Let your children’s creativity soar — DC’s Continuing Education summer camps return!

The sun is shining, the birds are singing and school is almost done. That could only mean one thing — it’s time for Durham College’s (DC) Summer Camps to get underway.

Offered through the School of Continuing Education, these week-long programs provide a fun, innovative and stimulating environment where children aged 7 to 14 can learn new skills while creating lifelong memories. All of the programs are offered at a beginner’s level to help expose campers to new and creative ways of expressing themselves.

For campers with an artistic flair, the art, drama, sewing, movie making and photography camps are a perfect fit as imagination and creativity are on display. Children will have the opportunity to learn new skills while making new friends and building their confidence.

If your camper’s creativity lies in the kitchen, then the new cooking camp, held at the Whitby campus’ new Centre for Food, will be a big hit. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from a professional chef while creating their own delicious midday meals and sweet treats that they can take home.

Finally, the various Lego® camps, which were created in partnership with Bricks 4 Kidz™, offer an ideal combination of learning and fun. Campers will learn about engineering, simple machines, architecture, mechanics and science in a hands-on, interactive environment completing weekly builds with a partner.

For children who have already experienced these camps, more advanced techniques and helpful tips are provided to further develop their skills. All camps run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with extended care and healthy meal plans available.
