SuperNOVA School Closure Winter Camps

Attention Parents and Guardians!

With the recent school closure SuperNOVA has decided to hold some day camps for elementary school kids in grades Primary-Six! This week we will be holding full day camps from Wednesday, December 7th-Friday, December 9th, with a science and engineering theme. 
Camp will be held from 9:00-4:30, drop off from 8:30-9:00 and pick up from 4:30-5:15 PM.
Spots are very limited, so make sure to reserve your place now! 

Here are some important things to remember before sending your child to SuperNOVA!

  • This camp will run Wednesday-Friday.
  • Campers can be dropped off between 8:30-9:00 AM and picked up between 4:30-5:15 PM
  • Camp will be held on Dalhousie's Sexton campus (on Barrington Street between Spring Garden Road and Morris Street). If you follow the road into campus beside the Sexton Memorial Gym, kids will be dropped off and picked up at the top of that street in the Alumni Lounge (near Tim Hortons).
  • In the event that school is reinstated before Tuesday, December 6th at 11:59 PM, a 50% reimbursement will be given to registrants. No reimbursements will be given after that time. 
  • Please remember to pack your camper with snacks and a lunch to eat during the day. All of our snacks must be nut free!
  • Please send your child with weather appropriate clothing and footwear - campers may be required to walk between activities.
