2 Weeks | 2 Camps | 2 Themes

Week 1: Wild World

Let your creativity run WILD!

Explore the wonders of the animal kingdom and let it inspire you to create works of art with Crayola® Imagine Arts Academy!  Learn about many different animals and how wildlife conservationists are working to protect species around the globe.  Experiment with a variety of art techniques, and use Crayola® products to create frog paintings, ink-diffusion jellyfish, polar bear sculptures, and more!

Week 2: Doctors Detectives, & DNA

WARNING: We are mixing a high quantity of fun with science! Results may include having so much enjoyment, you won’t want the week to end!

Campers will use forensic science to solve a crime. A visit to Cell City will reveal the inner workings of DNA while a trip down the Organ Trail will provide a Body Portrait. Explore the wonders of gravity, balance and the science behind the illusive sweet spot. Build the strongest helmet for our friend Eggbert in our safe egg challenge. We will discover how to get a rainbow in a test tube and build a Potato Power Plant during a day of radical chemical reactions.

All Weeks: Multi-Sport Mornings

Don’t know what sport your child will like? No worries, they will play them all!

With our morning sports program hosted by Sportball Hamilton, your child will learn a new sport each day. They’ll build a wide set of transferable skills to be able to play each of our eight offered sports with confidence while having fun!  Every day of each of our two themed weeks features our multi-sport mornings.

Both weeks of Camp Activate are for children aged 6–12.

Drop-off is at 8:45 am and pick-up is at 4:15 pm.
