SAIT Summer Camps Grow in PopularityCalgary, AB - New SAIT Summer Camps are catching the attention of the Calgary community, with over 1,500 campers signed up for sessions - an increase of more than 200 from last year.
Designed for youth in grades four to 12, nine new themes are among the 50 camps offered this summer. Go-Cart campers will learn automotive concepts and transportation trends by building their own go-cart, and Innovate and Re-create gets the creative juices flowing by making art from recycled materials.
"Campers can learn everything from first aid and survival skills, to digital movie making, to marketing and advertising," says Rozlynn Wick, Youth and Strategic Initiatives Coordinator with SAIT's Centre for Academic Learner Services. "The sheer variety of options makes it easy for parents and any campers to find something that will interest them."
Other new camps this summer include The Great Outdoors, where students will learn basic CPR and survival skills, and Girls' Jewelry Design, where campers will use crushed pennies and pop cans to make their own baubles.
New camps are joined by old favourites, including culinary camps in cooking and baking, and Weldasaurus, where campers will fashion their own metal dinosaur.
Many camps - business, culinary and web design - are inspired by offerings at SAIT schools, and are designed to help youth explore potential career options and education at SAIT.
The week-long SAIT Summer Camps run July 3 to August 17, from 9 am to 4 pm. Space is still available in many camps.
Young athletes also have an opportunity to enhance their skills this summer. SAIT Trojans Summer Sport Camps run August 7-31. Featured sports include hockey, basketball, and volleyball. Sport camp participants also get recreational swimming time at the aquatic centre.
