Volunteering

SCI-FI Science Camps recruits high-school students (Grades 10-12) to volunteer as a Counselors-in-Training.

CIT Program (Counselor in Training)

CIT registration is now closed for 2022!

Due to the COVID19 pandemic, applications have been closed for previous years. We are excited to announce that we will be re-opening our CIT program for Summer 2022! Applications had to be submitted by May 31st at 4:30pm. There is no fee to apply.

We would like to invite all Saskatoon and area high-school students to apply for a volunteer position as a Counselor-In-Training (CIT) this summer. SCI-FI Science Camps, founded in 1989, has continuously provided a unique approach to teaching Science and Technology to Saskatchewan youth. SCI-FI, along with other Actua camps, continue to show children that science is exciting, challenging, useful, and most of all, FUN!

Who?

Any enthusiastic student who will be finishing Grade 9 or higher. Applicants should demonstrate an interest in: science and technology, working with children, as well as possess leadership and teamwork skills.

What?

CITs are high-school who have passion for science and technology. Our CITs work alongside our instructors to provide SCI-FI campers the opporunity to learn about science and technology through hands-on activities. Some the roles for CITs are: assisting instructors and campers with camp activities, taking photographs, helping fix broken projects and performing other daily camp tasks. 

Where?

SCI-FI Science Camps is operated through the College of Engineering on the U of S Campus.

When?

Our weeklong day camps run for 7 weeks during July and August, starting the first week of July and ending in late August. Due to the training we provide we would ask that volunteers apply for 2 weeks if possible.

It's a good idea to volunteer at SCI-FI, because you get to:

  • Work side-by-side with University of Saskatchewan students who are enrolled in a variety of different fields such as: Engineering, Education, Medicine, and Veterinary medicine.
  • Develop new skills
  • Create new friendships
  • Gain volunteer experience
  • Build references for your resume
  • Contribute to a program that reaches over 10,000 youth every year across the province
  • Learn how SCI-FI works, which is good experience if you want to be a SCI-FI instructor during your university career
  • Have FUN!!!
