The Phenomenal Physics Summer Camp is an annual summer camp program run by UBC Department of Physics & Astronomy. Camp participants engage in fun scientific activities designed to encourage thinking and experimenting. In the past, they have experimented with electricity, designed hovercrafts, constructed Martian habitats, conducted chemistry experiments and played with tornado tubes and musical instruments. Our goal is to stimulate the minds of these young scientists, and inspire them to explore science further in the future.
Volunteers are expected to commit to at least one week of volunteering for our summer camp program (Volunteer hours are Monday to Friday, 8:30am – 4:30pm, two-week commitment preferred). All volunteers are required to attend a training day prior to volunteering. Volunteers will be supervised by the summer camp teachers and camp leaders (UBC undergraduate students). Responsibilities of volunteers include:
assisting camp teachers and camp leaders in running camp activities
setting up before activities and cleaning up after activities
interacting with and supervising campers
helping maintain a safe and positive camp environment at all times
