Virtual workshops are open to all ages, however are typically suited to grades 7, 8, and 9. See each event’s individual registration page (found via the calendar below) for details regarding difficulty level and required skills. Parent/guardian supervision is strongly recommended for all of our virtual sessions.

Regional Summer Camps 

Skills Ontario Summer Camp is a week-long day program for kids entering grades 7-9. The program runs in various locations across the province during the months of July and August, from Monday to Friday, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm. Through hands-on activities relevant to the skilled trades, campers develop communication, problem-solving and teamwork skills.

Campers take part in hands-on workshops led by Skills Ontario counselors and industry/college professionals that introduce them to a variety of topics in the industrial, construction, motive power, services and technology sectors; they explore careers in skilled trades through interactive games, industry tours and entrepreneurship programs.

The camps are facilitated in partnership with colleges, industries and community volunteers who are committed to giving the campers an outstanding hands-on experience. Note that schedules vary per location based on available volunteers and programming.

Camps are for students entering grade 7, 8, or 9 unless otherwise noted. Check back for information for the 2022 Summer Camp season! If you have any questions regarding the Skills Ontario Summer Camp program, email
