The University of Toronto offers a range of camp programs for children during March Break. Please be advised that this list is for information purposes only. The Family Care Office does not run camp programming for children. Should you have any questions or require further information, please contact the camp provider directly. Due to limited resources, only University of Toronto camps are listed on this page.

Summer Math Enrichment Camps
Summer Math Enrichment Camps are here! Our week-long day camps expose students in grades 1-10 to math in a fun, interactive, and hands-on way. We intend on offering virtual and in-person camps during certain weeks of July and August. Note: Please register your child into the grade they are going into in September.
- Term 1 (July 11-15, In-Person): Math Circle Problem-Solving Camps (Grades 1-10)
- Term 2 (July 25-29, Online): Math in Algorithm & Coding Camps (Grades 1-10)
- Term 3 (August 16-20, Online): Enrichment/Project-Based Math Camps (Grades 1-10)
Dates and Schedule
- March Break Camps: Week of March Break (five days)
- Enrichment Courses: May 10 – June 17, 2022 (six weeks)
- High School Advanced Math Clubs: May 28 – June 18 (four weeks)
Enrichment Courses – These courses are designed for students who are confident in math concepts at their grade level and are looking for greater challenges and new ways to stimulate their interest in math. For those already familiar with our past “Enriching Minds” clubs and camps, these courses will be in a similar vein, adapted for the online experience. We will be offering some special themes and formats this Spring.
Math Circle Camps – Math Circle provides students with an opportunity to learn to solve problems that foster mathematical thinking. Campers will get creative when investigating problems that are “easy to pose, challenging to solve, require connections among several concepts and techniques, and lead to significant math ideas.” (Wikipedia).
Project-Based Math Camps – Campers will discover the endless connections of mathematics to the world around us through the project-based camps. Through mini activities, crafts, and games, campers will build meaningful hands-on math projects.
Algorithm & Coding Camps – The strong and beautiful relationship between Algorithms, Coding and Math will be introduced to young coders in this camp. Building on math knowledge, like geometry, solving math puzzles, and learning key programming concepts, students code together to solve challenges and mini projects.
Online classes will be taught live on Zoom, and materials will be organized on Google Classroom. Both platforms are free, and students will receive an invitation link a week prior to the course start date.
Program Fees and Financial Support
- Junior Courses & Camps: $225

Virtual | Girls’ Minecraft: Build, Design, Discover! | Grades 5 – 6 | $400 | February 26th – March 19th
This immersive experience aims to build students’ digital literacy skills through gamification using Minecraft Education Edition in a girl-developed, girl-led, and girl-empowering setting. Occurring over the course of four Saturdays, students will be introduced to the world of Minecraft and learn how to navigate, design, and build in this world. Students will have the opportunity to work with their peers online to develop interactive prototypes and complete challenges using their critical thinking skills. They will learn about the Engineering Design Process throughout the week and apply this learning in their designs within a shared virtual world!
Please Note: This program is the same as our Minecraft: Build, Design, Discover! programs offered last summer. If you have participated in these classes with us before, you may find the content to be too similar.
Virtual | STEM Enrichment Courses | Grades 9 – 12 | $250 | February 26th – March 19th (Cohort 2)
The STEM Enrichment Courses aim to challenge and excite highly-motivated students from grades 9 through 12 in various areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Led by upper-undergraduate and graduate engineering students, students explore advanced engineering topics and the range of projects engineers work on in order to build a better society. Students will realize what it means to be a well-rounded engineer in this community-oriented, remote and accessible virtual environment.
- Grade 9/10 – Ethics in Modern Medicine and Biotechnology
- Grade 11/12 – Introduction to Computer-Aided Design
- Grade 11/12 – Forensic Engineering: Investigating Engineering Materials
