April 2019 Day Camps

What better way to spend school holidays than by experiencing the Saskatchewan Science Centre for the entire week! In April we are offering 4-day camps for ages 6 to 8 and 9 to 11. Check out the camp details below!

Please see our Frequently Asked Questions below.

What will my kids do at a Science Centre Camp?

They'll have a lot of fun! Science Centre camps are active camps - kids spend plenty of time outdoors, running around in the building, playing, and of course, they spend some time learning too! Each camp has different themes and activities but rest assured - they'll come home happy and tired at the end of the day.


Ages 6 to 8

Theme: Superhero Science

It’s a bird!  It’s a plane!  It’s a scientific adventure!  In this week full of fun scientific activities, campers will explore the world of superheroes and comics by learning about the science of superpowers! Campers will build superhero tools, perform experiments, and explore the forces around us. Everyone has a super power and your child will discover theirs in this super scientific adventure!  

Campers will:

  • Explore the world of robots by making Scribble Bots 

  • Make a mini avatar with Shrinky Film and learn about polymers 

  • Make their own superhero laser sword 

  • Work together to create a Super Suit!

  • See a giant-screen IMAX film

  • And way more!


Ages 9 to 11

Theme: Energy Explorer

What is energy? A battery? The sun? A ball rolling down a hill? Energy is everywhere! Campers will ‘perform work’ as they see an IMAX film, learn about renewable energy and even burn off some of their own energy in Wascana Park. Your child will learn to code with a Microbit to create a step counter and complete engineering challenges to distribute energy and force. Campers will even create and navigate an obstacle course using Bernoulli’s principle and a leaf blower!   

Campers will:

  • Be active and outside

  • Learn about all types of energy

  • Make art using UV Energy

  • Learn about what foods give the most energy

  • Make their own energy bar!

  • See a giant-screen IMAX film

  • And more fun stuff!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are electronic devices permitted at the camps? 
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.

What time are drop off and pick-ups? 
Campers can be dropped off between 8:30am and 9:00am. Please arrive after 8:30am as we do not have an earlier drop off time. Pickup is between 4:30pm and5:00pm.
