Mad Science Summer Camps


Our Science Summer Camps allow primary school children the chance to explore a whole world of Science discovery in a fun and inclusive environment. Our Camps foster a creative, enquiry based approach which allows the children to fully immerse themselves in the different topics and themes.

All our Camps are hosted by our highly trained Mad Scientists, who are accomplished Science Communicators, and go above and beyond to ensure your little camper leaves with a new wealth of Science skills and knowledge, and more importantly a massive smile. Don’t just take our word for it.

No two days at camp are the same, with daily themes and topics to explore there’s plenty to keep them engaged for the whole summer. Check out our activity pages to learn more about some of the content on offer. NEW for 2021 We’ve added some exciting new themes, added even more WOW moments, and revamped some of our favourites.


Checkout our FAQ page for more information on what to expect and how a day at Camp will typically run.

My 7 year old attended your holiday club today and had an amazing time. Thank you. He hasn’t stopped talking about it and has spent the evening telling me he HAS to come again. I was very happy with organisation and communication, both prior to booking and today for dropping off and picking up. Thank you!

My 11 year old had a great time at the Newport camp summer 2016. Would recommend this to any parent, its well worth the money and if they go with some school friends they have an even better time. Book early for the discounts and expect tired children when they come home!

My five-year old son really enjoyed the three days he attended and even rated it better than his football holiday days – which he loves! He was particularly pleased with the experiments he brought home with him! And it was good that they werent cooped up in a classroom. We would sign up for another educational fun camp like this. Thanks
