A STEM summer camp leads to discoveries in urban backyards, Ecology and Evolution

Previous campers contributed to and co-authored a publication on the impact of streetlights on invasive grass species!


Students who have completed grades 5, 6, 7 or 8 are welcome to apply. There is very limited space available.

Please note, this camp is designed to provide access to the sciences for youth who would otherwise not have that privilege due to financial constraints. 

For that reason, the camp will be FREE for those whose families can demonstrate financial need.
