Discover our week-long immersive summer programs

 
Students learn firsthand by doing. They solve real-world problems, meet extraordinary people and build things. They grow, sometimes exponentially. Robust partnerships with the University of Toronto and other Community Partners  bring the learning to life. Most of all, they tap into the power of teamwork and collaboration while learning with like-minded peers. It all adds up to the kind of learning that stays with them for life. Camps offered for students aged 10 to 18.
 

Grades listed refer to the student's Grade as of September 2022.

In following University of Toronto COVID-19 safety protocols, all participants must be fully vaccinated before attending these programs based on the requirements of University of Toronto. Masking will be strongly recommended, unless a 2 meter distance cannot be maintained (such as close work in a classroom). Exceptions to the 2 meter spacing requirement include when actively eating/drinking, engaged in strenuous physical activity, or playing an instrument/singing/performing. Teachers leading summer camps can require participants are wearing masks when the 2 meters rule cannot be maintained.

Experimenting with aesthetics

 

Students learn how to harness light to create impactful images, using a single lens reflex camera and photographic processes like cyanotype. An understanding of the aesthetics of photography is developed along the way through daily experiments, photo walks and visual challenges. Concepts like reflection, refraction and chromatography will be photo-captured to reveal the hidden properties of every day objects. The week ends with a digital exhibition of student work.

 

Participants will have access to the Adobe Creative Cloud for the session which includes Photoshop and Lightroom and other Adobe creative software.

 

Required equipment:

A camera is not required but campers are welcome to bring their own digital, phone or SLR camera.

Students will explore the art and science of photography

  • Maximize their understanding of the interplay between light, lenses and the visual world
  • Build enhanced technical photography and digital editing skills
