YC Kid's Programs

Summer Camps and COVID-19 Response

While we're excited about our camps planned for this summer, we're also continuing to follow COVID-19 recommendations to understand implications for our programs. The safety of our participants and staff is our first priority. We will follow direction from the Public Health Agency of Canada and Yukon’s Chief Medical Officer of Health to ensure we do all we can to reduce exposure of those in our community.

Currently, we are preparing for summer camps in the hopes that they can go ahead. Registration remains open. As summer draws closer, we will re-evaluate camp plans based on the latest information. In the event that the camps are cancelled, a full refund will be issued.

We plan to provide you with another update at the end of April. If you have any questions in the meantime, please let us know.

YC Summer Camps 2020
Science • Technology • Engineering • Math • Trades

The Yukon College STEM and Trades Camps are designed to inspire children and youth across the Yukon through practicing in hands-on activities in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Trades (STEM). YC Kids Camps provide learning experiences through fun, engaging, culturally enriched programming that encourages children to explore their sense of wonder. Children are introduced to hands-on, exciting activities that promotes discovery, rewards curiosity, and leaves children amazed at what they can do. 

This summer we will be offering week-long STEM and Trades camps for children and youth aged 6-14 years of age, beginning June 15 and ending August 14. 

Head over to our booking engine, Amilia, to review camp descriptions, age groups, and dates to be ready for registration opening Monday, March 9th at 12pm.

The following programs are available for in-classroom STEM Training.  For more information regarding these please contract the Program Coordinators.

Junior Astronauts

Are your students excited by new challenges? Do they like to dream big? With help from the Canadian Space Agency and Yukon CubeSat, we are bringing space workshops to classrooms across Yukon to ignite youth’s interest. Educators can reach out to book a visit or receive resources to deliver their own activities.

Coding in the Classroom

Do you know a teacher who wants to integrate digital skills, coding, and design into their classes? Let them know we’d love to bring our tech party to their school!  Our mobile workshops include hands-on, engaging activities for students, using robots and computers to help communicate curriculum concepts.
