Competitive Robotics Teams
Serious about robotics? Bot Camp invites our top students to join our official VEX IQ teams in a full-year elite-level competitive robotics program. Just as students join elite-level sports teams, Bot Camp assembles high-performance teams of students ages 10-14, and provide training, mentorship, all equipment, lab access, practice time, uniforms and registration fees for two official local VEX IQ tournaments.
The Ultimate Robotics Experience
Joining a high-performance robotics team is one of the most enriching experiences a student can participate in. Bot Camp strives to provide the best possible instructors, equipment, mentorship and team culture, allowing students to reach their full potential.
Elite Team (3 Days / Week)
The elite team is comprised of our most passionate and dedicated students. 6 hours of robotics lab time per week is dedicated to our elite teams. 2 hour meetings occur every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evening at 6:30 PM. Team membership fees are $439.99 + HST per month.
Competition Teams (1 Day / Week)
Our competition teams are for students who are serious about robotics, but unable to commit 3 days a week. It’s also great for students seeking an introduction to competitive robots before making a larger commitment. Bot Camp runs two competition teams: one every Thursday at 4:30PM, and one every Saturday at 10:30AM. Team membership fees are $199.99 + HST per month.
The Giles School Robotics Team (1 Day / Week)
Bot Camp runs a competitive robotics team program specifically for Grade 4-8 students at the Giles School and surrounding community. This team is open for all Giles students to join, with remaining spots available for open registration from the community. Invitations are not required to join this team. There are two Giles School teams, one meets every Wednesday at 4:30PM, the other every Friday at 4:30PM, and registration is available online here:Join the Giles Robotics Team
