Science North Programs

Fun science-based camps and programs for kids and adults at Science North and Dynamic Earth in Sudbury and in Thunder Bay!

We offer great science-based day camps and programs for kids and adults throughout the year, including holidays, P.A. days, and March Break. Check out our offerings at Science North and Dynamic Earth in Sudbury and in Thunder Bay.


Science North Programs are designed for four major age groups:

  • 4 to 5 year olds
  • 6 to 8 year olds
  • 9 to 11 year olds
  • adults

You may have a child who is too old for a certain age category but still has friends there, or a child who is just shy of a particular age group. With each group (except the 4-5 year olds), we will gladly look at how we can create a positive experience for your child. However, Science North will not take children under the age of four. There are huge developmental differences between a three year old and a five year old. Putting them in the same group doesn't work well – trust us, we've tried!

Our Staff

The staff that lead our Programs are mature, experienced and creative individuals that both enjoy science and working with children. All Program staff and volunteers affiliated with programs have had a police check, and are first aid/CPR certified. They undergo regular training modules on everything from child development to the value of play.
