Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Sleepover program is on hold until further notice.
No one ever wants to leave Science East once they come for a visit, and with the sleepover program you won’t have to leave – you can sleep here! Stay up late, play games, make new friends and learn some unforgettable things along the way.
Our program caters to scouting/guiding, school and community youth groups, etc. The purpose of these sleepovers is to immerse children in science education while providing them with a unique sleepover experience. In the past, we have offered programs which assisted in meeting badge requirements; now we want to step it up a notch and invite you for a sleepover!
We currently offer 2 sleepover programs:
- Program 1: Planetarium show & an astronomy-related activity
- Program 2: Science show & a related activity (We are able to meet most scouting/guiding science badge requirements or curriculum needs, e.g chemistry, weather)
This truly is the sleepover of a lifetime! Adult leaders and campers alike will not be snoozing at the thought of seeing the stars and planets up close. And surely, mixing up some ooey gooey slimy creations would wake up the sleepiest person!
As an added bonus and a chance most people will never get, we also offer flashlight tours of our science centre. For the bravest campers only, there is another surprise in store: the flashlight tours continue into the old York County Jail Museum. Spooky!
Of course, after having all the fun a person can handle, everyone will get a little hungry. Plus, no sleepover is complete without a snack! We provide a yummy snack for all our campers and adult leaders.
The fun does not stop when bedtime comes; you will all cozy up in your sleeping bags and dream about all the awesome things that happened at your sleepover at Science East. Then wake up to enjoy a healthy breakfast (cereal, fruit and juice) before departing.
