Spring Break Camps
314-991-8000

Mad Science of St. Louis offers two camps during Spring Break: Rocketry Camp and Secret Agent Lab Camp for kids in grades kindergarten though 5. Hurry to sign up as these full-day camps fill fast!

At Mad Science Rocketry Camp, this action-packed week will focus solely on rockets and the physics of rocket flight. After learning the model rocket safety code, campers will build different types of rockets and participate in rocket launches throughout the week. Children will be divided into three groups: altitude trackers, launch preparers, and rocket launchers and will get the opportunity to try different roles. This camp is recommended for children in grades 2-5, however, children entering kindergarten and first grade will enjoy it as well with a little help from fellow campers or instructors.

Mad Science Rocketry Camp is held March 26-30, 2018, at The Lodge in Des Peres (located at 270 and Manchester) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Secret Agent Lab Camp is perfect for any kid who has ever dreamed of being a secret agent! Campers will start with the basics: from decoding messages and metal detectors to night vision, campers have the opportunity to check out spy tech equipment and take home lots of gagets like spy glasses! They'll step into the shoes of a detective as they uncover the science involved in evidence-gathering and analysis, then they'll figure out the science of forensics in a hands-on look at crime scenes. Kids become super spies and learn clever ways of performing tasks as they take a hands-on investigation of the science that spies use!

Secret Agent Lab Camp is held March 19-23, 2018 at the Crestwood Community Center from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
