Do your children love to search for clues and learn about different countries? Do they like to discover animals and their natural habitats? Would they enjoy meeting real-life superheroes? Unleash their inner explorer this July and August at Kepler Academy’s first-ever interactive Summer Camps!
Children will journey to destinations all over the world with our Amazing Race program, dive deep into Arctic oceans and meet cold-weather animals with our Arctic program, and wrap-up the summer with a local twist: meeting every day superheroes that positively impact our communities and keep them safe, happy and healthy.
The Amazing Race
The fun Amazing Race portion will be an exciting time for children to travel from destination to destination, based on maps working together to identify landmarks.
In teams, they’ll study maps and search for clues, journeying to countries like Spain, Egypt, Columbia, New Zealand and Uruguay. When they’ve “arrived” in the country, they’ll create a flag for each, and problem-solve roadblocks they come across. They’ll collect objects, gather findings and create a presentation at the end of the module.
What better time to study the Arctic than in the summer? Children will learn about icebergs and glaciers, what they are, how they form and how they affect land and people. They’ll see the beauty and understand the science of the northern lights, and step into the culture of the Eskimo. Children will learn how locals in the Arctic live and study the unique geography there.
The module will encourage children to learn about different climates and interact with the plant and animal species that live there. A field trip to the Edmonton Valley Zoo is scheduled.
The inspiring Superheroes portion will run the last few weeks, and will introduce children to Edmonton’s most incredible people, like police officers, seniors, city leaders and more.
Children will learn about real-life superheroes like Terry Fox, Carrie Best, Rick Hanson, Rosemary Brown and Kevin Vickers. They’ll explore the true values of a superhero, like honesty, courage, loyalty, tolerance and respect, identifying the superheroes in their lives. It will be a perfect time to get out into Edmonton communities to clean up parks and visit the Stollery Children’s Hospital.
Friendships will flourish and so will pride for their city.
