For the camper who wants to try it all, there is our Operation Exploration Camp! Each day, campers will explore a variety of diverse scientific topics through fun hands on exploration.
Discover why an egg’s shape is so strong. Put gravity to the test – working with your “egg-cellent” team, protect your egg from this super force. Test loads and build bridges when you put on an engineer’s hat and learn about structures. Explore other forces in motion when you ride a home- made hovercraft, and build some cool vehicles.
Birds, Bugs and Beasts
Where do owls live and what do they eat? Can homing pigeons really find their way home – we will see this in action! How do some bugs walk on water? Identify animal foot prints, bite marks and skeletons! These questions and more will be answered with a walk on the wild side of things.
Do you crave bubbling potions, slimy ooze and ghoulish glowing objects? It's time to break out the lab coat and do Mad Science! Campers will have tons of fun mixing up potions and experimenting with all kinds of chemical reactions!
Let’s Explore our Earth
Explore our earth and surroundings, from air pressure to weather phenomena. Study pollution, even cleaning up a real oil spill. Put your geologist hat on as we study rocks, minerals, earthquakes and volcanoes.
Time for Some Physics
Learn about theories of optics, and build a periscope to spy on your fellow scientists. Study sound waves and put them into practice with your own home made harmonica. Is it magnetism or magic? And more fun time with static and current electricity!
Mad “Science Fair” and Family Finale
Junior scientists will use their imagination and creativity to get ready for the Mad “Science Fair” and our Friday finale rocket launch!
Mad Science will be welcoming a number of guest speakers throughout the week, experts in their fields, to help us learn more about science and how it impacts the world around us.
Have fun with theme days like PJ day, Backwards day, Crazy hat day and Wacky hair day!
