Here's what parents have to say about our camps!
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
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!!!
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!
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! You even receive a discount if you sign up for multiple camps!+
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 12-15 students.+
Can a camp cancel?
Mad Science camps are registration based. If we do not reach the minimum number (6-9 children), we would have to cancel the camp. If this might happen, we touch base with all parents a week prior to the camp to present options. If a camp cancels, parents will receive a refund within 7-10 days.+
What is your refund policy?
If a camper is pulled out less than 14 days from the start date, a $75 registration fee is held. No refunds are given once the camp has started. All refunds are subject to a 10% processing fee.+
