OLYMPIC WEEK

The Olympic Games might be canceled but the competitions are going strong at NII’s Summer Camp.

RANDOM ACTS OF SCIENCENESS

The best of the rest! We have compiled the 5 best experiments that we couldn’t get to throughout the summer. We are going to make some marshmallow guns pop, some watermelons explode, and some electric circuits light up. We’ll finish off the summer with evening activities painting, dancing, and our camp sing-a-long.

DID WE TELL YOU IT'S FREE!

The camp is brought to you by volunteers from Ontario's nuclear industry. ​We want summer 2020 to be filled with awesome and happy memories for the children of Ontario.
