College of the Rockies going full STEAM ahead with summer camps

Posted on
College of the Rockies is offering STEAM Camps at its Cranbrook and Fernie campuses this summer with options available to suit children aged 6 to 12.

Camps will be fun explorations of science, technology, engineering, art, and math

Cranbrook children between the ages of 6 and 12, and Fernie kids aged 9 to 12, can have fun taking their learning to new heights with College of the Rockies hands-on STEAM Camps.

“After successfully offering Spring Break STEM Camps, we are looking forward to new camps this summer, including a camp designed specifically for budding artists,” said Paul Tiege, Manager, Applied Research and Innovation. “We’re excited to also be able to offer a Camp in Fernie for the first time.”

Cranbrook Camps will run as follows:

·         July 11 to 15: Mad Scientist, The Art Factory, or Outdoor Education and Adventure Fun Camps

·         July 18 to 22: Inside, Outside, Upside Down Games; Mad Scientist, or The Art Factory Camps

·         July 25 to 29: Creative Maker, STEAM Sample Electric Piano, and Outdoor Education and Adventure Fun

The Fernie campus’ STEAM Sampler LED Clock Camp will run from July 18 to 22 and provide participants with the opportunity to build their very own LED Clock.

“Though each Camp has a STEAM-related focus, these Camps will be so packed with fun, the participants won’t even know they are learning,” Tiege said.
