Here's what parents have to say about our 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!
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!+
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. For in-person camp we follow a 10:1 counselor to camper. Virtual camps depend on topic.+
Should I still sign up for camps given the uncertainty around COVID19-related restrictions?
Go for it! We will provide a refund or 110% credit for any camp we have to cancel, as well as the option to transfer to a virtual camp (with the remaining balance refunded). If in-person camp runs but you choose not to attend, you will still receive the 110% credit as an option. The credit will be usable until December 31, 2022!+
