Western summer camps suspended – virtual camps launched
Sadly, Western summer camps won't be running in person this year. The good news is Western Engineering, Sport Western and the Indigenous Student Centre are all offering virtual options to keep campers busy - and even more virtual options are in the works too, so check back regularly for programs and updates.
The Summer 2020 in-person camps that will not be running in person include: Western Engineering Outreach Summer Programs, Sports Western, Space Explorers, Mini-University Program and the Bit by Bit Computer Camp. If you registered your child in one of these summer camps, you will receive a full refund. Please allow 4 - 6 weeks for processing.
Virtual Summer Programs Available
Managing to stay on top of routines for the kids in your house is extra challenging in these complicated times. If you're looking to have some more at-home activities, we have compiled free virtual programs and resources offered by Western to keep the kids entertained and engaged in learning while at home.
