Mad Science Camps
Love to experiment? Dream of potion making and rockets?
We’ve got the break for you! NEW for 2024 our Mad Science Camp combines the very best of PGL Multi-Activity at three of our most popular Kids’ Camp centres with crazy science workshops provided by our partner Fun Science.
Discover static electricity and circuits, perfect the recipe for slime and build & code your very own Bristle Bot to keep – plus so much more! Check out our sample week itinerary below to get a flavour of our action-packed programme.
Choose from Marchants Hill, Liddington or Osmington Bay for your Mad Science Camp.
Can I do other activities as well?
Yes, as well as the Mad Science programme you’ll enjoy a half day of activities from the residential centre's brilliant multi-activity programme every day and different evening entertainment each night.
Is previous experience required?
No, you don’t need any previous scientific experience to take part in our Mad Science Camp. Just a big imagination!
Do I need any specialist equipment?
You don’t need to bring anything special; we will send you a kit list before you travel and apart from that we will provide everything you need for your Mad Science Camp.
Ps - to create the best camp experience for kids attending occasionally we will combine adjacent age groups on selected activity sessions. This does not include rooming or pastoral groups.
