Sleepovers Header


Join us for an extraordinary night of science!

A Sleepover at the Science Centre is a great group event, an unforgettable family outing and a unique indoor camping experience. For almost two decades, we have planned fun-filled, action-packed nights for you. Our sleepovers have taken you inside the human body, up to outer space, into the laboratories, and much more.

The 2015-16 sleepover theme and dates will be posted in August. 

Ontario Science Centre Sleepovers include:

    • IMAX Film
    • Hands-on Science
    • Badge Activities for Guides and Scouts
    • Exploration of the Science Centre after Dark
    • DJ / PJ Dance Party
    • Evening Snack and Breakfast
    • Good Morning Stretch
    • Free Parking
    • AND Admission to the Science Centre for the following day too!  

 Sleeping Areas

Sleeping areas throughout the Ontario Science Centre are assigned by the Sleepover program staff and cannot be selected. Washrooms are readily accessible for changing. Please note that we do not have shower facilities and, in true sleepover fashion, all participants will bunk down on the floor to sleep overnight.

Please note: Most sleeping areas are not carpeted and exhibits are not completely dark due to emergency lighting
