Mad Science Summer Camps are a BLAST!!


What types of programs do you offer?

Mad Science offers interactive programs to children who are ready to learn! Campers will be engaged in exciting activities and spectacular demonstrations designed to capture their attention and imagination. Each day, campers will receive a take home project to reinforce what they learned in our program.  


Which ages benefit most from your camp programs?

Most of our camps are designed for children who are entering 1st grade through children who have just completed 5th grade. 


Who are the Mad Science camp instructors?

Our instructors love children and science! All of our staff members have experience guiding groups of children into learning experiences. Instructors are vigorously trained for the experiments they will be conducting, as well as educated and experienced on how to handle the materials safely. Most importantly, Mad Science conducts background checks on all instructors prior to being assigned to our programs. 


Does Mad Science have a minimum enrollment requirement?

Mad Science requires that each camp has a minimum of 15 children enrolled in order to run. We will inform parents as soon as possible if a camp may not reach its minimum enrollment. 


What should my child bring/wear to camp?

Mad Science provides all equipment and materials for our in-camp experiments and take-home projects. Please dress your child in play clothes with close-toed shoes, and hat and or/sunglasses. Also, you may apply sunscreen and/or insect repellent prior to dropping your child off.


Please send a snack and water bottle with your child each day. Please send non-perishable snacks only. Also, please avoid foods containing peanuts, due to allergies. 


How soon do I need to register my child for camp?

We recommend you register as soon as possible! Spaces are limited and space availability frequently depends on timely registrations.
