Volunteering Leadership Program – Summer 2018

Are you enthusiastic about Science, Technology, Engineering or Math? Do you want to spend a week making a difference in your community? Come volunteer with Creative Encounters with Science at the University of Guelph School of Engineering to provide fun, dynamic & hands on experiences in STEM!


High school students who will be entering Gr 10-12 in the Fall are welcome to be apart of our team! This is an excellent & exciting way to earn your 40 hours. Volunteers are responsible for the following:

  • inspiring youth of all ages to get excited about STEM!
  • preparing for activities & organizing materials
  • involvement & assistance in camp curriculum
  • leading lunchtime activities
  • Being a key member of our team!


Learning doesn’t stop with our campers. Volunteers at Creative Encounters have a chance to get immersed in STEM and inspire others with their own passion, experiences & growing knowledge. A fantastic way to be involved with youth in the community, help a greater cause and build up your resume. We value the volunteers that are a part of our program & will be working closely with them to encourage leadership & initiative!


Most of our camps are run on the University of Guelph campus in the Engineering building (Thornborough).

To find the dates for this summer, go to the Camp Schedule.
