Saskatchewan Science Centre Day Camps are offered on select school holidays during the school year. We also offer very popular week long summer day camps during July and August.
Campers experience themed activities and experiments, science demonstrations, award-winning exhibits, an IMAX film and ample time to run around and enjoy a Science Centre experience. They’ll also meet new friends and create memories that will stick around for a lifetime.
If your camper is shy, we can register your child with a friend and we will make sure to include them in the same group.
To register your child call us at 306-791-7943 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Science Surprise Camps
As if science wasn't exciting enough! Spend the week being amazed each day with a different area of science. Campers will build robots, perform a dissection, and engage in activities from five different science fields: biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, and astronomy! This camp is all about the element of surprise!
Be active and get moving in the exciting EveryBODY Science Day Camp. Learn the science behind how astronauts stay healthy in space and how you can stay healthy on Earth. Get moving by engaging in games and active play. Learn about the impact of different foods and drinks on our bodies and the science behind some of our favorite sports and movements. This won't be a waist of time, and most campers will even find it humerus!
Physics is truly EVERYWHERE! Learn about the importance of physics in everyday life. Become a physicist, build airplanes, and make waves. Use your creativity to make unique works of art. Learn while cooking and even use liquid nitrogen for some cool activities! Physics can be theoretical, but the fun in this camp will be REAL!
Explore the various earth ecosystems and investigate the creatures that live in them. Campers will dive deep into the ocean and track across the landscape to learn more about animals in all parts of the world as well as those close to home. Get a firsthand look at the animals that live in the Science Centre! Campers will even have a chance to investigate the Arctic Voices travelling exhibition. Ewe will have a whale of a time!

Turkey vultures search for food using smell, a practice that is not common among birds. As long as they can smell carrion, they can locate it even if they cannot see it.
