St. Clair STEAM Summer Learning Camp
July 8 - July 26, 2019
We are excited to provide your child with experiences in science, technology, engineering, arts and math in the morning. Afternoons will be a combination of presentations or an excursion in the local community. We will be calling each class a “cabin”, and in each cabin there will be two “counselors” who are qualified teachers. An afternoon schedule for our daily experiences can be found on each camp's page. It is important to check this schedule nightly in order to be sure your child is prepared for camp the following day.
Connect With Us:
We will be using Twitter to tweet about the learning and fun happening at camp - follow our hashtag, #campstclair. No images of campers' faces will be tweeted as to ensure privacy.
For safety reasons, parents / guardians need to sign their camper in each morning and out again at the end of the day. School doors will be locked after 9.00 a.m. and unlock at 3:00.
Some students in the program may have allergies. Please avoid sending lunches with peanuts. For safety, we discourage the sharing of snacks from home - thanks for understanding!
Thank you for your commitment to the full three weeks of Summer Learning Camp. It is important that your child attends camp daily to maximize their experience and build new friendships. If your child is ill and unable to attend, please call your camp site to report the absence.
We look forward to our adventures over the next three weeks. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask any of the camp “counselors”.
Yours in Summer Learning,
the Summer Learning Camp Team

Grade 6 Design Your Future Camps
This camp is intended for students who are going into grade 7 in the fall who would benefit from an opportunity to further develop critical literacy skills in the context of working on school/community needs derived from student voice and data sources such as EDI, to develop a plan to have an impact on the health and wellbeing of their own school community in the fall. This camp requires a minimum student enrollment to run. If we have enough interest, we will run the sites below.
During the Design Your Future camp Students will:
- acquire knowledge about saving, spending, borrowing, and investing.
- develop skills in problem solving, inquiry, decision making, critical thinking, and critical literacy related to financial issues.
- develop skills and knowledge to take responsibility for managing a financial situation with confidence, competence, and a compassionate awareness of the world around them.
- use the design process to practice creating a range of projects that overcome specific design challenges.
- Design a plan for a future career path.
When: July 8 – July 18 (Monday to Thursday each week). 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
We will have two Design Your Future Camps:
- Holy Trinity, Sarnia
