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, Behavior Contract usage, and cancellation policy.
