What Is Camp Eureka?

Camp Eureka is a week-long robotics and engineering camp hosted by our club during school breaks and intercession.  The purpose of Camp Eureka is to spread science and technology information throughout the community and help our club fundraise for trips and parts.  During camp, each student is placed in a group with one or two other students, which is mentored by one of the club members.  This style of teaching encourages cooperation and creativity and provides students with individualized instruction from our members.  It also ensures that all students find our camps educational and enjoyable! You can register for the upcoming Camp Eureka or read the Camp Eureka Blog Posts in the blogs tab! Keep reading this post to find out about our scholarship program!

What will my child(s) be doing at Camp?

Each Camp Euerka we hold has a different theme and game/activity. Generally, and will be what is offered in the June Camp, is VEX IQ Robotics, where kids work with essentially upgraded lego pieces, to design, build, wire, program, and drive a robot. At camp, we split the kids into groups of 2 or 3 where they work with each other and an HVR mentor to try and conquer the challenge!

For payment, please give it to an HVR mentor on the first day of Camp (Our school office will no longer be accepting payment in envelopes due to school rules). Payment must be received no later than the second day of any camp or your child(s) will have to be revoked from the camp.

The tuition is $175 per student per session. A student can attend both the morning and afternoon session which would cost $350. Scholarships are available for those unable to afford the tuition but are interested in attending. Information can be found above.

What does my child need to bring to camp?

If your child is attending both the morning and afternoon session, your child will need to bring lunch if they wish to eat during the intermission between the sessions (12:00 pm – 1:00 pm). During this intermission, the child can stay with the mentors and does not need to get picked up. Otherwise, students are not required to bring anything as snacks and water are provided; however, students are free to bring their own snacks and drinks.
