When I was a young boy, I spent a great deal of time in our family's basement trying to be the "Evil Mad Scientist". I worked for countless hours learning to use the microscope I had received as a gift, or mixing some dubious chemicals which accompanied a Gilbert chemistry set. It was certainly a time of fun and adventure acting like a scientist or surgeon (sorry frogs!).
Yes, science was my favorite subject -- but, like today, science in school was rather limited to reading about science and not "doing" science. Even though I was usually by myself, I had as much fun as when I played soccer or baseball with my buddies. There was no Internet, no video games or cell phones to keep us distracted. Little did I know at the time, I was laying the groundwork for what would lead to my career. You see, there were no science camps either in those days.
To me, Club Scientific is all about seeing young people develop an interest in science and technology. The work we do has the possibility to transform lives by introducing children to the mysteries of science through hands-on interactive experiments and giving them a gift that will last a lifetime. This is the 14th year that my wife, Sue, and I have run Club Scientific. We are blessed to have a team of professionals who implement our amazing program and serve our children and families.
We promise our families that we will be 100% responsive to their needs. We always strive to exceed your expectations, and we thank you for trusting us with your children.

Getting ready for camp should be an exciting process for your entire family. Many families attend multiple camps throughout the summer. For your convenience we have posted our Welcome Packet in the form of a parent newsletter on-line in PDF format. This document covers everything from Club Scientific policies to camp dates and security issues.

The Welcome Packet mentions an 'Administration of Medicine Form'. If your child requires any medications during the time he/she is at the camp, please download this form and print it, fill in the required information, and bring it with the child on the first day of camp.

After your child returns home from Summer Ccamp [and as a favor to Club Scientific], we would ask that you fill out the online Camp Evaluation Form. Your input will greatly help us improve the camps and course offerings. We can't wait to hear from you!
