Themes

Oh Canada

A celebration of all things Canadian. The innovations of Canada’s past and present will be explored and investigated through hands-on activities and experiments.  Campers will become inventors and try to create Canada’s next big innovation. Campers will conduct eh+ experiments, and have at least 907 kilograms of fun! 

Science Surprise III

Return of the Science! Science is always a surprise.  Campers will explore all of the wonders of science and help to answer some of the most puzzling questions. Campers will explore the “why” of their own world and learn there is science in everything.  

Planet Earth

From rocks and soil to the creatures that live in them, campers will get their hands dirty discovering the cool things on our planet and beyond. Campers will even learn how the rotation of the earth makes their day!

Me, Myself and Eye

The human body is fascinating.  Campers will learn about biology and physiology by learning more about what makes them unique. This will be the most “humerus” camp we have ever offered!

A typical day at one of our summer camps includes several different science activities and experiments scattered throughout the day. This includes time for snacks and recess, exploration on the exhibit floor, a science challenge, and a larger activity that might include an IMAX film, a visit to Candy Cane park, making liquid nitrogen ice cream, or a guest speaker.  Each camp is unique, tailored by age group, and as much science fun as kids can handle!

To avoid damage or loss, please leave all electronic devices at home. We are not responsible for lost or stolen items.

What should my child bring/wear? 
Please ensure that your child is dressed to be able to participate indoors, as well as outdoors. Campers will go outside in most weather conditions, and should come prepared to spend time outside in all conditions. However, if the weather is deemed unsafe, we will not complete activities outside. The only other supplies your child will need are two snacks for morning and afternoon breaks, and a lunch. Please ensure that all food packed is nut-free.
