    The Our Kids review of STEM Camp

    our take

    The simplest definition of STEM is that it’s an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. But, as with so many things, the simplest definition doesn’t really do the object justice. The acronym really does refer to those disciplines, but STEM instruction is about much more, namely using those disciplines as a foundation for building a range of literacies while engaging collaboratively and thinking creatively. While we tend to think first of the stuff—the 3D printers and the makerspaces—STEM is more accurately thought of as a way of learning about the world, and of learning to work effectively with others. That’s what inspires passion in instructors, just as it did for STEM Camp founder, Kevin Cougler, who started the camps in 2013. To say that it’s been successful is an understatement. The camps are now run in nearing 50 locations, with 20 more likely soon to follow. In 2017, there were 8500 campers enrolled, and certainly that number has continued to grow in the summers since. What makes this program particularly unique is that it’s run as a not-for-profit solely to promote the benefits of STEM instruction in the lives of young people. There are francophone projects, as well as those mounted in First Nations communities. For all involved, the participants get to work hands-on, with their peers, on projects that are fun while also developing core learning and collaboration skills.

      Transcript of our interview with Kevin, Executive Director

      What is unique about STEM Camp?

      I guess what makes Stem Camp unique is our approach to learning. So what I mean by that is that traditionally in the classroom, we teach children by giving them instructions. So you sit at your desk, and if we're doing an experiment, here's step one, here's step two, etc. And a lot of people can learn that way, which is great. But the secret sauce to Stem Camp is that we want kids to be curious, and we want them to use their imagination.

      So we adopt inquiry-based learning, which means that we have an end goal in mind. So if the end goal is, let's say, to build a solar-powered car, we give them parts and tools and some basic knowledge about solar power. And then we say, “Go and see if you can find out you know how to do this. Our instructors will be there to help you along the journey.”

      But we don't give you all of the answers upfront. We let you discover those on your own. And by doing that, we think that our campers have a much more enjoyable experience because they're prouder of their accomplishments.

      What type of child is successful at STEM Camp?

      Kids that like some freedom to explore and discover. We’re also eager to have girls join STEM camp. But if you have a child that is really curious about the world around them and they're not afraid to make a mess and get dirty and clean up and play around with experiments, they would really thrive in our environment.

      Is your schedule structured or is it more open?

      How boring would it be if you came to a camp where it was all structured all day long? STEM Camp is not about structure. We certainly have some guidelines that we give our counsellors, and we have some words of advice to them on how they can run different projects throughout the day. But we want to give the opportunity to kids that when they're excited about something, they can continue doing it So, for instance, if you have a child that, for whatever reason, is really gravitating toward robotics, and the time allotment for robotics activity is up after 45 minutes, you can let them continue working on robotics for longer to enable them to pursue their passion.

      If you make them move to the next activity, that can be really discouraging. So we build in an elective structure in which kids have a say in what they get to do. Part of the magic of STEM Camp is that if you really enjoy something, you can keep doing it. And maybe in the future, your child will grow up to work in robotics because they've been allotted extra time to work in this area.

      We want to create these environments for these kids to find out what they really like and what they're really good at, and then encourage them to continue with that much later on in their education and career path.

      How do you keep campers engaged?

      I want to say it's a little bit of magic, it's a little bit of luck, and it's a little bit of a secret sauce, too. And I always answer this question by telling my own story. My own story is you go through the school system and you're kept at your desk, and that's pretty much how you spend your day. But how boring is that? I would misbehave in class because I was sitting at my desk and I would chat away with the other kids.

      And ultimately, that wasn’t great for my learning. So what we try to tell our counsellors and staff is you have to find out ways to discover what makes these kids tick. What are they interested in? Can we keep them active? And how do we keep them active?

      If you don't keep them active, keep them engaged, and keep them inspired through imaginative and creative programming, then you're going to have behavioural problems and you're going to have to address those. And it's summertime: Parents don't want to have to address those. And neither do we. So we keep them inspired, keep them having fun. While STEM camp is educational, it’s not run like a classroom. It's about 99% fun. Whatever we're doing has to be fun. And if you can put a child in a situation where they're having fun and they're meeting friends, that's a great result.

      What do campers value most about their experience at STEM Camp?

      The kids, they just want to have an environment where it's not school; it's the summertime. So they don't want to be sitting in a classroom environment. They want to be outside in the sunshine or in the shade. And so we encourage our counsellors to get the kids outside as much as possible. That's great. So the way that we try to provide some value for kids is to let them have fun all day long, not just during recess or lunchtime.

      What message do you have for new campers?

      If you're coming to STEM Camp for the first time, what you need to be prepared for is an opportunity for you to be who you are. So, if what you really like is grabbing 15 things and trying to figure out how to do something, we will give you the opportunity to do that. What's really important is that at summer camp, you have to be free to make messes and make your spills and be that scientist who’s got the lab coat on with the glasses and trying things out. It’s okay to be as messy as possible, as long as you're having fun and learning something at the same time.

