Virtual Camp Descriptions

Brain, mind, think, idea

Operation Shipwrecked Science

Kids will be given a design challenge using only a limited amount of materials. They will create a message in a bottle, build a boat and a shelter learning all about the science & engineering behind survival along the way. They will use the sun and stars to both cook & navigate and discover critical thinking skills.

We will check out our skills of observation with interactive games, explore the differences in ink and create a room schematic.

Solar System, planets, space, universe, milky way

Space Adventures

Explore from our planet to the stars and moons from the safety of your home. We will explore our solar system, stars and galaxies, space travel designing and building our own model rocket. Then we will discuss life in space and the tools we need to conquer the challenges.

Eco System, trees, sun, rain

Backyard Science

Science is everywhere - including your backyard. During this camp we will explore the animals and plants that call your backyard home. We will make a bug home, study plants vascular systems and more. Then we will learn how to keep our environment clean talking about recycling (even recycling paper) and using natural dyes to paint.

Builders & Inventors

Most inventors, innovators and builders - just need one thing - inspiration. That is what kids will get with this camp as we explore the world of flight, construction and simple machines. We will build bridges, design a Rube Goldberg machine and make the best paper flyers.

FAQ

Can I sign my child up for more than one camp?

Yes, in fact, we encourage it. Each program is completely different, so your child can enjoy them all without repeating activities!

Who are the Mad Science camp instructors?

Mad Science instructors tend to be college students pursing an education or science degree, former/retired teachers, or teachers on vacation. All of our instructors have experience working with large groups of elementary-aged children and have undergone an extensive background check.

+

Are your virtual camps, interactive?

Yes they are - the time is spent learning about various topics, while also building and conducting experiments at home. Each class is presented by an instructor and moderator for optimum use of time.

+

What grade is my child for camp?

The grade for camp will be the rising/entering grade level - i.e. you current kindergartner will be a 1st grader for the summer. Be sure to change your child's grade before registering for the summer.

Is lunch or snacks provided at camp?

Occasional "snack"tivities are part of camp, but not each camp or day. Children should bring snack, lunch, and water each day for camp. If your child has any allergies or dietary restrictions you inform us at registration.

My children loved the program. They came home every day talking about how much fun they had doing the activities.

My son attended the Earth, Space & Beyond Mad Science Camp last summer and absolutely loved it! The hours were convenient for our family, and the location was close by for us. We're sending him again to a Mad Science camp this upcoming summer. These are well run camps, in our experience, and I recommend them for people looking for a fun, science-based camp experience.
