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!
What is the camper to instructor ratio?
The camper to instructor ratio varies depending on enrollment, but will never be greater than 20 to 1. Most camps will have a lead and an assistant instructor.+
Who are the Mad Science camp instructors?
Most of our instructors are college students, former teachers, or teachers on summer break. Our instructors have experience working with large groups of elementary-aged children, have undergone an extensive background check and received summer camp specific training.+

We offer camps in Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Norfolk, and the Peninsula. Most are very close to the major highways in the Hampton Roads area & are about 15-20 minutes travel time for the majority of the population.+
