Young originals in the house
Summer camps will come roaring to life Tuesday, bringing as many as 700 children and youth — in Grades 1 to 12 — to SAIT each week throughout July and August.
"We've upped our offerings this year, with more than 100 unique camp experiences to choose from,” says Rozlynn Wick, Project Manager, Strategic Youth Initiatives, Learner and Academic Services. “And we’ve added 30% more total seats to our registration capacity.”
New programs include Adulting 101 — where participants look to the future while prepping in the present — a baking and culinary academy, a multi-sport camp and Exploring Trades – Autobody.
SAIT will also once again welcome 24 junior high school students from Meskanahk Ka Nipa Wit School, Montana First Nations. The group will be on campus during the first two weeks of July.
“We even have our first group of international campers joining us from Taiwan,” says Wick. “We’ll be connecting with more campers across SAIT this summer than ever before and that’s pretty exciting for us.”
Plus, some campers will have the added bonus of exploring the trades while discovering a few of SAIT’s satellite campuses.
“Our youth programming is designed to educate, empower and excite young people,” says Shan Robertson, Interim Associate Vice President, Learner and Academic Services.
"Last year was a record year for summer camps and registration numbers have increased again for 2019. We’re looking forward to growing youth programming at SAIT even more throughout the year."

Year-round programming for children and youth
While back to school may not be front of mind, registration will soon open for year-round programming for children and youth at SAIT.
Based on current summer camps offerings, SAIT hosts day camps during teachers' conventions, spring break and PD days for children and youth in Grades 1 to 12. Learn more
