Camp Information

First Day of Camp

On the first day of camp bring your Camp Waiver with you and know which camp your camper is registered in. We have 6 camps that run consecutively, and more than one camp for the same age group. Proceed to the cafe area and check in at the appropriate camp table.

When to Arrive

If you have pre/post care you can arrive anytime between 7:30 and 9:00 am. If you do not require pre/post care then we suggest that you arrive 15 minutes prior to 9:00 am to check in.

Drop Off and Pick Up (Full Day)

When you are dropping off your child please proceed to the Cafe to check-in if you arrive BEFORE 8:45 am on the first morning of camps. There will be signs to guide you. If you arrive AFTER 8:45 am please proceed directly to the camp rooms, by following the signs. The rest of the week, after you know your way around, you can proceed directly to the camp room or cafe. Please ensure you have your camp pass with you to get through the gallery gate. In the afternoon, please pick up your child from the camp room unless post camp supervision was purchased. In that case, please pick up your child in the lunch room adjacent to the Cafe.

Camp fees include drop-off starting at 8:45 am and pick-up by 4:15 pm.

Guardians are required to have documented the name, phone number and relationship of anyone that will be picking up their camper on their Camp Waiver. Camp staff will not allow an adult that is not listed on the document to take the camper home. We will be verifying with a sign out sheet for all adults picking up campers at the beginning and end of the day. All adults coming to pick up campers need to bring with them the camp pass to be let through the gallery gate.

In the event you will be late picking up your child, please be prompt and give us a call. There will be a $25 +GST late pick-up fee charged for every 15 minutes (or portion thereof) beyond your child's pick-up time.  If you have purchased pre- and post-camp supervision, the additional charge will commence at 5:30 pm.

What to Bring

Please ensure that your child is dressed for the weather. Campers will be outdoors for part of their lunch break if the weather permits. Camps can be messy, so keep this in mind with your camper’s clothes as well. You won’t need to send any supplies with the campers, other than snacks (peanut-free) for morning and afternoon breaks and lunch if you’ve opted not to purchase the summer camp lunch program.

Lunch and Snacks 

Due to certain dietary restrictions for some children, camp participants are advised to bring a peanut-free and nut-free snack or lunch with them.

Registrants can bring a bagged lunch or they can purchase lunch in our café. Staff and volunteers will provide all lunch hour supervision for children attending camps.

Summer Camp Lunch Program is also available, details below. 

Alberta Health Care Number

Our primary concern is for the safety of our campers! In the unlikely event that your child requires medical attention while they are in our care, it is vital that we are able to relay their Alberta Health Care number on to medical professionals immediately.

Electronic Devices

We kindly request that all sensitive electronic devices, including mobile phones, iPods, iPads, cameras and gaming consoles, be left at home to avoid damage and distraction.

Camp Age Requirements

TELUS World of Science camps are designed and piloted to be challenging and engaging for the stated age range. To ensure that all campers get the most out of their experience we restrict registration to those children who are in the stated age range of a particular camp, unless special accommodations have been made.

Behaviour Policy

We work hard to ensure that camps at TELUS World of Science are an amazing experience for all campers. Part of that commitment to you requires that we ensure no child disrupts the enjoyment of the other campers through ongoing aggressive behaviour, bullying, the use of inappropriate language or other disruptive actions. We actively monitor these behaviours and after appropriate steps are taken with the parent, we may request a camper cease coming to camp. Specific details are outlined on the Camp Waiver's Behaviour Agreement that all parents and campers have to sign before beginning a camp.

Special Pre- and Post-Camp Supervision

This program is ideal for parents who need to drop their children off more than 15 minutes before the start of any camp. Morning pre-camp supervision will be held from 7:30 am to 8:45 am and post-camp supervision will be held from 4:15 pm to 5:30 pm. It is located in our lunch rooms behind our Cafe. The cost of this program is $35 +GST per participant for the week and can be purchased when the camp is booked or at the Box Office on the first day of camp.

There will be a $25.00 +GST late pick-up fee charged, for every 15 minutes (or portion thereof) beyond the 5:30 pm pick-up time.

Camp Lunch Program

The Summer Camp Lunch Program offers a discount on lunch and is available exclusively for camp participants. Choose your child’s lunch from a variety of menu options, so you won’t have to worry about them carrying cash around or having to prepare their lunches. You can even plan your child’s meal for the week by using our handy menu selections. Lunch packages can be purchased at the same time as your camp booking. Purchase lunches for the week in advance of the 1st day of camp and pay $35.00 +GST (5-day week).
