Camps cancelled

SUMMER SCIENCE camps have been cancelled this year due to lack of money but organizers are working hard to ensure they return next year.

SUMMER SCIENCE camps have been cancelled this year due to lack of money but organizers are working hard to ensure they return next year.

The Northwest Science and Innovation Society (NSIS) had its financing cut this year with the result being that the society couldn’t offer science camps, says Christine Slanz, executive director of NSIS.

“We will be working with both Northwest Community College and the University of Northern BC over the next year to form some type of partnership to offer science camps next summer,” says Slanz.

“The idea will be to hold them in a variety of locations across the Northwest region, not just in Terrace.” The society is currently putting together applications for financing to help cover the costs of science camps for next summer, she adds.

The University of Northern BC also is skipping its summer science camps for children this year.
