Junior Archaeologist

Campers should be prepared to get dirty as they dig, find, and build while exploring the Earth in this amazing day camp! Campers will dig into the history of the Earth as they discover the impact Climate Change has had on the planet, as well as educational innovations that will shape the future.

Campers will:

  • Create a comet

  • Conduct an archaeological dig

  • Create a mold of their fossil

  • Investigate Wascana Marsh and see what lives in the water

  • Run, jump, and play inside and outside!

  • Watch an awe-inspiring IMAX movie!

  • And more!

Jump Up & Get Down

Campers will learn by doing as they investigate how the different systems of the body work. They will test their scientific skills as they conduct tests to determine what public spaces have the most germs and create their own simulated kidney stone. Campers will also learn if they can trust their eyes as they witness and create their own illusions.

Campers will:

  • Actively learn and practice scientific principles

  • Compare a human body to the bodies of other animals

  • Run, jump, and play inside and outside!

  • Watch an awe-inspiring IMAX movie!

  • And more!


Build, Create, MAKE

In this camp your future engineers will design buildings, create their own games, and solve problems. These campers will wear many hats are they explore engineering topics including food, architecture, and the environment. Get ready to build, explore, ad discover!

Campers will:

  • Create a house that can survive an earthquake

  • Test their skills as they mine for precious minerals

  • Create their own playground

  • Run, jump, and play inside and outside!

  • Watch an awe-inspiring IMAX movie!

Coding Kids

What is coding? Where do we see it? Why does it matter? Campers will be introduced to a brand new language (coding) and learn how they see it everyday, without even knowing it!

Campers will:

  • Be introduced to coding

  • Build a robot

  • Learn to identify technologies that existed before they were born

  • Learn to code a boardgame

  • Run, jump, and play inside and outside!

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.

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.

Please have a look at our Day Camp Info Sheet for answers to other questions, including our photo ID policy, Behaviour Contract usage, and cancellation policy.
