I had an opportunity to tour the Science Fun For Everyone camp this summer as I was interested in enrolling my son. What a fantastic experience. The camp is so well organized. Each child gets their own bag with their name on it and there is so much for them to do and learn. I was fascinated by all the different types of animal life they have there. I was very impressed and I know my son is going to get so much from this experience.

The experience was awesome!!! My daughter is blind and she was able to get hands on experience with the reptiles, tarantula and hedge hog. They made sure she was included in all the experiments and explained them in a way that she could understand. When they say fun for everyone that is exactly what they mean. The staff was very helpful and my daughter had a wonderful experience.

Best camp ever! From the first step in through the door, my 6-year-old son was engaged! By the scientist who greeted him, by the gecko, by the giant spider, by the air hockey table, by the other kids building things, by the fish tank, by the dark room, by the hermit crabs. Favorite activities: building his listening device and the soda bottle/ Mentos explosion. He never wanted to leave! And, he can't wait to return!

My son is in a year round school. It is a constant challenge to find new track out programs that will keep him engaged while having fun. Science Fun is the only camp my son asks for! We absolutely love it. The staff is amazing.

The Florida Public School System has a lengthy 10 week summer vacation, during this time children lose ground and on average fall one month behind. Over time, this cumulative loss has taken a toll on my children, so finding a summer program to mitigate this learning loss was imperative. It's quite a tremendous task to find a program where children have a wonderful time while engaging in educational material. I am forever grateful to the Science Fun For Everyone program because each summer my children come home with more self-confidence, independence and knowledge. I don't know how you are able to keep creating these fun, exciting and educational summer camps but we will see you all again this summer!
