TELUS Spark Summer Science Camps For Kids in Calgary
TELUS Spark summer camps focus on hands-on activities, exploring exhibits, Dome Theatre shows, live science demonstrations and outdoor adventures. The days are all about the process; they may get a little messy, but the kids learn new skills and take some exciting risks along the way to build confidence.
Play is essential for healthy growth, so there is a mix of organized games and free play time into every day at camp. Perhaps even some time on the Brainasium, a science minded playground built to challenge kids at ever step.

Junior Scientists (age 5-6)

Investigate chemical reactions, explore the fascinating world of magnets, experiment with the shocking realm of electricity and find out what microscopes can reveal about things big and small.
Unusual Engineering (age 6-7)

Skillz Quest (age 7-9)
Your mission, should you choose to book this camp is to gain as many real skills as you can in one week. Earning a coveted badge for each new skill, campers will try their hands at everything from archery to cooking to woodworking to old-fashioned fire starting. Come with a taste for adventure and the courage to try something new!
