Eng Squad

Female Building a small car

Eng Squad is an exciting camp program that allows students to explore the world around them using a scientific lens. Students will dive into hands-on activities that challenge them to think critically and create innovative solutions using science, math and technology. 

Our goal is to inspire youth to ask questions and empower them to develop solutions using the engineering design process. 

 

Eng Squad March Break Camp is open to campers in grade 4 to 6 and will run from Monday, March 11 to Friday, March 15. Eng Squad will run at the Northern Dancer Public School located on 2200 Bridle Rd, Oshawa, ON L1L 0B4. 

Camp runs daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Extended drop-off and pick up is available from 8 to 9 a.m. and again from 4 to 5 p.m. to better accommodate your work schedule.
