NIC Youth Academy

NIC’s Youth Academy provides a unique opportunity for youth to get behind the wheel of the post-secondary experience. Participants will have special access to the quality instruction, facilities and resources that exist at NIC.

NIC Youth Academy summer camps are a fun and engaging way for youth ages 9-16 to further explore their passions in a supportive and interactive educational environment. Returning camps include the popular Mad Scientist and Lego Robotics Camps.

New camps this year include Coding & Web Design Camp, Video Art Editing Camp, Health Sciences Camp and French Language Camp.

Registration opens in April. For questions about NIC Youth Academy summer camps, please contact NIC Youth Outreach Liaison Ali Sandholm.
