Mad Science’s mission is to spark the imagination and curiosity of children by providing them with fun, hands-on and educational activities. Central Texas youth have been “edu-tained” with our week-long science-themed camps since 1997. Children (ages 4 – 12 years) become junior Mad Scientists for the week, with the opportunity to experience a variety of science adventures. Campers will be able touch, see, hear, smell and taste what science is really all about. Mad Science camps are a scientifically fun time for everyone from the smallest scientist (in our pre-school camp), to the aspiring rocket scientist, robot engineers and even the undecided scientist. With fourteen completely different camp weeks to choose from there is a camp that every child will love. Camp week themes include: Science Explorations, Moving with Science, Yuckology, Rockin’ Rockets, Wings and Things, Let’s Get Growing, Red Hot Robots, Spy Academy, Camp Eureka, NASA Opsparc, Underground Explorers and 2 Imagine Arts Academy camp themes!
Each camp has two instructors to ensure there is always a helping hand nearby. Instructors are specially trained in Mad Science programming and have experience working with elementary children. Inquiry-based learning techniques that involve the campers in individual, small group and large group activities allow both the youngest of campers and the most advanced campers to enjoy our learning environment. Every camp location has is a CPR and first aid certified instructor. All Mad Science instructors have criminal background checks.
Late pick-up is provided from 4:00pm – 6:00pm for the 7-hour per day camps for an additional fee. Early drop off is included for the 7-hour per day camps as early as 8:00am. All supplies are provided for campers. Full day campers do bring their own lunches. Junior Mad Scientists should dress comfortably and come ready to have fun!
