Summer Camps Themes

        (Ages 6-11)


Young biologists use all their senses when they explore the natural world around them.  Have fun finding and magnifying nature’s smallest creatures, pour plaster casts of animal tracks, and make recycled paper! Discover how birds thrive and solve the mystery of what Mr. Owl ate for lunch! Make and take home something every day like a cell model, a creature habitat and more fun stuff!



               (Ages 6-11)

From decoding messages to metal detectors and night vision, campers have the opportunity to check out spy tech equipment and take-home lots of gadgets! Step into the shoes of a detective as you uncover the science involved in evidence gathering and analysis! Figure out the science of forensics and reveal who is behind those crazy capers! Become a super spy and learn clever ways of performing tasks as we take a hands-on view of the science that spies use!

        (Ages 6-11)

Explore the basic principles of flight, ride a hovercraft, build airplanes, and construct balloon copters! This hands-on Mad Science program teaches you all about aerodynamics and the world above us! Discover the mysteries of the galaxy, learn about celestial navigation, and take home a rocket that you build yourself!

  (Ages 6-11)

Have a ton of fun as we whip up potions and experiment with all kinds of chemical reactions, including growing our own crystals, making sidewalk chalk, and learning the science of chromatography on a Mad Science Lab Coat we get to keep!! Mix it up as we experiment with molecular madness, radical reactions, and “fizz”-ical and chemical reactions. Discover what those crazy chemists are really up to in their laboratories! 

         (Ages 6-11)     

Mad Science and NASA have teamed up to bring you the excitement and wonder of space in this new voyage of discovery. See the principles of thrust and propulsion at work as we explore the atmosphere on earth and beyond! Watch star dust burn, and journey through a galaxy as you investigate the life cycle of stars. Explore the farthest reaches of our solar system and create a lunar eclipse in this “mad” planetary tour. Probe the mysteries of meteors and bounce around satellite light as you learn about space phenomena. This is an experience that is truly out of this world! 

(Ages 6-11)

Junior Mad Scientists dive into the realms of the Chemical and Physical world in this crazy week of non-stop action – and Reaction! Kids explore our wonderlab and find eggs that don’t break, ice that doesn’t melt, and discover how to freeze time! Our young chemists perform spectacular hands on experiments and continue the fun at home with the gadgets they’ve designed in the lab!


         (Ages 6-11)
We bring chess pieces to life using creative personalities.  Our imaginative characters accelerate the learning process and fascinate children.  Play with out giant chess set - the biggest you've ever seen!  Find out why chess is the most popular game in the world.  We cover all rules, strategies and tactics.  This camp is appropriate for beginners through intermediate players.
(Ages 4-6)

Flowers and minds can’t blossom without STEMs. This camp is specially designed for inquisitive pre-K or Kinder-“Gardeners”.  Kids discover how to paint with wind, build a bug model, start their own garden and learn what nature needs to make their plants grow! Non-stop activities keep your little Mad Scientists engaged and focused! Kids give it two Green Thumbs up!!

(Ages 7-12)

Whether your child loves to build things or destroy them, this week of camp includes lots of both! Junior Mad Science engineers design and build structures using simple tools and their imaginations. Then the machine madness starts…children discover how different machines, both simple and complex, are used in our daily lives! Kids design simple machines using pulleys, wedges, screws and levers and have fun learning how catapults work! We use the skills we’ve learned to build a Mad Science robot that we can keep, all while learning the science of robotics!


(Ages 7-12)

Creative Contraption Warning!  This Mad Science camp is designed by you—the Inventor! Each day you’ll be given a series of challenges which must be overcome using basic materials, simple machines, tips from world famous inventors and the most important thing of all – your imagination! With a little bit of ingenuity, you’ll construct catapults and forts, then lay siege to the castle. Assemble your own working light saber to take home! While Thomas Edison said, invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration; this camp is 100% fun!


        (Ages 6-12) 

BRIXOLOGY builds the foundation for our next generation of makers! Take home a different LEGO™ inspired project each day! Learn about aerospace engineering while assembling a space station. Explore mechanical engineering as we build boats and vehicles. From carnival rides to machines that draw we take creativity to a whole new level and solve real-world design challenges! Let the tinkering begin!!

   (Ages 4-6) 

Find out just how much fun Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) can be with our unique and exciting hands-on activities! We put our engineering and technology skills to use and build structures, explore space and discover magnetic levitation! Basic math concepts such as units of measure, shapes, problem solving, addition and subtraction are used during our crazy experiments! Kids will continue the fun and learning at home with experiments they’ve made at camp!

(Ages 4-6)

Junior Mad Scientists dive in to the realms of science with non-stop, hands-on fun! Learn about everything from Air Pressure to Zebras! This week of discovery introduces kids to all facets of science. Explore the science of the sea and the fascinating creatures that live there. Campers become paleontologists by searching for fossils and participating in a mini dinosaur dig. We become bubbleologists as we learn about the science of bubbles! 


(Ages 8-12)
Designed especially for the inquisitive minds of middle-schoolers, these courses will enable your students to delve into a variety of science-related topics.  Special age-appropriate experiments will allow prospective scientists to test their own hypotheses in a variety of areas, including chemistry, rocket science and aerodynamics, and the wacky world of robots.
