Mad Science uses interactive activities to teach kids entering grades K-5 both practical and amazing science lessons. The dynamic Mad Scientists lead age-appropriate activities that are so fun and engaging that campers almost don't realize they are gaining a clear understanding of science and how it affects the world around them. Each week focuses on a different theme, allowing campers to fully explore and understand the scientific principles behind them.
After lunch, Mad Science campers join the other camp groups for athletic activities that include tennis, swimming, and team-building exercises. These sports and games are intended to develop not only physical skills, but also interpersonal skills, as we emphasize sportsmanship and teamwork.
For campers who don't want to participate in the afternoon portion of the program, we also offer a half-day option that includes just the Mad Science activities.
Explore the natural world and its adaptations. Make casts of animal tracks and build a bird feeder to mix seed blends to attract specific bird species. Study the feeding habits of owls as we dissect their lunch's remains while learning all about the world around us.

Using soft balls, campers enjoy this classic test of reflexes and quickness. We also have a court for the popular gaga variant that is played a little closer to the ground.
