Youth and teens from across Alberta are enjoying a wide range of camp offerings at RDC this summer.
College officials say there are over 40 fun and hands-on summer camps for youth aged 6 – 18, running from July 3 – August 24.
Described as both interactive day and overnight camps, youth are taking part in numerous educational, athletic and artistic opportunities through sport, science, visual art, film, game design, music, cooking, theatre and animation.
Overnight camps are also providing teens with a memorable experience living on campus.
Tracey Gall, Fitness and Wellness Coordinator with Continuing Education at RDC says the programming they run is very unique and features exceptional instructors and RDC’s athletic coaches offering the campers a first-rate experience.
“We offer a multitude of science programming, anywhere from coding to natural science, through STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), and all types of technology,” Gall says. “What’s really unique about all our camps is we spend quite a bit of time doing research. We spend almost 12 months researching and putting our camps together well before they even happen.”
One example of that this year is an in-house drone building and test-flight camp being offered for the first time.
“It’s just all about finding that creative, innovation programming that we can offer here at the College for the students,” says Gall. “We truly do hope that these students get an opportunity to get a feel and the flavour for what we offer here at Red Deer College for our non-credit and our credit program and hope that the students one day envision that they will become Red Deer College students.”
