Pickering College – Hilltop Summer Discovery Program

Pickering College is excited to offer our Hilltop Summer Discovery Camp for students entering Kindergarten – Grade 5. Offering 8 weeks of day camp this summer, our campers will enjoy spending their days on our beautiful campus taking part in traditional camp activities, STEM projects, sports, leadership challenges and outdoor adventures.

New this summer: Harvest Hub @ Blue & Silver Farm. Campers entering Grades 4 – 8 will be bused from our main campus to the farm daily for an action-packed day of farm-to-table food cultivation and preparation, farm craft, outdoor education activities and wilderness skills. Organic snacks and lunch prepared from local food are included as part of the experience. This program includes an overnight at the farm on Thursday night where campers will cook over the fire, enjoy a stargazing hike and sleep in canvas tents on wooden platforms. Space in this program is very limited so register early!

Students entering Grades 5 -8 can register for our Middle School Programs. Check out programs in Leadership, Arts Academy, STEM Challenge, Create & Design and Music – we have something for everyone.
