All About Our Camps!
Designed for kids ages 3-12
Combination of science discovery, outdoor games, and physical activity
New topics and activities every day
Full-day and half-day options available
Well-trained and dynamic instructors
At your local YMCA
We partner with your local YMCA to bring Mad Science and Imagine Arts Academy camps to locations across the Niagara Region. Half the day is spent in our hands-on science or arts programming, and the remainder is filled with YMCA day camp activities. This allows us to provide the bet of both worlds - high quality STEAM based programming, and the camp infrastructure of the YMCA including busing, extended care, and swimming (at most locations) for only $210 per full week of full day camp.
The YMCA Daycamp office can be contacted at 905-934-9755 x280.

Here's what parents have to say about our camps!
Both of our boys did Mad Science summer camps when they were younger, and loved the experience! It was a very fun and interactive experience for them. And counselor Beth Morrell is the best!!!
My son attended the Earth, Space & Beyond Mad Science Camp last summer and absolutely loved it! The hours were convenient for our family, and the location was close by for us. We're sending him again to a Mad Science camp this upcoming summer. These are well run camps, in our experience, and I recommend them for people looking for a fun, science-based camp experience.

My son participated in a true "camp" with horses, swimming, fishing and hiking and he was MORE excited about this camp than anything else he's done all summer. Great job on your end!
