NUScience Explorations

Summer 2017

(formally known as the Science, Mathematics and Engineering Camps)

Registration for July 2017 Science Camps are now available!

Summer 2017 camps will be held on the following dates:

Week 1: July 4th - 7th (4 day camp)

Theme: Environmental Studies

Kicking off our first week, campers will have the chance to explore the amazing environment and learn about the relationships between plants, animals, humans, and the world we live in. We’ll be bringing back old favorites like crayfish hunting, as well as a new exciting field trip.

Week 2: July 10th - 14th

Theme: Outdoor Education

Equip yourself to thrive in the outdoors as we teach campers many basic survival techniques. We’ll be repeating camper favorites from previous years such as campfire and shelter building, and the world famous survival game. Additionally, we’ll be incorporating new activities such as traditional natural remedies and simple first aid.

Week 3: July 17th - 21st

Theme: Earth and Space Science

Have you ever wanted to learn about the depths of space? Yes, of course you have. Campers will learn about and engage in activities regarding what makes a planet habitable for humans, and the vastness of the universe. The week will consist of a mix of fan favourites such as rocket launching, and new never before seen activities.

Week 4: July 24th - 28th

Theme: Discovery and Innovation

Molding the innovators of the next generation! This camp will focus on developing the creative and scientific thinking of each individual (and fun, of course). Campers can expect a wide variety of games and tasks that involve designing and building cars, and simple self-functioning robots.

Week 5: July 31st - August 4th

Theme: Aquatic Studies

Explore the wonders of aquatics as we spend the week playing many fun games and doing activities all involving water. We will inspect water ecosystems, examine the properties that make it, and discover many of its roles in nature and biological systems. These activities include shark discovery and taking a day trip to the beach.

The cost for 2017 Camps is $175/week ($150 for 4 day camp)

Our camps are designed to engage and educate all participants aged 8-12 years of age.

Under the supervision of trained camp counselors, students will be working in science labs and the outdoors in the fields of ecology, space science, outdoor education and other science-related fields. Incorporating Aboriginal perspectives, every week will feature an exciting science topic and will include fun outdoor activity time. Interested participants may sign up for one or more weeks; each week will offer different opportunities and experiences. The program runs daily from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm.
