Whether it is self-driving cars, or a robot that vacuums your house, efficient navigation in the real world is one of the most challenging problems that robots face. Students will learn about a variety of sensors, and test each one to navigate through a maze in the shortest amount of time. By experimenting with each type of sensor, they will understand the strengths and weaknesses in a variety of real life situations. They will also come away with a core understanding of what algorithms work best with different types of sensors, and how to combine multiple sensors to create more complex behaviours. As a final challenge, students will choose for themselves what sensor or combination of sensors will be best suited for the task, and put it to the test.

As an optional take home project for the course, students can go more in depth into the electronic wiring of sensors. Students will build a navigation platform similar to that of modern day robot vacuums, and build the electronic control board themselves to complete the maze.

Bayview Campus


Our Staff-in-Training program is designed specifically for adolescents who are ready for the challenge of leadership development and possess the maturity necessary to contribute to and benefit from the program.

Adolescents who have completed grades 8 or 9 have the opportunity to register in our Staff-in-Training program. This leadership training program involves ongoing supervision, evaluation and leadership training sessions and skill development workshops under the direction of our SIT Coordinator. The workshop sessions will focus on topics such as risk management, supervision, communication, teamwork, health and safety, programming, conflict management and bullying. SITs will spend the majority of their day assisting camp counsellors or specialists, thus allowing them the opportunity for hands on experience and training. As young leaders, SITs will learn and develop skills that will be useful all their lives.

Have you got game? Our volleyball program offers campers extensive volleyball training as they participate through a mix of instruction, team play, drills, tactics and game play. Each lesson is led by highly professionally trained athletes and coaches who are committed to the personal development, and character building of each participant. Discovery Day Camp is pleased to welcome, for two weeks, former head coach of the German Developmental Program, Lennard Krapp and former German Professional Volleyball and Beach Volleyball player Ulrike Krapp. Lennard and Ulrike will work with our campers this summer to help hone their volleyball skills.

With an emphasis on teamwork, sportsmanship, self-discipline, and confidence we welcome all participants, no matter your athletic knowledge of the game or ability, to come serve, bump, and spike with us!


Meet Our Professional Volleyball Coaches: Lennard & Ulrike Krapp!

Lennard Krapp

After coming to Canada nearly four years ago, Lennard Krapp began his Canadian career as the head coach of the Beach National Team. Since then, Canada has won multiple medals in international competition. He coached Garrett May and Sam Schachter to the Gold Medal at U21 World Championships and helped Canada in 2012 win the Continental Cup Final, which qualified us for the Olympic Games in London.

Ulrike Krapp

Former German Professional Beach Volleyball Athlete, Ulrike, has joined our Discovery Day Camp team alongside Lennard to work with our campers!

As a Certified German B-Level beach volleyball coach and coach for disabled athletes, Ulrike brings to the court her strength and conditioning methods to ensure athletes are performing to the best of their ability. With a background in Sports Physiotherapy, she had the pleasure of assisting the German National Beach Volleyball Team in 2008.

We look forward to working with Lennard and Ulrike and making sure this summer is a memorable one!
