Help send a child to science camp!

More lightbulb moments of science wonder and curiosity for even more kids – all because of you.

By supporting a camp experience you open a doorway into an amazing new world for a child, regardless of their means, background, abilities or gender.

While few people remember their science lessons from grade school, everyone remembers their first camp experience. Synapses firing, endless awe and constant lightbulb moments of curiosity and science discovery.

But it’s more than just an introduction to new science concepts. From hands-on activities that build skills and confidence, to the incredible camaraderie and the thrill of discovery, a Spark camp is a master class in how to become a good thinker and a great human. It’s a priceless gift.

“My son Liam has ASD and ADHD, which makes it hard for him to engage in most activities. He loved his coding and robots camp! Every day when I picked him up, he had a HUGE smile on his face. It even inspired him to join his school’s robotics team.”

--Michelle F., Calgary
