Discovery Day Camp offers campers to hone their athletic ability in the world of basketball!

Each camper will be educated on the benefits of teamwork, sportsmanship, self-discipline, and confidence. Our weekly program is led by highly trained athletes and coaches that are committed to the personal development and character building of every unique participant. Discovery Day Camp is pleased to welcome professional and Canadian National Team Player Titus Channer this summer to our team! Lessons are aimed to build skill level by progressing the campers through fundamental basketball techniques. These techniques include: dynamic stretching, explosive movement, shooting mechanics, passing techniques, offensive and defensive concepts, and team concepts.

No matter your athletic ability or knowledge of the game, we invite all campers out onto our court!!!

Meet Our Professional Basketball Coach: Titus Channer!


Titus Channer

Titus Channer played at McMaster University, where he made his mark as the school's all-time leading scorer. In 2002, Titus became a member of the Canadian Men’s National Basketball Team, as a star point guard and won a silver medal in the 2002 World Championships.

Channer’s involvement with teaching began 20 years ago, during which he has run camps, clinics, and workshops throughout both Canada and Europe. His main focus is on basic skill development for all ages, and improving the entire athlete. He believes fundamental training teaches youth how to improve their game both mentally and physically through a variety of basketball concepts.

"Early Identification & Progressive Developmental Training is vital for young athletes with dreams of competing and playing regionally, nationally, and internationally and at the elite level."- Titus Channer

A Song Of My Own is a songwriting and recording workshop for kids of all experiential backgrounds; musical beginners are absolutely welcome!

Pulling from her own background as a licensed songwriter, recording artist and producer, instructor Robyn Dell'Unto supports campers through a journey of songwriting from the humble beginnings of a concept to song completion, recording, production and online presentation. Through this journey, campers gain confidence in their ability to devise themes and create their own story. Your camper will explore the building blocks that make up a popular song and gather tools to combat writers block, de-code popular rhyme schemes, and navigate hooks. Campers will also gain hands-on experience recording instruments into a professional condenser microphone, operating recording equipment and editing audio through Logic X.

Meet Robyn Dell’Unto Our Song Writing Specialist:

Robyn Dell’Unto is a songwriter, producer and founder of A Song Of My Own songwriting workshops for kids. Since the release of her debut album ‘I’m Here Every Night’ (Orange Lounge/Universal, 2O1O) Dell’Unto has garnered placements in over 35 TV episodes and films, including CBC’s Being Erica, MuchMusic's Degrassi: The Next Generation, Disney’s Harriet The Spy, CTV's The Listener, and a 2015 Zara national campaign.

Programming intriguing challenges using Dash & Dot

At Logics we believe that learning how to program robots at a young age is as essential as reading and writing. In this course students will be introduced to Dash and Dot, exciting and energetic robots that can be programmed with Google Blockly. Using this drag-and-drop programming language students will learn essential computational thinking and problem solving skills. Using programming concepts such as sequences, conditional statements and loops, these young coders will develop algorithms to complete stimulating challenges. From choreographing a dance, to saving the day, students will be amazed by Dash and Dot’s actions and feel empowered as they turn their imagination into reality!

This program teaches your children the link between money and work, saving, spending, sharing and giving back.

In Level 1, your child will “earn” income through fun role-playing activities. Then, they learn how to deposit, save, and earn interest in their own pretend bank account at our unique Walter’s FUNtastic Bank. Money math is based on 10’s and 100’s so they can relate values - $1, $10, $100 - to the real world. Just as importantly, your child learns about giving back through volunteerism.

Level 2 continues to build by adding $5, $50, $500 to the money math. Kids learn about life's basic needs—and what they cost. They get to play at doing a job, earning money from it, and watching their account at Walter’s FUNtastic Bank grow and earn interest. They even learn to make withdrawals and experience grocery shopping.
