April 29th, 2014

By Oil Sands Discovery Centre

The Oil Sands Discovery Centre is an educational facility committed to increasing public awareness and knowledge about the oil sands. The Centre is a provincial facility operated by Alberta Culture, Historic Sites and Museums Branch. The Centre offers educational programs, public programs, and special events year round.

The Oil Sands Discovery Centre will once again offer science camps this summer for children age four to ten! The camp season begins on July 2 and goes until August 21. There are 8 different camp sessions this year. Each camp is designed around a different science topic for a specific age range.

There are several new and exciting camp themes this year. Campers will explore the exciting world of paleontology and learn all about dinosaurs during Paleontology Adventures! Chemists in training will discover all about chemistry and perform some exciting experiments during Mad Science camp. For the first time ever, the Oil Sands Discovery Centre is offering a camp for girl scientists only! During Girl Power camp, girl scientists will explore the girly side of science and even meet some real female scientists. Some favourite camp themes from years past will also be returning this summer. Discover the science behind magic and some cool new tricks in Science Sorcerers, or learn how to make a bubbling concoction in your own kitchen during Science in the Kitchen. The littlest campers will explore the exciting world of science and make their own discoveries during the 4 day camp Junior Scientists.
