Mad World of Science
Remember your science teacher showing you how hydrogen explodes with a squeaky pop? Or blue litmus paper turning red when dipped in acid? You bet, because you were a kid and it was fascinating to watch.
Your kids will always remember their Mad World of Science camp too, because we make them exciting and hands-on (and ultra-safe, of course). It’s loads of fun, and there’s a different theme every day. We’ll show them scientific stuff in the lab and how it affects the world around them – and stuff they do and see every day. Encourage them to ask. And really s-t-r-e-t-c-h their imagination.

Some stuff you’ll need to know before booking:
These details apply to all camps and both of our campuses.
Activities kick off at 9 am, but we have free drop off from 8.30 am where children can join in a free choice activity.
We have a full time nurse on site for every camp week to manage health checks every morning and administer medication/first aid if it’s needed. All camp staff have up-to-date first aid training.
Lunch and snacks are included in the cost of your camp. If your kid is a vegetarian or doesn’t/can’t eat beef, pork, seafood, dairy or eggs, that’s cool. Just tell us beforehand in your child’s details online… or most other diet needs come to that. If your kid has a nut allergy, don’t worry, we don’t go near there either Camp Asia has a no nut policy.
We offer a highly convenient, safe, secure and sociable bus service to and from camp, calling at a stop near you. Click here for all the info.
