STFX Campus Summer Camps 2021

Camp Location: StFX Physical Science Centre, Antigonish.  Camp Hours: 9am-3pm

Camps are 2 days in length and limited to 10 youth to follow Covid-19 protocols.  At this time MASKS ARE MANDATORY while inside at our camps! Each camp is being offered twice (Monday/Tuesday & Wednesday/Thursday) to increase the ability to attend our camps.  Monday/Tuesday camps will be identical to Thursday/Friday camps of the same name.  For example, Molecules on Monday/Tuesday will cover the same content as Molecules on Thursday/Friday.

Each camp is geared towards the specified age groups with challenges varying from beginner to advanced. Campers can be registered in the camps for the grade which they are going into, ie. a child finishing Grade 2 should be enrolled in a Grade 3-4 camp. Exceptions can be made, within reason.​
