Don't miss out on our Award Winning Summer Camps! Register Today!
Below you will find the descriptions to all 6 camps we are offering this year. We are very excited to announce that Mad Science® has partnered with Crayola® to provide an Art Camp, The World of Design, where we will be combining art with real-world problem solving activities to spark that creative process that we believe all children possess.
Mad Science® Summer Camps have children engaged in scientific explorations that are so much fun that they'll forget that they are learning!
We are proud to be offering outstanding science programming for children in Calgary for 23 years. As part of the Mad Science® Group we have been providing active, engaging and exciting science programming that has been tested, developed and proven in over 180 international locations.
New camps are created each year and online registration begins at the end of January.

Campers will dive into the world of Robotics while building and keeping their own Solar Hydraulic Robot that converts into 12 different modes; Excavator, Forklift, Rover, Elephant, Pterosaurus, Scorpion and 6 more!!!! This super cool robot harmonizes Solar and Hydraulic Power – it is powered by sunlight and has a hydraulic transmission. Activities during the day will also include coding and programming, learning about energy and alternative power sources, and building structures and the importance of gravity. Campers will receive daily Mad Science Take Home Projects, a Mad Science Camp T-Shirt and a 12-in-1 Robot. This camp will fill fast so register today!

EUREKA! - The Inventor's Camp
Creative Contraption Warning!!! In our Eureka Camp campers will go on an incredible scientific journey through the Ages from Leonardo da Vinci to Outer Space. From Medieval Times to Science Fiction, this fun camp covers a lot of ground and scientific concepts. Each day, with instruction and guidance from our Mad Scientist’s, campers will be given a series of challenges which must be overcome using basic materials, simple machines, tips from world famous inventors and the most important thing of all... their minds. With a little bit of ingenuity they'll construct catapults and forts and then lay siege, fabricate innovative flying contraptions, design their own gizmo prototypes, and will even assemble a working Light Saber to take home. This is one exciting week filled with team building, cooperation, problem solving, team-work and of course loads of fun, educational, hands-on experiments, activities and daily take-home projects. Campers will also receive a Mad Science T-Shirt. Did we mention that this camp is SUPER FUN?!?!

Crayola® Imagine Arts Academy – World of Design
Campers will journey to the edges of their imagination and beyond! Learn about Mars, the rainforest, the ocean, and futuristic cities, while engaging in the creative design process to solve real-world problems. Each day focuses on a specific field of design, and our Jr. Architects, Illustrators and Graphic Designers develop their ideas from concept, to sketch, to finished product. Children will bring their concepts to life by experimenting with different mediums and techniques like sculpting, storyboarding, mixed media and collage. Combining art, design, fun active games and inspiring themes from around the world, this camp is designed to inspire!

Register in Brixology with Lego® Bricks afternoon camp for a full day STEAM camp. Children registered in both camps will remain under Mad Science supervision during the lunch break.
Brixology with Lego® Bricks
The Mad Science Brixology Camp sets the foundation for our next generation of makers! Children learn about different types of engineering and then team up to construct a different engineering-themed project using LEGO® bricks. Campers will learn about aerospace engineering while assembling a space station and explore nautical and mechanical engineering as they build and test various boats and vehicles. That's not all - from carnival rides to drawing machines, mechanical animals to truss bridges, your future engineer will build upon their creativity to solve real-world design challenges, while developing their problem-solving and team-building skills. Let the tinkering begin! Campers receive daily Mad Science take home projects such as Astro-Lander, Viking Ship, Wave Rider, Sky Tower, Truss Bridge and a Mad Science T-Shirt.
Monday – Friday. 1PM – 4PM. Ages 5 – 8. 5 Day Camp $175 plus gst. 4 Day Camp (July 2 – 5) $155 plus gst.
Register in our Crayola® Imagine Art Academy morning camp for a full day STEAM camp. Children registered in both camps will remain under Mad Science supervision during the lunch break.
Jr. Mad Adventurers
This morning camp is perfect for the budding Jr. Scientist. Each day has a different theme such as Little Lab Day, Magnificent Magnets, Funky Flyers, Science of Simple Machines and Dig those Dinosaurs. Campers will explore each theme with fun, hands-on, individual and group activities and build things to keep at the end of each day. Watch and make volcanoes erupt, make a lab coat design, explore the invisible forces of magnets & their effects on different objects, learn the fundamentals about flight such as drag, gravity, lift, and thrust, learn about motors, energy and the center of gravity, and learn all about Dinosaurs and get hands-on with a Dino-Dig. Sign up for this camp and take an adventure with Mad Science through the world of science!
