Since the founding of Explorations in 1981 by a group of McGill University professors, this renowned child-centered and experience-based camp has welcomed children and adolescents from age 5 to 19. The camp is divided into four sections; Junior, Intermediate, Senior and Panorama program. Our Panorama offerings take summer learning and engagement to a higher level. They are designed to appeal to curious and more independent adolescents from ages 15 to 18. Each group is led by a McGill graduate or graduate student with academic studies and work-related experience in their particular activity.
EXPLORING SCIENCE, ART AND BUSINESS
What's in a day?
The Panorama programs are designed for high school and CEGEP students who are passionate about science, business or arts and are seeking to enrich their understanding and experience in various fields of study. Our aim is to help cultivate your potential by introducing you to current research, university programs, possible career paths, and enthusiastic role models.Senior campers from Secondary IV to CEGEP go as a group to as many as 30 different departments at McGill University, including off-campus places of interest such as Mont Ste-Hilaire, museums, and more. Graduate students and professors talk about their research on a myriad of different subjects. Campers are given opportunities to visit labs and research centres at universities around the Montreal area.Our Senior Campers usually meet in the morning at Roddick Gates at McGill University as it is in close proximity to many of the activities. The Program is divided into two Sessions, and students can choose Session 1, Session 2 or Both Sessions as the activities do not repeat.
