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 offer additional weeks to our summer camp programs. Campers are encouraged to sign up for more than one week of camp, as each week provides a new set of exciting activites. 

The cost of each week of camp is $230.

Bursary Program

With generous support from our supporters, UOIT Engineering Outreach is able to offer bursaries for our summer camp program. A bursary can cover up to 100% of the camp fee, and are awarded based on the completed application form and offer the opportunity for children who normally would not be able to afford our programs to attend. In order to ensure as many children as possible benefit from these bursaries, there is a limit of one per child per summer.
