Day Camps

1
 

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 bookings@sasksciencecentre.com
