U of W’s Eco-U Program Recognized by Acuta

By Tyler Sutherland

The Eco-U Summer Camp program at the University of Winnipeg has achieved membership status with an organization designed to inspire youth when it comes to science, engineering and technology.

Acuta recognized the U of W’s successful program, which has grown to become the largest day camp for inner-city children in Winnipeg. In the last four years, approximately 2,900 children have attended Eco-U Summer Camp from 30 inner-city schools.

The children participate in engaging science and environmental activities with a focus on Indigenous science. The camp aims to address summer learning loss and the barriers to participation commonly faced by inner-city children and youth.

The Eco-U Summer Camp runs from the beginning of July to the last week of August at the Sargent Park Arena and The University of Winnipeg campus.
