SuperNOVA Summer Camps

SuperNOVA Summer Camps introduce participants to STEM concepts, careers, and mentors through fun experiments and innovative hands-on activities.

Registration for Summer Camps 2023 is now open!

Camp projects and activities are developed and delivered by undergraduate university students and are designed to match participants’ grade level, interests, and abilities.

Our summer camps are based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, at Dalhousie University.


Thanks to generous contributions of our supporters, we are proud to provide full and partial bursaries to youth who may face financial barriers and would otherwise be unable to participate in our programming.

How to choose the right camp

We recommend that you register your child in the camp age group of the grade they will be entering in September. For example, if your child is currently in Grade 2 in this academic year, you should choose the camps for Grade 3.
