2019 Half Day Summer Camps 


Underground Explorers Camp Ages 7-12   Brand new camp!

Kids learn about archaelology and the techniques scientists use to excavate long lost cities! They discover ancient civilizations and the tools and artifacts they used in everyday life! They also study bone fragments, pottery shards, amber deposits, and make fossils to understand what they can tell us about history! Each class includes a make and take-home project, like a fossil reproduction, an amber time capsule, and coins from around the world!


Mad Science NASA Camp: Academy of Future Space Explorers     Ages 5-12
Mad Science has teamed up with NASA in a quest for exploration! We’ll take a voyage of discovery into the atmosphere and beyond as we explore planets, moons, and other space phenomena in our solar system. Things will heat up as we examine the sun and other stars and discover the difficulties of space travel! Kids will get a firsthand experience of the challenges of living in space as they try assemble a satellite while training to be an astronaut. For added fun, we’ll learn about the various technologies that make space exploration possible while bouncing lasers around the room! Kids will love to build their own Mad Science rocket, and participate in a real “NASA” style rocket launch.  Campers will have lots of projects to make and many cool NASA take homes, including a gravity assisted launcher, a Shuttle Copter, and more!   Mad Science is the ONLY organization licensed by NASA to use these activities for summer camps and school programs.    


Brixology Camp     Ages 7-12
Brixology Camp sets the foundation for our next generation of makers! Children learn about different types of engineering and then team up to construct a different engineering-themed project using LEGO® bricks. We’ll learn about aerospace engineering while assembling a space station. We’ll explore mechanical engineering as we build boats and vehicles. That's not all - from carnival rides to drawing machines, mechanical animals to truss bridges, your future engineer will build upon their creativity to solve real-world design challenges, while developing their problem-solving and team-building skills. Let the tinkering begin!  Campers receive daily custom Mad Science brick take homes.  


Crazy Chemworks Camp     Ages 5-12
Shake up a flask of fun in the lab and become a junior chemist! Learn to recognize chemical reactions and mix up a few reactive ingredients for some sensational results. Check out the colors of chemistry with the power of pH paper and create a stopper-popping reaction. Probe the properties of light and discover some unusual applications of glow-in-the-dark technology. Campers have a blast as they make some crazy concoctions. Take home projects include a reaction tube kit, atomic coins, thermocolor cup, slippery slime, Professor Beakerdude and more!


Eureka – The Inventor’s Camp     Ages 5-12
Inspire the inventor and scientist in you! Campers will overcome a series of challenges using basic materials, simple machines, tips from famous inventors and the most important of all----their mind! With a little bit of ingenuity children will create catapults and forts, and even construct their own working Light Sabers to take home!! While Thomas Edison said "invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration", this camp is 100% FUN!


Mission: CODE      Ages 8-14
Mission: Code is a unique summer camp experience that allows kids to learn essential coding skills while also engaging in active games and hands-on learning.  Kids will develop computational thinking and problem solving skills in an online game environment where you give a robot a set of instructions to follow in order to solve the level. Each coding session provides kids with a fundamental skill set including algorithms, functions, relative directions and sequences. The combination of online activities paired with engaging offline activities like scavenger hunts, code-cracking mysteries and team robotics challenges that keep kids active and reinforce coding skills is a winning formula for fun in the summer! 

My First Lab for Preschoolers    Ages 3-5

Junior Scientists will take in science around them in the brand new Mad Science camp for preschoolers! Step into an astronaut's shoes as we travel to space, work your muscles as we learn about our skeletons, and catch your shadow as we look at light! A Mad Science symphony will take place as we listen to how music is made, and a magnet exploration will help everything stick together. Between hands-on experiments and fun take-homes, this camp is sure to excite all our curious preschoolers and kindergarteners!

Ages 3.5 - 5 years old. Must be able to use the bathroom independently. 


Program Details--

  • Classes meet Monday -Friday for 4 hours (preschool camps are 3 hours)
  • Class is filled with fun hands-on experiments and cool take home items!
  • Children should bring a drink and snack to camp (no peanut products, please)

All Day Camps 


Big Top Science

Join us as we learn about the science behind the things we see in a circus. We'll start the day off with our Mad Scientist Ring Master performing our Big Top Science Show. Kids will love to learn about the chemistry and physic concepts found in the circus acts. After the show, Jr. Scientists will experiment and try the experiments they just witnessed, such as writing secret messages, experimenting with our bed of nails, charming bubble snakes and learning the science behind Cotton Candy (while tasting a sample!)


The Science of Slime

That's right! This one day camp is all about creating gooey globs of fun, better known as Slime! With the help of the Mad Science instructor, Jr. Scientists will get to whip up several different slime recipes and spend the day learning about polymers. Glitter Slime, Glow in the Dark Slime, Orb Slime - the possibilities are endless as kids experiment at our Slime Bar and create 3 different kinds of polymers. Jr. Scientists will also test their slime creations in a series of fun games and activities know as the Slime Olympics! 

Program Details -

  • Appropriate for children ages 5-12 years old
  • Class is filled with fun hands-on experiments and cool take home items!
  • Class meets for 1 day for 8 hours
  • Children should bring their own lunch, drink and snack to camp (no peanut products, please)


We also offer 1 day, 4 hour “Mini” Afternoon Camps -

3-2-1 Blast Off!

This is your chance to be a rocket scientist! Become and aerospace engineer and work in teams to build a real rocket! We'll learn about the amazing forces that affect flight; then, put these forces to the test as we watch our rockets blast off high into the air! Kids will build their very own propeller powered Shuttle Copter to continue the high-flying fun at home!


Mad Science Robot Invasion

Explore the basic and complex technology used to design and build robots. Discover how machines and robots work and how they make our lives easier. Learn about simple circuits, motor principles, and make your own robot hand to take home.  Jr. Scientists will love playing with the many robots we bring along!


Science Mysteries and Magic

Kids will become an Engineer, Chemist—and even a Magician! Children will investigate physics fundamentals and use their scientific minds to analyze simple magic tricks. Jr. Scientists will be shocked by what they learn about electricity and, blown away by their experiments with air pressure!                                    


Program Details--

  • Appropriate for children ages 5-12 years old
  • Classes are filled with fun hands-on experiments and cool take home items!
  • Class meets 1 day for 4 hours
