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!

Working with thousands of children, for almost a decade, I can say these programs are revolutionizing education. Thank you SO much for all of the positive comments. We hope to be more than a fad and continue to arm the future adults of our world with the ability to analyze each action and produce positive results. Science is more than a subject in school… it is a systematic and logical method of solving problems. I can’t thank you all enough for the support and I look forward to positive ripple effects for generations to come!

"Science for Fun" - what better way to teach young minds about science and the world around them! My niece and nephew, who love the world of science, came to visit us this summer, and it was a no-brainer to sign them up for a week of science fun. They absolutely loved it! and are looking forward to their next visit. Thank you Science Fun for Everyone for making learning about Science fun and exciting...for everyone!

Science Is Fun for Everyone is a program that should be included in every school's curriculum. The children of my nephew and niece have participated in the classroom and begged to go to the camps. What a fun and exciting way to introduce young minds to science. These children are so engaged in the classroom. With the experiments and information they are provided, I'm sure many kids will be encouraged to continue with their interest in science. This program is a fantastic example of how to stimulate young minds

It I'd my regret that Science Fun for Everyone isn't available in South Florida. My niece and nephews children have participated in this program several times and rave about it. What a tremendous opportunity to make science fun for youngsters and to encourage their inquisitiveness. We need more of these programs. However, what we really need are more visionaries like the couple who operate this outstanding educational program.

I can tell you what this company is doing, is changing lives in such a good way. Children are our future, and not in the cliche way of saying it. We make our future better by helping people become more educated in general. Science fun for everyone is making this happen through education. We have found that we can change elevate society by educating our youth. Education has a "trickle up" effect, while business development and tax-pilot programs have the "trickle down" effect. This company is a perfect example of how society can come together and create the change needed for our future.

My daughter has attended a week long 1/2 day camp as well as a birthday party. She was excited about the activities and talked about science every day when coming home. I attended the party with her and was very please with the organization, activities and attention provided by the staff. The kids all had a great time and I loved that they were able to experience science in a positive way that they can carry forward. We will definitely be attending camps in the future!

My child had Science Fun come to their school. He had such an amazing experience I wanted to see if there was more we could do. We discovered they held camps throughout the year. This was the best camp my son has ever attended. The staff was extremely helpful and approachable. They built such awesome working relationships with the kids. I would highly recommend these camps to any parents.

Science Fun for Everyone exceeded my expectations. My niece went there for trackout camp & had a fantastic time. She learned all aspects of science. She held a snake & learned about centipedes. The things she learned are endless. Topping the end of camp off with a soda explosion. I would highly recommend Science Fun for Everyone

Science Fun for Everyone came to my school. It was this hit of the year, the largest turn out ever! I signed my 2 girls up for camp this summer. I don't know where to start. Amazing, fun, exciting, best day ever, best day ever, best day every, best day ever and BEST DAY EVER the entire week. My 8 year old said " I don't know how it can get any better, but it just does! They were sad the week ended. They turned our house into a science station, continuing to experiment with everything they could get their hands on. The knowledge they gained will stay with them forever. Not only was it an academically excellent program, the social environment, leadership examples and confidence gained were priceless. I get emotional just thinking about the impact this camp had on my girls and our family. We will definitely be back again! I just love them.