    Director's Message

    Kevin Cougler, Founder
    B.A., V.C.E., Coach, Triathlete, Youth STEM Advocate

    STEM education is important. It is estimated that 90% of Canada's future will require STEM education but there's a problem. We just don't graduate enough kids to actually fill these jobs now or in the future. I started STEM Camp in 2013 to address this problem by creating a fun learning environment for kids to learn STEM. It is my hope they will be amazed, be curious, be confident and mostly have fun with the STEM activities we create.

    Lastly, an appeal to parents if I may. PLEASE enroll your girls. Canada desperately needs more girls interested in STEM.

    Thanks for thinking about STEM Camp - have a great summer!

    • STEM Camp COVID Plan Ahead of the Curve for Safety in 2021

      When does summer camp planning begin and when should STEM Camp COVID protocols for next summer start? A lot of people would be surprised to learn that STEM Camp starts planning for summer camp the day after camp is over the previous summer. In a typical year STEM Camp would lock in its 40-60 sites through meetings, site visits, negotiations, etc. starting in the fall. The rest of the fall is spent on operations review and making improvements for next year including activity development and recruiting between 300 and 600 summer staff.

      This year though there was a new task – that of preparing the Return to Camp guidelines document in preparation for the summer of 2021. To get a head start, STEM Camp Founder, Kevin Cougler, formed an expert committee comprised of one doctor, two nurses and two elementary school teachers. It took two months to fully research and develop the guidelines and Cougler expects more edits will be forthcoming as the pandemic situation evolves. The document was further vetted and approved by legal and insurance organizations.

      “I am extremely confident that the document developed, based on the health expertise of our health consultants and the real life experience of teachers in elementary schools every day, is an excellent plan to help keep children and their families as safe as possible while at STEM Camp in 2021.”

      As part of the plan STEM Camp is planning on hiring a health and safety coordinator at each of its locations tasked with ensuring regular hand washing is taking place, social distancing is being observed, protocols are being followed by staff, campers and parents, and materials are being disinfected regularly.

      “I believe that our plan calls for even more safety precautions to be followed than the school system and I will be sending my own child to STEM Camp this summer”. 

      Cougler believes STEM Camp was one of the first summer camps in Ontario to develop a plan for the summer of 2021 and has shared the plan with other summer camps to help them develop their own protocols.

      You can download the most recent Return to Camp guidelines document on our FAQ page.

    • Women in STEM: Biologist Samantha Yammine

      Our featured Woman in STEM is Samantha Yammine, a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Molecular Genetics at the University of Toronto. A lot of people use social media to talk about their passions; well, so does Yammine, who loves to share her discoveries on her Instagram page.

      Her academic research is focused on studying the brain cells. In her words, “I study brain development and stem cell biology; in particular, the lineage relationships of the earliest cells of the brain during development, and how stem cells maintain the adult brain and can be activated for repair.” Samantha is developing her research under the supervision of renown scientist Dr. Derek van der Kooy.

      Like many scientists, she started her interest in science when she was a kid. At first, she thought she would be a chemist since she always loved chemical reactions. But later on, she was fascinated with the human brain, and when she was 14 years old, she already knew she wanted to pursue neuroscience studies. 

      Her research, her speech abilities and most of all her passion about STEM, has opened a lot of incredible doors for her. She has teaching experience from high school to University, she is a very requested speaker and appeared on TV as a guest science expert in various programs. 

      Yammine has a piece of advice for girls interested in STEM: “don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something if that’s what you want. Sometimes the number one thing that holds us back is ourselves, so beware of any depreciation or ego that might be weighing you down internally. If people try to drag you down, replace them with others who are wise enough to be champions for you because you deserve more champions and less haters”. Well said Samantha Yammine, STEM Camp agrees completely!

      Don’t miss the opportunity to nurture your curiosity and passion about STEM. Learn more HERE.

    • Women in STEM: Simone Charron

      Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) have a massive impact on society’s welfare and development. Simone Charron found her chance to make a positive impact on the world through her career as an engineer.

      As a student at Carleton University, she participated in impactful programs like Engineers Without Borders Canada. “I liked the idea that a background in engineering could bring value to projects that are outside the traditional engineering box”, said Charron.

      As a Project Officer working at Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, Charron has had many challenges during her career. She worked on the sustainability portfolio of the Canadian High Arctic Research Station (CHARS) project in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut. Established


      in 2007, CHARS is a world-class hub for science and technology research in the Arctic, which brings an enhanced level of research and analysis to Canada’s North.

