Oak Learners provides summer camps that incorporate STEAM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Arts-Math activities) for children between the ages of 4 through 12. Children the opportunity to learn while engaging in the outdoors, what a great combination!

While engaged in outdoor play, Oak Learners provides children with risky play opportunities. Children need to engage in risky play as it enhances children’s development by developing independence and confidence within themselves. STEAM is delivered through the summer camp at Oak Learners to help children enhance their social skills along with confidence and their cognitive abilities.

A parent had mentioned that “My son attended his first camp last week at Oak Learners. To say he loved it would be an understatement. They built a fun soap volcano, saw caterpillars and watched them eat and grow, and even managed a visit to a splash pad. They did many arts and crafts projects which are now displayed at home. Thank you to Oak Learners for a great week!” (Gillian R.).

The children spend a majority of the time outside while at the summer camps and go on field trips that take place within the community that will allow them to explore the world in which they live! Mental health is very much supported within the summer camps by allowing the children to participate in self-care activities that focus on mindfulness. This allows them to have the time to relax and focus on themselves!

Hello, my name is Melissa Shoesmith and I am currently in my fifth semester at Seneca College in the Bachelors of Child Development program. I am completing my field placement here at Oak Learners. Working with children is the most rewarding job in the world in my opinion. I love having the opportunity to watch children learn and grow. I always want to make a positive impact on a child's life!
