Toronto is starting to reopen its doors, and we can’t wait to welcome you back. But it’s going to take us a little longer due to our interactive, high-touch exhibits. We’re working on a comprehensive plan to make sure it’s safe when we open our doors again–so thank you for your patience. As soon as we have more details, we’ll share.

Day Camps

Summer Day Camps 2020

The health and safety of campers, staff, volunteers and families is always our top priority. For the past several months, our team has worked hard to determine whether we could adapt our programs to ensure physical distancing and adding screening and protection measures for our campers and staff.

With this in mind, and with no date for reopening the Science Centre, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel our 2020 summer camps.

We will begin processing full refunds for all camp bookings immediately, and are waiving administrative fees. Please be aware that this will take a little longer than usual, but we expect all refunds will be processed by the end of June.

We understand that you are disappointed. We are disappointed, too. We were looking forward to returning to the Science Centre and welcoming our campers to a summer of science fun – from engineering to food science.

We know this news is tough to hear, especially for families who have been doing their part, giving up playdates and social activities with other kids. That’s why we’re working on creating alternative in-person programming for the summer to support families and keep kids engaged with fun, science-based activities. We will continue to follow guidance from public health officials as we develop these new experiences and will share details as soon as we can.

In the meantime, check out Science At Home programming on our website and on our social channels, including do-it-yourself experiments, downloadable activities and weekly live events on Facebook where children and parents can ask a scientist a question. These events will run throughout the summer and are regularly updated.

Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us here.
