Unleash your child’s inner scientist with a Mad Science Summer Camp!

Channel your child’s creativity, get their mind and body moving, and spark their imagination with our engaging, innovative, and FUN day camps that are guaranteed to prevent the “summer slide”. Your child doesn’t just “go” to camp, they EXPERIENCE IT! We offer them the opportunity to “DO” science through a daily combination of in-class discovery and hands-on exploration, interactive learning games and physical activities, group problem-solving, and uniquely designed take home projects that are built every day. They will launch rockets, program robots, crack codes & solve mysteries, construct catapults, invent wacky contraptions, and even make slime that is magnetic! From robotics & coding to chemistry & engineering, our enriching camps are unlike any other and perfect for children ages 6-12 years old.

STEAM Enrichment Camps are offered in over 10 locations throughout Southern Maine and New Hampshire, including: Dover and Durham.
