Science Alliance



Science Alliance Day Camps teach kids about STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) in a fun, “hands-on, minds-on” interactive setting. Through experiments, activities, games, presentations, guest speakers, field trips, and more, we have gotten local kids excited about science and learning since 1996.

You will be able to secure your spot immediately upon registering, but this is only part one of registration. After your purchase, you will be required to log in to our Camp Portal, where you will submit details about your child, such as emergency contacts, allergy information, and more. You must submit these details at least 2 weeks prior to the first day of camp. This information will remain in our system, and will be available for any future camp registrations.

If your child’s information has already been added to the Camp Portal, you must still log in and assign your child to the camp you registered for. You can also update any information as needed.

Age Group
These camps and their activities are geared toward children aged 6-8.

Each weekly camp is limited to 20 campers.

Camp begins at 8:30am and ends at 3:30pm. We are unable to accommodate campers before 8:30am.

If you are late picking up your child, you will incur an additional fee of $20 per 15-minute increment.

Pick-Up and Drop-Off
Parents/guardians are required to provide two emergency contacts. Adults not listed on the registration form will not be permitted to take campers home unless a parent/guardian provides written consent. Photo ID is required for all adults picking up campers at the end of each day.

A parent/guardian must accompany the camper to the designated drop-off area and sign the camper in/out each day.

What to Bring
Campers must wear closed-toed shoes that attach to the feet. Please dress for the weather.

Snacks and lunch will be provided by Origins Kitchen. No outside food is permitted.

Your child should bring:

  • A refillable water bottle
  • Any special medications or medical devices as outlined in your registration form
  • We ask that your child not bring electronic devices from home (ie. phones, tablets, gaming devices) due to risk of loss or damage

Refund Policy
Cancellations received less than 5 days prior to the start of the camp session will not receive any refund of fees, unless a doctor’s certificate stating medical reasons is presented to our staff. Cancellations received 5 to 7 days prior to the start of camp will be refunded 50% of fees. Cancellations received more than 7 days prior to the start of camp will be refunded 90% of fees.

Behavioural Expectations
The Exploration Place strives to provide an environment free from violence and bullying. Campers disrupting the safety and enjoyment of others may require an immediate pick-up. Continued violent or bullying behaviours, after all other reasonable actions have been taken, may result in the de-registration of your child. De-registrations due to behavioural issues will be accompanied by a pro-rated refund for any days of camp the child misses.

Bursary Program


We are very proud of our bursary program, which, thanks to generous sponsors in our community, allows children who may not otherwise have the opportunity to enjoy a week of camp on us. Apply for a bursary here. (Powered by Do Some Good)

Thank you to our generous 2024 Science Alliance Supporters:

We are looking for community-minded individuals and businesses willing to partner with us to make our camps as successful as possible.

We are very proud of our bursary program, which, thanks to generous sponsors in our community, allows children who may not otherwise have the opportunity to enjoy a week of camp. Outreach is also very important to us—in addition to performing science demos in elementary schools in the area, we also attend community events around Northern BC, reaching thousands of children each year.
