Can I sign my child up for more than one camp?

Yes, in fact, we encourage it. Each program is completely different, so your child can enjoy them all without repeating activities! Make sure you pack a lunch if you enroll in both AM and PM Camps! Lunch time is 12-1.


Who are the Mad Science camp instructors?

Mad Science instructors tend to be college students pursing an education or science degree, former/retired teachers, or teachers on summer break. All of our instructors have experience working with large groups of elementary-aged children and have undergone an extensive background check.


What is the child to instructor ratio?

The child to instructor ratio varies depending on enrollment. We always have at least one instructor for every 20-25 students.


What's the difference between a flash camp and summer camp?

While both programs are typically about 3 hours long, a flash camp is one day only, while our summer camps are over the course of 5 days.


Happy Customers

Here's what parents have to say about our camps!

Both of our boys did Mad Science summer camps when they were younger, and loved the experience! It was a very fun and interactive experience for them. And counselor Beth Morrell is the best!!!


Raleigh, NC

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.


Silver Spring, MD

My son participated in a true "camp" with horses, swimming, fishing and hiking and he was MORE excited about this camp than anything else he's done all summer. Great job on your end!
