-4 daily, with early drop off and late pick up available for an additional, nominal fee. Lunches and snacks are required.

Each week, a new selection of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), learning activities ranging from neuroscience to coding will be provided.  Participants will engage in hands on learning, physical activity, and full days built around science exploration.  Some examples of themes within each day include: space, technology, color, engineering, human systems, sound, and so on. Learners will receive short lessons covering the background and basics of a principle, followed by a hands-on activity to demonstrate the applications and implications of the topic.

Intergenerational STEM events

This drop-in style camp will be held at the Multi-Generational Activity Centre in Lake Country, between 9-12 or 1-4 on each day. This event provides caregivers and youth the opportunity to explore the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through hands-on activities!

Exploration at your own pace allows for pairs to connect with each other and enjoy some hands-on STEM learning activities.

This camp is being offered as part of the Embrace Aging FREE activities in March. Registration helps us to plan for activities, however, the event is also open to the public to stop by and enjoy.
