What is a Jr. Mad Science Camp?
Gallons of green glowing liquids; strange objects flying through the air; messages written in secret code; mystery substances that change from solid to liquid in seconds. Is this a fictional account of a visit to another planet? No . . . it's a Jr. Mad Science summer camp!
Yes, Mad Science, the world's leading provider of fun science programs is now offering half-day summer science camps for kids ages 4 & 5. Kids can enjoy week-long science camps, sparking their imaginative learning while school is out! Your child will become a junior scientist for the week, having the opportunity to experience a variety of unique activities.
Since Mad Science came to the Valley over seven years ago, we have become a staple at dozens of elementary schools, recreation centers, parties, and community events throughout the area. We are the THREE TIME recipient of the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce Award for "The Company That Best Exemplifies the Spirit of Las Vegas," and were awarded the Innovative Business of the Year Award for 2007!
Our camps are truly unique experiences and encompass all of the fun and excitement you have come to expect from Mad Science, including our phenomenal take-homes! Children will design, create, build and assemble a variety of interesting projects and will take at least one project home every day.
My child has already taken Mad Science at their school or rec. center... Is Summer Camp different?
YES! Mad Science Summer Camps provide completely different programming than our After School and Rec. Center classes. They are unique experiences, specially designed for a full week of Hands On Fun!