      When Charron started this project, she was completing her last co-op placement as a student. She credits this project for keeping her interested and challenged by engineering when she faced doubts about her career. Moreover, she had opportunities to impact other students by mentoring them through their co-op experiences.

      Simone is an inspiration for those who want to leave a legacy and use STEM as a tool to do so. There are so many opportunities to be discovered and so many inspirational moments to be discovered. The world needs people like Simone Charron!

      Don’t miss the opportunity to expose your children to STEM by providing them with a fun and unique summer camp experience at STEM Camp. Learn More.

    • Fact or Fiction Week

      Each year, STEM Camp offers 4 different themes that will guide children’s imagination, curiosity and sense of wonder through the summer. One of the 2018 themes is Fact or Fiction and we are super excited about what we will learn together during this week.

      The Fact or Fiction Week will be full of wild and crazy (but really cool) stuff in the world of STEM that may be fact or may be fiction such as beavers being relocated by parachutes or the existence of quicksand. Campers will be challenged to build or re-create the parachutes and the quicksand and through these challenges, determine for themselves what is fact and what is fiction!

      We see so many intriguing things on movies, cartoons and the internet. Are they real? Are they possible? Are they a fact or a fiction? There is no better way to know than to test it! 

      Here is a challenge to get you warm while you wait for Fact or Fiction week at STEM Camp:

       ➡️➡️ Have you ever heard that cows' gas (that's right...gas) are largely responsible for global warming? You tell us. Is that fact or fiction? Go to our Facebook page and share what you discovered with us, we are curious!!! ⬅️⬅️


      We still have a spot for you, hurry and enrol today at stemcamp.ca

    • STEM Camp looking for girls to help with Dragons’ Den pitch

      February 16, 2018 (Embro, ON) — Canada’s largest educational summer camp is looking for exceptional girls between the ages of 5 and 13 to help in an audition for CBC’s the Dragons’ Den.

      On March 7, 2018, STEM Camp will be auditioning for CBC’s Dragons’ Den in Waterloo, Ontario. As part of their pitch, STEM Camp is providing an opportunity for a girl between the ages of 5 and 13 to assist with their audition.  The lucky winner (plus a parent or legal guardian) will have the opportunity to participate in the “pitch’” and ultimately a chance to appear on the Dragons’ Den (if selected by CBC).

      STEM Camp is a not for profit with a mission to inspire youth in the science, technology, engineering and mathematical (STEM) fields of study by providing fun activities in these subject areas at their summer camp (located at 77 locations across Ontario and Quebec).

      If selected by CBC to appear on the Dragons’ Den, the lucky winner has an opportunity to be viewed by millions of viewers across Canada as a “girl in STEM”; thereby encouraging other girls to participate in STEM Camps in their area, or in STEM-related activities themselves. This is part of STEM Camp’s commitment to finding ways to increase the number of girls who are inspired to enter into STEM education, and ultimately STEM-based careers.

      STEM Camp CEO and Founder, Kevin Cougler, says that the statistics regarding women in STEM education are alarming.  He notes that a 2013 study published by Statistics Canada revealed that most university STEM graduates are men. “STEM Camp is constantly looking for ways to change that trend, and was formed as a not- for- profit that same year to address the issue,” he says. Through initiatives such as this, STEM Camp’s ratio of boys to girls attending summer camp continues to make gains toward gender parity which continues to make gains each year.

    • STEM Camp and Canadian Space Agency Team Up

      January 5, 2018 (Embro, ON) — Canadian not for profit summer camp provider, STEM CampTM, is teaming up with the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) to bring exciting space activities to STEM CampTM during the summer of 2018.

      Here’s a sneak preview of what we are developing thus far as well as some super resources that parents have access to online.

      Ask an Astronaut! – Throughout the spring of 2018 we will be asking STEM Camp parents, via social media channels, to submit questions from their children attending STEM Camp this summer for a Canadian astronaut to answer. STEM Camp will share his or her responses this summer across all 77 locations via video. For more information on Canada’s active astronauts you can learn more here.

      Canadian Space Inventions – Did you know there have been several Canadian inventions for space, not just the Canadarm and the Canadarm2?  One of them is the new AstroSkin, which is a smart shirt for space that is headed for the International Space Station in 2018.  Learn more about AstroSkin here. And learn about other Canadian space inventions here.

      At-Home Activities – The Canadian Space Agency has a wonderful list of at-home activities for parents and children to do together.

      Space Weather – We hear about the weather in our local towns and we hear about events that affect different regions of planet Earth. But we don’t spend a lot of time looking at how space weather affects our own weather. Did you know you can access the Canadian Space Agency’s AuroraMAX site which broadcasts the aurora borealis live from Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, during the aurora season?

      Predictions are made using the following websites:





      And check out the CSA’s Facebook and Twitter accounts for alerts when the aurora are visible.

      Canadian Space Agency activities will take place during the Space Week.
