About this camp

University of King's College

The University of King's College has programs for kids aged 6-17. King's Kids Summer Day Camp (ages 6-12) in July/Aug offers indoor and outdoor activities for grades primary to 6. Humanities for Young People (HYP) is a week-long summer live-in program for high school students interested in art, literature, philosophy and politics. King’s Sports Camps, focusing on soccer and basketball, are offered over March Break and in-service days, and the Summer Basketball Camp is in early August. The 2018 UKC March Break Skills Camps (March 12-14) are a fun and positive way to help female athletes build skills: the Skill Development Camp, grades 4-6, runs 9 am-12 pm; the Elite Development Camp, grades 7-9, runs from 1 pm-4 pm. Cost $150.

The Our Kids review of University of King's College


King’s College is the oldest university in Canada, and the first English-speaking university in the commonwealth outside of the UK. Founded in 1789, it has understandably acted as something of a touchstone for academic life, and indeed has provided leadership in that regard. The summer programs provide a unique opportunity for young people to experience the campus, and to find a home there. The day camp makes use of the world-class campus facilities, offering a range of activities. Humanities for Young People, a residential program for kids 15-17, is a defining feature of the summer season. It attracts students from across the country to engage with peers and faculty in topics in the humanities. For many participants it’s a chance to dip a toe into the realities and the pleasures of university life. For all, it’s a chance to engage meaningfully with topics of importance to them and to the world. Each summer program is based in a theme chosen for that year. The 2018 theme is migration, with students looking at human migration in the past and present, and how migration has shaped the country. Participants take a lot away from these sessions, foremost among them the inspiration to push themselves further, and with a greater sense of not only what they want to study after high school, but also a greater understanding of what they personally can bring to it. There isn’t a wealth of programs like this one, which is why so many students turn to Kings.
