How to Choose the Best STEM Summer Camp For Your Child?

As the end of the school year winds down, savvy parents know to place their children in summer  camp activities. It’s a great opportunity for your children to spend a week learning a new skill while having fun at the same time. They’re also extremely convenient for parents that need child-care options for their children so they can run errands, work, or relax. At Coded-Minds, we offer a wide range of engaging and exciting camps for children aged 5-14 at two locations in the Calgary area, the only difficulty is choosing which one to take! 

Start with your child’s interest 

As a parent, you know your child best. Look for summer camps that speak to the things they like to do. Do you have a gamer? Why not try Code Your Own Video Game where they’ll learn the ins and outs of video game design and finish the week with a video game of their own. Into Minecraft? We have two camps Minecraft Mania and Minecraft Modding which will take your child’s interest in Minecrafting and convert it into STEM skills that will set them up for success in the future. There’s also camps for those that want to learn about Wearables, Mars Missions, Roblox and much more! 

Location, Location, Location

Summer is a time to relax, and no child wants to spend their time getting driven to a far off camp, no matter how much they enjoy it. Luckily, Coded-Minds has two locations, giving you more convenience (and saving long and stressful commutes). Our NW location is conveniently located next to the University of Calgary at the Alastair Ross Technology Centre. It has ample parking, and proximity to the LRT (which is helpful for some of our older campers who have the option to take transit into the program). If you live in the south, we also run camps out of Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School which is easily accessible from Macleod Trail South. 

Find the right discounts

Savvy parents know the value of a good deal and take advantage of it when they come around. The best way to stay in the know is to follow Coded-Minds on social media!

At Coded-Minds we have a large selection of camps that you can choose for your child to make sure they have an unforgettable summer.
