Dynamic Discoveries

This Camp is guaranteed to spark the imagination of your junior scientist! An unforgettable week of discovery and exploration will take campers on an amazing journey. Children will experiment with magnets, rainbows, musical vibrations, the five senses, and even rocketry! Hands-on fun happens every day as each camper creates their own model ear, jingle bracelet, thaumatrope, mini brain, Professor Beakerdude, Skyblazer Rocket, and much more! Mad Science camp fosters your child’s curiosity in an age-appropriate and engaging environment that is fun, interactive and exciting.


Camp Day Themes Include: Sticky Stuff, Animals, Light & Sound, My Body, Space (Indoor & Outdoor Activities!)


Sticky Stuff

Get stuck into science! Discover the invisible world of magnetic fields, and move objects around without touching them. We challenge campers to figure out how Velcro works, and use their new-found knowledge to identify and experiment with a variety of adhesive materials. Each child will assemble their Professor Beakerdude kit – a set of reusable adhesives and a beaker to continue their explorations at home.



Interactive and hands-on activities will assist campers learn all about animals! We’ll discover different sounds animals make, different types of coverings animals have for their bodies, and how animals change from babies to adults. We’ll examine how bird’s beaks act as tools to help them eat particular foods, and make a Rockin' Robin! Campers will examine their own taste buds, and compare each of our five senses to an animal with exceptional skills.


My Body

Join us as we journey into the depths of our skeletal, digestive, circulatory and respiratory systems and discover the amazing way our brains coordinate all that we do!  Investigate your senses, test your eyes and nose and try to communicate using Braille.  Experimenting with ingredients will illuminate the reasons for bubbles in bread, and a series of interactive activities will show how we can stay germ-free.  Each student will make a meal planner to help them continue making healthy choices at home.



Campers create impact craters and observe model meteors falling through a model atmosphere. After exploring the effects of lenses and mirrors on light rays, children make a model comet to take home! Each camper will also build their very own model rockets while exploring the science of rocketry.  For our grand finale, the children will witness a thrilling model rocket launch, and learn the meticulous preparations necessary to send up a rocket!


Light & Sound

Interactive and hands-on activities will demonstrate how light helps us see, how mirrors reflect light, how shadows form, and that white light is made from all the colours of the rainbow! Music and all sorts of merry sounds engage children in sound experiments showing the properties and transmission of sound waves. Campers will build a Mini Ear to take home and impress their friends and family!
