Eng Squad

Female Building a small car

Eng Squad is a new and exciting summer camp program that allows students to explore the world around them using a scientific lens. Students will dive into hands-on activities that challenge them to think critically and create innovative solutions using science, math and technology. 

Our goal is to inspire youth to ask questions and empower them to develop solutions using the engineering design process. 

 

Eng Squad is located at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology North location, 2000 Simcoe Street North Oshawa. 

Camp runs daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Extended drop off and pick up is available from 8 to 9 a.m. and again from 4 to 5 p.m. to better accommodate your work schedule.

Camper Check-In starts at 8 a.m. on Mondays!

This year we are excited to expand our camp program to include campers from grade 4 to 8!
