IDEA MEASURES: Your health and safety is our priority!

1. We're sanitizing everything on our campus upon arrival (door handles, toilet handles, water fountains, sink knobs, tables, chairs) and de at departure. Hands will be washed frequently throughout the day and when switching classes.

2. To ensure your health and safety we are doing forehead temperature checks upon entrance. Anyone with a temperature of 99 degrees will be sent home. There would be zero tolerance for any cold/flu-like symptoms including allergies.

3. We will require pick-up and drop-off of children outside of the campus to minimize health risks, unless there is a legitimate need for you to enter.

4. We are only running classes with smaller capacity students (10:1, or 8:1 at the very smallest).

5. All students must register ahead of time to ensure you have a spot when arriving onto campus. A table is set for check ins/check-out.

6. We're keeping social distancing a priority - students will sit every other chair and there won't be direct touch/play with other students

7. Food Sharing is not going to be allowed.

8. Our floors and tables are re-designed for dictated traffic flow and workspace.

9. Washroom/water fountain use will be one at a time. We suggest to bring a water bottle to avoid using the fountain.

10. Our staff will be wearing masks and face shields and students 6 years old and older will be required to wear face masks.

Reviews & Testimonials

Great Camp Overall! (
Louanne P. — Parent

My son did the Pet Vet Hospital Tour iCamp and the activities were unique and fun. He loved baking dog cookies and making a toy for our cat. He also made blood (platelets, red/white cells, plasma) using assorted candy and oil. Ms. Nadra was fun, kind, patient and attentive. Short dance segments helped break up the 2 hour session. Great camp overall!

Wonderful Experience!
Nakia F. — Parent

I enrolled my 9 year old son in the Coding, Programming + Minecraft iCamp. He was a little hesitant at first but it turned out very well. He was engaged the whole time and had so much fun. It was great to see him submerge himself in the class as coding is one of his passions. It was such a wonderful experience he took a second coding camp. The instructor was also great and experienced. She really encouraged the kids and allowed them to express their knowledge of the course.

My son literally woke up bright eyed everyday to get started!
Tammy W. — Parent

Makhi was eager to take the Culinary course! He enjoyed making the delicious snacks. He made tasty bruschetta, cheese and chive scones, strawberry shortcake snacks and pizza on skewers. The instructor, Victoria, was so much fun, thorough and patient. Makhi literally woke up bright eyed everyday to get started! He took a lot of pride in serving all of what he created!

Teachers are patient and encouraging

Idea Labs were great and professional! My daughter enjoyed the online kinetic science class so much that she was sad that it was going to end. She always showed us what she made everyday and had so much enthusiasm going into class! The teachers are very patient, clear when instructing and so much fun! I highly recommend Idea Labs for your children!

I would highly recommend this camp and other camps from Idea Lab Kids

I enrolled my younger brother in the Kinetic Art - Where Engineering Meets Art camp last week and he had a blast. The activities were engaging and thought-provoking. We were extremely happy with the instructor Ms. Nadra as she was experienced in the subjects and made the activities super fun. I would highly recommend this camp and other camps from Idea Lab Kids. Thanks so much!
