There’s an adventure happening at TELUS Spark this summer! Will you get lost in the maze? Make an explosion? Maybe you’ll feel like cozying up by the fire with s’mores? TELUS Spark is inviting you to come outside and play this summer with Operation Explore! Operation Explore has endless summer activities for kids and families. The outdoor space at TELUS Spark has been transformed to create a one-of-a-kind experience that will allow your kids to discover and play outside. So don’t miss the chance to have an adventure this summer, without leaving the city!
Operation Explore is included with your admission or membership to TELUS Spark and offers an amazing playground for kids (and kids of all ages!). With the multitude of activities offered, there will be something that appeals to any age, ability, or interest. It will inspire the kids and remind the parents of just how much fun it is to get outside and play.
Test your directional skills in the mind-busting maze, complete with puzzles and games. Or inspect the hilltop hide-outs and forts. Every day at 12:30 pm and 4:30 pm (weather permitting) there will be a massive science demonstration, showing why science is so much fun! If the little explorers want to develop their creative side, at 11 am every day there will be an opportunity to make personalized flags. You never know when you’ll have to be ready to stake your claim! Plus, on August 21st, you can come out to Operation Explore for the biggest astronomical event of the season: a solar eclipse party! Make your own eclipse viewer and use the telescopes to see this unique event.
Of course, all that playing makes an explorer hungry, but never fear! Every day, one hour before close, you can join the campfire and make your own s’mores (cost of s’more kit is extra) for a delicious end to your adventure. Or, on Thursdays from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm, you can join a weekly outdoor family BBQ with the new Social Eatery (cost of food is extra). Grab some food, take a seat and enjoy the sun!
The Brainasium outdoor space at TELUS Spark is an epic learning park, and now Operation Explore offers even more enjoyment and adventure. Learning about our world can be fun and exciting, especially when you get to experience and explore it first-hand. So, set your imagination free and come out and play this summer!
