Summer Adventure Camps and Series Summer Arts School return to RDP in 2023
Red Deer Polytechnic is preparing to welcome youth and adult participants on campus this summer for a variety of popular returning camps and some exciting new ones.
Beginning in July, youth from across the province will be able to participate in Summer Adventures Camps, which include Day Camps and Overnight Camps, expanding their knowledge, skills, and connections in a supportive environment.
“We are excited to continue the long-standing tradition of offering dynamic camps and workshops to youth of many ages at Red Deer Polytechnic during the summer months,” says Dr. Maureen Toews, Associate Vice President, Teaching, Learning and Research. “With camps in science, cooking, music, fine arts, and sports, youth will be able to develop their talents in an area of interest while connecting with their peers and creating memorable experiences.”
The Polytechnic will offer an array of day camps that will entertain and educate students of different ages, interests, and abilities. Youth can enroll in camps that include Arts, Crafts, Superheroes, Babysitting, Dance, Junior Chefs, Wizard Academy, Science, Technology, and Sports.
A new Esports Day Camp has been added this year for youth aged nine to 18 at RDP’s Downtown Campus. With beginner and advanced camps, students will be able to learn more about competitive gaming at their level.
As part of several immersive RDP Overnight Camps for teens, Game Design, 3-D Animation, Film Making Camp, SummerScapes, MusiCamp, and ArtsTrek will provide students with unique opportunities to learn, create, and collaborate with peers and instructors on the main campus.
During the Polytechnic’s Series Summer Arts School for adults, artists of all skill levels will be able to choose from a variety of in-demand courses that include drawing, pottery, bronze casting, glass bead making, artistic welding, writing, and much more.
“We are extremely proud to continue the legacy of offering Series Summer Arts School in our vibrant, on-campus art studios,” adds Dr. Toews. “Participants will learn new techniques from professional instructors while collaborating with other artists. Our diverse offering of courses will creatively inspire artists and help to contribute to the ongoing development of the arts in Alberta.”
Individuals who register for certain camps before May 1, 2023 may be entitled to a discount.
