Computer Camps

 

8 to10 years old and 10 to 12 years old

FUTUREKIDS Computer Camps and the RA’s Day Camp have joined forces to offer some unique opportunities for children. 
Campers spend either the morning (9:00 am to 12:00 pm) or the afternoon (1:00 pm to 4:00 pm) learning the latest 
in computer technology with themes and subjects that children love. The rest of the time, the campers join in the fun 
with the RA Day Camp. The computer segments of camp are taught by Ontario certified teachers. In each class, campers work in teams of two. An open house at the end of each camp allows the campers to show off their amazing computer creations to their families.
