Mad Science Summer Camp

Join Us For “The Best Summer Camp Ever!”

Kids everywhere LOVE Mad Science Summer Camp!  Look for this awesome day camp in your town!  Each camp day is jam packed with awesome demonstrations, tons of hands-on activities and lots of indoor and outdoor fun.

Children from grades 1-6 will enjoy learning about a variety of science principles, interacting with our awesome Camp Counselors and having fun with friends!

Our hands-on approach to science learning instills in each child, a love for all things science and a confidence in their ability to grasp a sometimes feared area of learning!

Crank up your cranium with an awesome week of Mad Science Summer Camp! 

Choose any or all of our four cool themes!


Beast,Bridges & Brews

Campers will shake, rattle and roll the world of simple machines as they are challenged to build bridges and a four foot high Geodesic Dome. Everyone will speak bird and be a bit buggy while they build bug and bird houses. Mixing, mashing and brewing will result in cool sidewalk chalk and bath fizzers during a day in the chemistry lab. The wonders of photography will be revealed as children learn about cameras, light and colours.  Daily themes include:  Jr. Engineers, Machine Mania, Crazy Chemistry, The Birds & The Beasts, Shutterbugs


Flight Academy

The week will fly by as we travel through time looking at the earliest flying machines right up to modern day rocket launches. We’ll cover it all. Become a Junior Aviator and discover the principals of flight and aerodynamics. Zip up your space suit for a planetary tour while we investigate the wonders of our very own Milky Way.  Join your fellow astronauts as we send an awesome Mad Science rocket to the moon…well at least into the sky! As Mad Science Technicians, you will build sundials, telescopes, parachutes and an incredible wind tunnel simulator.   It will be a blast!  Daily themes include:  The Wright Stuff, It’s An Up Thing!, The Milky Way, Newtons Loco-Motion, Rockin’ Rockets


Rocket Camp

Yes we are Rocket Scientists! All things rocket will be explored. This action packed week focuses on the physics of rocket flight, the parts of a rocket and rocket launches. Campers will build several types of rockets and participate in the launching of at least 10 different rockets. Children will be divided into three groups for each rocket launch; Altitude Trackers, Launch Preparers and Launchers. They will have the opportunity to experience all three roles over the course of the week. Daily themes include:  Rocket Basics, Rocket Flight, Mission Control, Rocket Propulsion & Recovery, Go for Launch!


Claws, Codes & Constellations

A week of sleuthing, investigation and discovery await campers. Secret code wheels, Morse code and hidden messages will be decoded. We will hunt down animal tracks and follow scent trails during a day of nature discoveries. The wonders of gravity, balance and the science behind the elusive sweet spot will be investigated. Everyone will be challenged not to break an egg during our crazy egg toss. A renewed appreciation for the earth and the role science can play in preserving our planet will emerge. The marvels of astronomy will be revealed when we make a telescope. Daily themes include: Mad Messages, Earth Awareness, The Science of Sport, Nature, Space Day

Ho Ho Hold your spot for some great Christmas events

I know it’s hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner, especially since we just got the kids back to school.  Just take a walk through your local Costco and you will see Christmas goods right over by the meat section. At Costco if you don’t pick something up the first time you see it, it will be gone the next time you go.  Same goes with certain special events at Christmas time.  Tickets for sign up only Christmas events are already on sale (or are really soon) and you don’t want to miss out so I have a attached a list of some of the Christmas favourites for you.
