The countdown to summer is officially on! Only a few weeks of school are remaining, and that means a lot of kids in Edmonton will have plenty of free time on their hands.
To help keep our kids busy, our team did a little research to find some activities that will keep them entertained and happy during the next couple of months. Take a look at some of favourite options below!

Science camps at the TWOS have arrived – and already selling out! These multi-day events immerse kids in a full sensory experience that is sure to ignite their imagination. Enjoy themes like Dino Diggers where students will use paleontological skills to uncover dinosaur fossils, eggs, and bones; Science Wizardry that gives kids the chance to learn the secrets behind mysterious science experiments; and even a Gamecraft camp that offers gamers an opportunity to design and construct a video game using Scratch programming!
