Mathletes by Saloni Dholakia

Interested in Sudoku? Love playing Monopoly? Enjoy the logic of a Rubik’s cube? Then this camp is for you! In this one-week program, you will work within a multi-age group to explore and create your own math games, puzzles, and more! We will spend time investigating the math behind our favourite games and even learn some new ones. You might be surprised where you can find math “hiding” in card games, board games, puzzles, and even whole-body games! Want to take your favourite game and redesign it with a twist? We will spend time creating and “upcycling” games to play with other groups. We’re looking forward to seeing all you mathletes this summer!

Is your tween itching for more independence? Give your budding adolescent experience with independent outings in the city so that they are safely equipped to venture out to Playland, the Aquarium, or a hike.

On Monday, students will generate a list of ideas/criteria for adventures for the rest of the week. They will do the research and planning to create an itinerary that complies with the criteria (and budget) for the rest of the week.

Ethical Debaters (Philosophy for Kids)
by Ariana Debreuil

Imagine this: A train is coming down a track that has 5 innocent people standing on it. There is a switch that makes the train turn onto the other track that has 1 innocent person standing on it. Do you flip the switch?

In this camp we aim to help children develop their reasoning and argumentative skills with an interactive approach. Students will explore ethics in a thought provoking and exciting manner while trying to understand how our society decides to make rules. Through the exploration of different social issues, students will work towards preparing for a final debate.
