SUDBURY, ON – Science North is offering exciting, week-long, science day camps for youngsters ages four to fifteen this summer! These programs are part of an initiative that will see Science North bring Summer Science Camps to a record 22 communities in 2008, most of which are in Northern Ontario but that also include the Barrie area.

Science North has been offering summer science camp programs to children for over twenty years. Our programs provide a unique mix of hands-on science and fun for kids. Most camps are available in English or French, and all contain new activities!

What other summer program gives your child the opportunity to make a cloud in a jar, search for buried fossils, take things apart to find out how they work, build their own construction projects and robots, design video games or make their own comic book, 3D characters and stop-motion animation projects? Thereís even a science camp thatís just for girls! From WaterWorks Camp to 3D Game Making, everyone is sure to have a great time!

Members of the media are invited to visit a Science North Summer Science Camp. Hereís a list of where we are this week!
