Mad World of Science
If you ask any adult about their most memorable lessons up to and including Grade 5, most will recount that the science lab made the most impact, thanks to the sheer fascination and drama aroused by the experiments.
Today’s children are no different: hungry to find out how things work and affect the world around them, and to enjoy the process. Your child will always remember their Mad World of Science camp because it will be exciting and hands-on … and 100% safe, under expert supervision. A different theme is covered every day, stretching knowledge, understanding, imagination and curiosity, with unbridled contributions and questions welcomed.
