With the days finally getting warmer I can't help but think of summer on the horizon! With summer comes so many fun things....lightning bugs, baseball games, pool days, camping out, vacations, and SO much more. As a parent, one of the thoughts in the forefront of my mind is keeping my kiddos busy and entertained those summer months while school is out. A great option for many parents is summer camp! Whether you're interested in providing an outlet for your kiddo's energy, a way to meet new friends and be social, a way for them to hone in on a skill or interest, or simply a few hours a day to get some errands accomplished without kids in tow...Winston Salem has many options for summer camps in varying interest categories! Here are a few of my top picks for our area!
Mad Science of Central Carolina
Messages written in secret code? Incredible rockets that soar through the air? Bubbling potions and lasers? It's not the plot of the latest Hollywood sci-fi movie-it's all a part of a Mad Science summer camp adventure! With many camps to choose from in exciting themes such as forensics and robotics, Mad Science is on a mission to inspire the next generation of scientists with unique, interactive and hands on summer camps that spark imaginative learning!
Mad science camps offer a unique opportunity for children ages 4-12 to explore the wonders of science through group activities, active games and hand on projects like robot building, catapult construction and gooey slime creations! They'll even be inspired by the ideas of famous scientists and use their imaginations to create their own amazing inventions!
*Full and half day options available at various location across the triad!*
