Information for Students

 The Discovery Centre in partnership with Imhotep’s Legacy Academy (ILA) will hold summer camps for students interested in plant science, gardening, and hydroponic growing.

Campers will discover and learn about various hands-on planting and gardening techniques and participate in planting a shared plot at the Akoma Community Garden.

The Sprouting Science Camps are FREE for African Nova Scotian students, ages 8-12.

Students should select only one camp of choice as  the content will be the same for both camps.

Camp Dates

August 7th, 2023 – August 11th, 2023
