Academic Summer Day Camp

Registration is now open for

Summer Camp 2024

Join us for a summer of fun, learning and growth!

Campers between ages 4 to 13 love the hands-on learning opportunities and the different topics covered every week. Students complete crafts, do research, complete projects, do presentations, play games, and engage in learning activities that allow them to grow and thrive throughout the summer months.

Step Up Academy has a long history of offering learning opportunities to students from preschool to Grade 12 that are relevant and responsive to their needs. We work with children throughout the school year to offer tutoring and enrichment classes after school and on the weekend. Our work is rooted in the philosophy that all students can grow and thrive with the right supports and resources. Our programs for summer learning continue this effort to engage children in growth with our summer tutoring programs and summer camp throughout the day.

Summer Camp 2024 Rocket Space is limited to ensure a rich summer camp experience, so please register early. Summer Camp 2024 Science Summer Camp 2024 Test Tube

We strive to provide an early childhood education program and summer programs for kindergarten students that engage them at the level they are at. This includes stories and opportunities to talk about the stories they read. We do writing and reading and integrate various learning centers that keep our young children engaged and excited about learning throughout the day.

Summer day camp for preschoolers is difficult to find at times, but that’s our speciality. We know what a strong early childhood education program requires and purposefully plan activities to engage our students. We know they cannot sit for long and focus for hours on end. So we plan with their needs in mind.
