We’re Making Science Fun!
Radical Science Camp is a fun, interactive voyage into the world of science! There’s a little bit of everything in our camps! From bubbling potions, flash point, cotton candy science and indoor cannons to the human body, worms, rocket launches, the science of crime and space! For the “Green Thumb’ conservationist in your family, explore oceans, oil spills, composting, rocks & minerals and of course… animals! Maybe even a visit or two from Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo! Our camp counselors thrive on making science fun … because if it’s not fun, you’re not doing it right!”
