Typical Day of Virtual Camp

Virtual camps are designed with the same pace of activity as our in-person camps! This includes instruction, demonstrations, and interactive activities. It also includes time for independent work on at-home projects and activities, during which time our Mad Scientist is available to answer questions and actively check in.

Happy Customers

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

We loved it! You are doing an amazing job, starting from the supplies that always arrive on time, the carefully planned week, and then the packed 3-hour sessions during which we feel our son is getting 1 on 1 ‘in-person’ education! Best investment this year for our family!

The teachers are awesome and can really hold my 6 year old's attention for 3 hours online, which is amazing. They are so patient and the experiments are really cool and unique. I am so impressed and grateful for their efforts!

Wonderful programming. Very patient and entertaining instructors who make learning FUN and scientific concepts very accessible — even for the youngest of aspiring scientists!

How many children are in each virtual camp?

Our Virtual Summer Camps are capped at 20 students to ensure that they get the same small-group experience and individualized attention that they would at an in-person camp. We also want them to have the full summer camp experience- including getting to know their fellow campers and their Mad Scientist!


Do I have to provide any materials for virtual camp?

Your registration includes all the supplies needed for at-home activities! They can be picked up the weekend before camp or delivered right to you for a small fee.


Do I need to be present for the entire virtual camp session?

Nope! We know parents are busy, so our content is designed for the campers to work independently, just like at our in-person camps. Projects are age-appropriate in terms of physical skills required, and our Mad Scientist is there to help with the science. We certainly welcome any parents who would like to join and watch their child participate!


Is virtual camp just 3 hours of watching a Mad Scientist on screen?

Nope! Our top priority is to make sure we re-create the experience of our in-person camps. Just as we wouldn't want 3 straight hours of instruction, we wouldn't want that virtually either. We break up our session with instruction time, interaction and discussion, and lots of time for guided, independent work on physical, at-home projects.


Can I register for In-Person Camps and switch later?

Yes! We allow anyone to switch from an in-person camp to a virtual camp at any point in the summer, and will fully refund the difference in price.


Has Mad Science done virtual programming before?

Yes! Mad Science conducted over 50 Virtual Birthday Parties this April and May, as well as dozens of virtual assemblies and hands-on workshops. We even ran five Virtual After School Programs, where over 100 kids were able to experience 8 sessions of hands-on, interactive classes with an engaging Mad Scientist and a group of their peers.
