If you’re a parent looking for a way to prevent the chorus of ‘I’m borrrrrrred’ in your house this coming summer, consider giving your childa week to remember at the University of the Fraser Valley.
Back by popular demand, UFV’s Science Rocks! summer day camps are designed for local students going into Grades 4-7 (as of Sept ’13). Each of the five different camps is structured to encourage the development of scientific problem-solving skills and to help campers learn fundamental scientific principles in a fun, hands-on way.
A week-long camp is $250, and includes all supplies, lunches, t-shirt, and completion certificate. There is a discount if you enroll your child in more than one week, or if you have more than camper: two camp registrations is $450; three $675; four $900; five $1,150.
