Holiday Camps & Home Labs

We are always busy in the Mad Lab creating exciting holiday camp material. Our holiday camps educate and entertain. Hands-on activities combined with super cool scientific demonstrations make our holiday camps days fun for everyone.
Due to the latest government guidelines we are able to offer some holiday camps this summer.

Happy Customers

Here's what parents have to say about our camps!

Both my girls (aged 9 & 11) have loved 'virtual mad science- making science fun, wholly accessible, achievable and exciting. We've made rain, explosions and lots of colourful chemistry; the girls have had lots of fun and learnt loads without realising! Thank you !


Winchester, Hampshire

My 5 year old girl loves this lesson and comes out of it buzzing! To learn through having fun with instant visual results is amazing!!


Shaftesbury, Dorset

"My son had found science boring at school so I enrolled him in the Mad Science after school Club to see if it could ignite his interest in science. I'm pleased to say he is thoroughly enjoying it and is keen to try and recreate the experiments at home. Mission accomplished!"


Fordingbridge, Hampshire


Can I sign my child up for more than one camp?

Yes, in fact, we encourage it. Each program is completely different, so your child can enjoy them all without repeating activities!


Who are the Mad Science camp instructors?

Mad Science instructors tend to be college students pursing an education or science degree, former/retired teachers, or teachers on summer break. All of our instructors have experience working with large groups of elementary-aged children and have undergone an extensive background check.


What is the child to instructor ratio?

The child to instructor ratio varies depending on enrollment age. 8-10 children per instructor. Due to COVID-19 we are restricting attendance at our camps this summer. Maximum 20 children.


Can I pay with childcare vouchers?

Unfortunately we are not set up to accept childcare vouchers


What safety precautions are you taking due to COVID-19?

Increased hand washing. We will temperature check Campers on arrival with no access if above 38c. Parents to self certify that no symptoms in the household for the last 14 days. Increased cleaning of venues and kits. Social distancing during drop off and pick up with no parents allowed past registration table or in the venue.


What if my child develops COVID-19 symptoms?

If your child develops symptoms BEFORE attending Camp, we kindly ask that you stay home and follow self isolation guidelines. Should your child develop symptoms following being at CAMP, please seek a COVID19 test and provide the details of the results to Mad Science as soon as available so we can advise other parents. Please do not return to camp.


What does my child need to bring?

We want to minimise items brought from the home at our venues. We therefore ask that a single lunchbox, and water bottle be packed per child, and 1 coat (if required). Please ensure to label each item. Avoid any unnecessary items. Asthma pumps will need to be labelled handed to the instructor at registration. Please apply sunscreen before arrival.


Can I book individual days?

Due to the changes in how we will need to operate this year's Camps. We will only be taking Full Course Bookings. This is to reduce the chance of mixing with multiple people throughout the week and provide a safer environment for our attendees. Your children will be in the same social bubble as their group for the duration of the Camp week.
