Winnipeg, MB – Whoever said summer school couldn’t be fun hasn’t heard of Red River College’s (RRC) summer Youth Camps. For any child who dreams of building their own racecar, or cooks like they are Canada’s next master chef – RRC has a number of fun-filled, hands-on camps back by popular demand this summer.
“Red River College takes great pride in being a valued member of the community. Summer camps are just one way we are able to introduce young people to many potential career paths in a way that is interactive, engaging, and most importantly – fun!” said Christine Watson, RRC VP Academic.
“We are thrilled to offer a variety of different camps throughout the summer months – many back by popular demand – in our state-of-the-art facilities, and taught by our industry leading instructors.”
Each summer the College opens its doors and welcomes school-aged students ages 10 to 14 on campus for weeklong interactive learning experiences. This year, the College is pleased to offer the following summer program list:
Look out Jillian Harris! In this camp children ages 10-14 will learn how to design their very own product or living space. Under the direction of two experienced designers, children will have the option of designing their own Green room or perhaps a brand new product that is just waiting to be discovered.
Budding chefs ages 10-14 will learn from RRC’s culinary experts in our professional-grade kitchens at Paterson GlobalFoods Institute. From home-made macaroni and cheese to mouth-watering cinnamon buns, in this popular camp children experience the satisfaction of preparing food using quality basic ingredients. Your chefs will learn about food science, kitchen safety and the art of meal presentation.
Girls Exploring Trades and Technology (GETT) Camp
GETT camp introduces girls ages 12 to 14 to applied skills and technology careers and encourages them to consider a variety of career choices. This camp features fun projects and interactive team activities that show young girls the importance of taking sciences, advanced math subjects, and industrial arts in high school.
Technology Exploration Camp (TEC) Camp
TEC provides students ages 11 to 12 with a taste of various engineering technology-related disciplines through hands-on technology activities and demonstrations. Students will build a working model of a medieval catapult and learn about mechanical engineering, work with robots, have fun with static electricity, and learn about theory and safety.
“We are excited to give children the opportunity to discover their love for technology, the trades, and the creative and culinary arts. We hope to see many new faces as well as our returning campers this year, and welcome many of them down the road as Red River College students,” said Watson.
