School’s out for summer, but learning continues at RRC youth camps

May 24, 2019

Whoever said summer school was a drag clearly hadn’t heard of Red River College’s summer youth camps. For any child who dreams of building their own race car, or cooking like Canada’s next master chef, RRC has a number of fun-filled, hands-on camps returning 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,” says Christine Watson, RRC’s Vice-President, Academic.

“We’re thrilled to offer a variety of different camps throughout the summer months in our state-of-the-art facilities and taught by our industry-leading instructors.”

Each summer, the College week-long interactive learning experiences for students aged 10 to 14. This year, RRC is pleased to offer the following summer programs:

Design Camp
Look out, Jillian Harris! In this camp, kids from 10–14 will learn how to design their very own product or living space. Under the direction of two experienced designers, participants will have the option of designing their own Green room or perhaps a brand new product that is just waiting to be discovered.

Culinary Camp
Budding chefs (10–14) will learn from RRC culinary experts in our professional-grade kitchens at Paterson GlobalFoods Institute. From homemade macaroni and cheese to mouthwatering cinnamon buns, kids will experience the satisfaction of preparing food using quality basic ingredients. Your chefs will also learn about food science, kitchen safety and the art of meal presentation.

Girls Exploring Trades and Technology (GETT) Camp
RRC’s GETT Camp introduces girls (12–14) to a variety of career path in fields relating to applied skills and technology. GETT camps feature fun projects and interactive team activities that promote the importance of taking sciences, advanced math and industrial arts classes in high school.

Technology Exploration Camp (TEC) Camp
The College’s TEC Camp provides students (11­­–12) with a taste of engineering technology-related disciplines, through hands-on activities and demonstrations. Students will learn about mechanical engineering while building a model of a medieval catapult, work with robots, have fun with static electricity, and explore theory and safety.

“We’re 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,” says Watson.

Registration for RRC’s youth camps is now open.
