Run by York University; Science Engagement



About this Day Camp


  • Day Camp
  • Age 8 - 14 (Coed)
  • Specialized in STEM and Science (multi)—offers 12 activities
  • 1 session date to choose from
  • Cost starting from $325
  • Busing not available
  • Special needs support available  

This camp is designed to build the following character traits:

  • Curiosity: Our programs use a discovery and inquiry-based learning approach with a focus on ‘learning by doing’.
  • Creativity: Our outreach model provides students with a chance to work on a variety of projects. This model helps foster problem solving, critical thinking, and an overall passion for STEM.

March Break Science Camp returns in-person to York University from March 13 to March 17, 2023!  

Camps are developed and taught by undergraduate/graduate science or engineering students, Teacher Candidates, or Ontario Certified Teachers. In-person day camp programs are from 9am to 4pm from Monday to Friday. Each session will allow participants to be involved in hands-on activities and meet other like-minded students with a passion for science.

Students are split into different age groups: Junior (grades 3/4),Intermediate (grades 5/6), and Senior (grades 7/8).

Each day, participants will be immersed in a variety of exciting and unique activities and experiments exploring elements of Science and Engineering.

Junior Science & Engineering (Grade 3/4) 
Time: 9:00am to 4:00pm || Course Fee: $325.00 || Before and After-Care Available 
Every day is different! Join us for a week of STEM where campers will investigate different scientific properties and participate in many interactive hands-on activities and workshops such as: 

  • Utilize the engineering design process and work in teams to construct a catapult; 
  • Extract and view DNA from strawberries and bananas; 
  • Investigate how water moves in plants by creating your own colourful carnation; 
  • Save your egg astronaut by building them a device to safely land back to Earth unharmed; 
  • and much more! 

Intermediate Science & Engineering (Grade 5/6) 
Time: 9:00am to 4:00pm || Course Fee: $325.00 || Before and After-Care Available 
Intermediate campers will investigate physical properties related to science and engineering by: 

  • Discover the electromagnetic spectrum by examining x-rays; 
  • Explore structural engineering by designing and building a rollercoaster; 
  • Investigate natural selection and biodiversity with Darwin’s finches; 
  • Challenge your chemical and technical skills to devise the best bubble making machine; 
  • and much more! 

Senior Science & Engineering (Grade 7/8) 
Time: 9:00am to 4:00pm || Course Fee: $325.00 || Before and After-Care Available 
New technological marvels are discovered every day! Senior campers will: 

  • Learn all about the cardiovascular system; 
  • Exploring aerodynamics to engineer their own gliders; 
  • Utilize an assay to correctly identify various chemical reactions; 
  • and many other challenging and engaging STEM workshops!

Science Engagement Programs offer innovative and engaging programs designed to inspire youth and discover exciting topics in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Our programs use a discovery and inquiry-based learning approach with a focus on ‘learning by doing’. Our outreach model provides students with a chance to work in small groups on a variety of projects. This model helps foster problem solving, critical thinking, and an overall passion for STEM.

Testimonials about our in-person programs:

  • Without exaggeration, this was a life changing week for our daughter. She arrived with a curious spark about science and left with a brightly burning passion. Her instructors Vanessa and Joey inspired her like no other educators. She would leave camp totally energized. Some nights she spent 2 hours recreating her day and sharing what she had learned. Then she would spend another couple of hours researching sigma and pi bonds, chemical reactions and brainstorming ideas for next year's science fair. 

    This was the summer camp she had been wanting her whole life to be part of. It wouldn't surprise me if years from now she will look back on this week and the impact it had on her.

  • My daughter's main focus is dance. It's all she cares about. Wasn't sure how she much she would enjoy Mini Med. She was hooked from the first day. It was refreshing to hear her talk about everything she learned and how much fun she had! 
    ______________________
  • This program is a chance for my child to do and learn more. The school system limits children; it doesn’t allow them to fly. We all look for programs that give our young ones wings. 
    ______________________
  • A mix of hands-on experience and lectures, this unique introduction to the medical field beats all our expectations! It is one-of-a-kind, this seems to be the only camp that really talks about medicine and sciences which is fantastic! 

    Coming home from camp, my children go on and on about what they've learned and they talk about how they can discuss science with counselors who are studying science in university. My children will continue to delve into their science interests every summer with York University's camps.

  • My son told me that it was easy to make friends at this camp and that he learned something new that he never did before everyday. The teachers and volunteers have a lot to do with the success of this camp. I found them so enthusiastic and keen as well as knowledgeable, approachable and caring with the kids. Thank you.
