Camp Descriptions


Mad Science Camp Topics Include:


Adventures in the Wild: Take a walk on the wild side with Mad Science as we explore animals, birds, bugs and beasts for an out of this world adventure! Have some creepy, crawly fun building a bug house and fill it with new friends to take home. Explore the amazing ways animals adapt in the wilderness as you hunt down their tracks and make an animal track of your own. Discover what a night-hunting owl found for dinner by taking part in an owl pellet dissection. Let the adventure begin! Camp is appropriate for ages 5-10.

Anatomy Academy: Mad Science is on a mission to fascinate campers with the inner workings of the human body. This heart pumping, chest pounding, dynamic discovery camp is sure to blow their minds! Campers will use ooey-gooey ingredients to build a model cell and test their own traits to decode and decipher DNA. Campers will discover what keeps them alive as they take a trip down the organ trail. Mad mucus, canister cannons and foamy fat will thrill all junior chemists. So join Mad Science for a gross look at the human body! Camp is appropriate for ages 6-11.

Brixology NEWPut your hardhat on and step into the shoes of an engineer as you spend the week learning about aerospace, mechanical, automotive, structural and nautical engineering. Through hands on construction projects using LEGO® bricks, teams of campers will complete engineering projects of varying difficulty levels. They will learn about aerospace engineering while assembling a space station, explore mechanical engineering while building boats and vehicles, and discover nature’s engineering secrets while investigating bio mimicry. But that’s not all – from carnival rides to drawing machines, mechanical animals to truss bridges, your future engineer will have a blast exploring all the wonders the world of engineering holds. Let the tinkering begin! Camp is appropriate for ages 7-11.


Crazy Chem-Works: 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. Camp is appropriate for ages 5-10.

Mad Science All-Stars: Join Mad Science and become an all-star! Learn about famous scientists and inventors who were stars in their field of expertise. Follow in their footsteps as we equip you with the science skills needed to rise to the top. Together with your teammates you will build super structures, create a volcanic eruption and examine rocks formed from volcanic magma. Soar high above as you build a kite and experiment with lift, aerodynamics and air pressure. Discover the secret behind the stars and make a star chart. Camp is appropriate for ages 5-10.

NASA Space Academy: Mad Science and NASA have teamed up to bring you the excitement and wonder of space in the NASA Space Academy camp. This is your chance to be a rocket scientist! Explore the science involved in rocket construction as you build your own rocket. Watch an amazing rocket launch as it soars to the sky. Use teamwork to complete an important space mission and build a model space station. Explore the farthest reaches of our solar system and create a lunar eclipse in our Mad Science planetary tour. This stellar camp is your ticket to the stars as you journey through the galaxy. Camp is appropriate for ages 6-11.

Robot Recruit: Join Mad Science for an introduction to robots! Throughout the week, campers will become robot engineers as they build a unique motorized robot that transforms into four unique creatures, each increasing in difficulty. Discover the inner workings of robots by experimenting with circuits, gears, sensors and power supplies. Learn about robot programming and the different tasks robots perform in our world. Experiment with sound sensing, line tracking and solar powered robots. Camp is appropriate for ages 5-9.
