Keep your kids learning and engaged this summer through the library’s virtual online camps. These week-long camps will meet at the same time each day for 1.5 hours. Campers will gain digital literacy and coding skills through hands-on interactive projects. All materials needed for activities will be provided to campers prior to the camps and can be picked up at any library branch offering curbside services. Staff to camper ratios are kept low to ensure individualized support and engagement.

Camps include: 

  • 3D Design & Modelling Virtual Camp
  • Architects vs. Engineers Virtual Camp 
  • Code Makers Virtual Camp
  • Game Design Virtual Camp 
  • STEAM Virtual Camp 
  • Storyteller's Workshop Virtual Camp 


3D Design & Modelling Virtual Camp:

Dive into one of the fastest growing STEM fields. This camp will provide a fun and dynamic experience that will allow children to learn how to model and print in 3D. As part of their project, participants will have a chance to learn principles of designing and prototyping.
