Science Rocks! Days

Welcome to Science Rocks! Days!

‌We are excited to announce the arrival of Science Rocks! Days, an extension of our week-long Science Rocks! Summer Camp program that has been going strong since 2009. These one-day events are designed for kids 9-11 and 12-13 years of age.

Send your kid to university for the day to work in a real science lab and experiment with fun activities that explore the sciences.

The $40 registration fee includes a Science Rocks! t-shirt, lab book full of cool activities all wrapped up in a full day of fun! (Price subject to change)

MASKS & VACCINE INFORMATION - updated February 2, 2022 (until further notice)

At UFV, the health and safety of our community is paramount. The Provincial Health Office (PHO) has implemented orders that directly affect UFV. Masks must be worn in all public indoor areas which include classrooms, labs, lobbies and hallways, stairwells and elevators, so masks will be required for all campers. As this is a discretionary event, we unfortunately cannot accommodate children with a mask exemption.

We request that all campers be vaccinated. Campers aged 12+ will be required to show proof of vaccination.

Student/Leader ratio: We have a limit of 24 campers for the day. The camper to instructor ratio is 6:1. In addition to the leader-facilitators, one or more UFV Science Faculty members will be on site at all times.
