Create a memorable summer experience at our Carleton University-based STEM Academy. Youth explore hands-on projects and learn from passionate Carleton University STEM student instructors. Our curriculum is brand new each summer to ensure a relevant and engaging educational journey for every participant. 

Academy programs are offered in 1 week sessions, running from 9:15am to 3:15pm. We have a lunch break and an outdoor recess each day, with small breaks throughout. Extended care option (for an additional fee) allows drop-off from 8 a.m. and pick-up until 5 p.m.

Our Summer Academy stands apart from traditional summer camps by offering an emphasis on real-world applications and practical skill development. Our program features insights from industry professionals, providing participants with valuable exposure to various careers and university programs. We prioritize the cultivation of leadership skills and the development of essential soft skills, ensuring a holistic and impactful learning experience that goes beyond the ordinary summer camp setting.

STEM Girls* Academy is an inspiring and inclusive summer haven designed exclusively for girls eager to explore the realms of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) while building their leadership skills.

Engage in hands-on STEM exploration, led by two female instructors, build up leadership skills, and explore potential careers in STEM with our mentors. The STEM Girls Academy’s objective is to create an experience that is specifically designed to encourage more young women to pursue careers in STEM.

The STEM Girls Academy has an optional sleepover on Thursday night of camp. Girls will swim in the Carleton pool, eat in the residence cafeteria, watch movies, play games, and sleepover in residence with a roommate. Girls will then wake up for breakfast in the residence cafeteria and then head to camp for Friday’s activities (there is pizza lunch on Fridays!). The sleepover will be hosted by the instructors and they will be supervised the entire night and morning. More information will be emailed prior to the camp week!

*By saying girls, we recognize and welcome all self-identifying girls including cisgender and transgender girls and gender-diverse students in STEM. We also encourage and welcome Indigenous girls, racialized girls, and girls with disabilities.
