About this camp

Brock Youth University
 

Youth University programs invite young people to explore unique interests in a collaborative and fun community atmosphere. In this safe environment, young people have the opportunity to explore, take risks, share, learn and develop key 21st century skills. We inspire kids in all program areas through: day trips, overnight trips, summer & March camps, and after-school programs.


The Our Kids review of Brock Youth University

 

“These are really just foundational skills,” says Kate Cassidy, director of Brock Youth University. “Developing these skills doesn’t start at 18, it starts when they’re much younger,” though they are what employers will be looking for when the campers have grown, left camp, and begin entering their careers. Cassidy uses the term ‘skills,’ though they’re not in the same league as, say, words keyed per minute or languages spoken. They’re the tools that these people use to put themselves forward, communicate their talents and their ideas, respond to hard times, and create positive interactions in the world. And, as great as the instructors and the programs are—and, to be sure, they’re great—the perspective that Cassidy takes is that they are a vehicle for learning some of the more important things including self-awareness, communication skills, problem solving and getting along well with others. And, ultimately, that’s where the Brock programs really shine. It’s a unique opportunity for kids to grow interests, and much else.

What gets your child excited? What kind of environment brings out the best in him or her? We think you will find these answers at Youth University. From climbing on our high-ropes course to experimenting in university science labs; from designing a creation for our 3D printer to building the set for a group performance; we have over 60 different camp themes and experiences to choose from this summer. Couple this with attention to soft skill development, an atmosphere built on care, and university-aged staff mentors who love kids and having fun and your child’s experience at Youth University is sure to be one they will always remember.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Endless Possibilities expand

Throughout this week I have learned a lot about myself. I originally signed up for the YU Leaders program to become a volunteer for camps but through it I have come to realize I don't have to stop at that. I can go beyond with the skills I have learned and what I have experienced at camp. It has really opened my eyes to the opportunities out in the world and I have decided that I am going to become a teacher for Jk, Sk, and grades 1-3. I have met a lot of friends and great people, both campers and staff. Camp has really changed my life.

Happy Campersexpand

The smile on my daughter's face at the end of the day says it all.  Camp gets her moving and thinking and meeting new people! Each day she is exited to tell me all that she accomplished.  A happy kid makes a happy mom!

Growth Mindsetexpand

I love that the staff training involved growth mindset! I think it is really important for leaders to talk about their own learning experiences with the kids as really look up to them as role models. My child asked her leader about his undergrad and it developed into a really interesting conversation about post-secondary education and other learning opportunities for young people.
