Mini-university (8 - 14 years)
A true university experience! Session A and Session B each offer exciting possibilities, as our university students teach campers in a fun and creative way. Not only will they learn in the campus classrooms and labs, but they will also be able to use the SFU sport facilities, including gyms, fields, and the pool. Individual classes on each subject will be held each day. Large group projects/productions that involve ALL subjects and all age groups will take place each day. Approximately two hours of recreation time will be included.
PSYCHOLOGY: This will be based on theories around thought and behaviour (evolution and the environment, the human brain, sensation and perception, etc.).
Explore marine life, forests and land creatures.
COMMUNICATIONS and MEDIA:
Work with other campers to build a media empire. Create your own tv show and movie ideas, design your own newspaper and learn all about the media world.
NOTE: No camp on Jul 1 or Aug 5 due to the statutory holidays.
CRIMINOLOGY: Learn some of the skills the experts use to solve crime (ie. Learning how to take fingerprints).
CHEMISTRY: Discover the science and reactions of the molecules that surround us. (e.g. build a volcano and make it erupt).
BUSINESS AND MARKETING: Come learn the tricks and trades of the business world. Work with a team of campers to create your own company and use your skills to organize a camp-wide bake sale, among other business saavy ideas.
