Here's what everyone has to say about our science camps!
Friendly, kind counselors; my son came home each day excited to talk about what he learned, program offered a variety of activities and take-home creations to make.
Very informative and fun! Our son learned so much during his week of camp and came home excited each day about what he'd learned and done.

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.
