Camp

Summer 2015 camp registration is open!

Science Quest camps are an absolute BLAST! We have the coolest instructors, the most awesome projects and the best camp around! Read the descriptions below to find out more.

The following camps are offered at Science Quest during the summer:

Week A & B –  We design an A and B curriculum for our standard Science and Tech camps (which run every week of the summer) so that campers can come to camp for multiple weeks without repeating the same projects.

Grades: Most of our camps are designed for either kids entering grades 4 and 5 in September, or kids entering grades 6 to 8 in September. (The exceptions are French & Eco: grades 5-7, and EIS: grades 7-9)

Camp will run on July 1st

Science Camp

Campers will do exciting and relevant science activities that will spark their creativity and link science to the world around them! Science Camp will span civil engineering to ecology to geology and everything in between for an eye-opening experience. Our positive instructors will act as role models, leading campers through activities, cool demonstrations and experiments all week long!

Tech Camp

Tech Camp is the new and improved version of our wildly popular Computer Camp. Campers will create computer games, experiment with movie making software, program robots, learn photo editing techniques, edit audio files and much, much more! This popular camp is a wonderful chance to work your creativity during the summer months and have some fun with awesome technology.
