Science North Summer Camp at Home

Want to keep your child engaged in fun, hands-on science activities this Summer? Science North, Northern Ontario's most popular tourist attraction located in Sudbury, is offering a new virtual summer camp experience. 'Summer Science at Home' will provide children with the opportunity to continue to learn about the wonderful world of science from the comfort of home. 

This activity-based hour held on Zoom takes summer camp in a whole new direction — now accessible by kids all across the country. From building hovercrafts and catapults to creating secret codes with invisible ink, your child will get a chance to experiment, build and tinker with stuff you likely have around the house! After your time is done, Science North will leave your family with other activities and media to use, so the fun can continue at your discretion.

As long as you have an internet connection, you can join in on the fun! Two programs are available. The July program, which repeats weekly, offers different fun activities that will explore the various fields of science, technology, engineering and math! Then, starting August 4, a brand-new set of activities will begin, also repeated weekly.

Camp is hosted by Science North’s highly trained staff and is delivered in both English and French. There is a maximum of 10 participants in each Zoom group. Choose a one-hour time slot of your choice from Monday to Friday, starting the week of July 6. Programs are open to children ages 7 to 12, and a family option is available for 2 or more children using the same device. Online camps will be offered until September 4, 2020.
