Camp Information

More fun than sitting around playing video games! Challenge your kids brains with fun experiments, cool make-and-take projects and games guaranteed to fill those empty summer days with fun and learning!

We partner with your local YMCA to bring Mad Science and Imagine Arts Academy camps to locations across the Niagara Region. Half the day is spent in our hands-on science or arts programming, and the remainder is filled with YMCA day camp activities. This allows us to provide the bet of both worlds - high quality STEAM based programming, and the camp infrastructure of the YMCA including busing, extended care, and swimming (at most locations) for only $210 per full week of full day camp.

The YMCA Daycamp office can be contacted at 905-934-9755 x280.
