Science camps offering a fun, interactive learning environment with some basic electricity, chemistry, physics, and biology will be running this summer in Grand Forks and Christina Lake.

The three camps, running through Selkirk College, are for youth ages six – 12 years-of-age.  Camps are three days in duration with two taking place in Grand Forks and one at Christina Lake Welcome Centre.

Participants will be given lots of opportunity for hands on experience.  Local science teacher, Haley Rymer from Grand Forks Senior Secondary, is excited about the opportunity to expose children to the fun of science at a younger age.

This program is supported by Community Futures Boundary, Kootenay Association of Science and Technology, Regional District of Kootenay Boundary in partnership with Selkirk College. Dates are July 4 – 6, July 24 – 26 and Aug. 28 – 30 and they will cost $99.

Pre registration is required by contacting the Selkirk College Grand Forks Campus at 250- 442-2704 or email jwetmore@selkirk.ca.
