The Wacky Science Show - Camps

This science summer camp show helps campers learn the Scientific Method while having fun at the same time!

Age Range
K-8

More than twelve campers will participate up front on stage, putting science in their hands!  In this summer camp show with a focus on science, the wacky and zany presenter, Dr. Science, helps campers learn about the scientific method in a simple, fun, and engaging way with lots of comedy and magic tricks. The Wacky Science Show is the only summer camp program that has been honored with the Touch-Tech Award from Dow Jones Chemical as an excellent example of how to integrate hands-on science in education!

Your campers will crack-up at the craziness, but your staff and counselors will really enjoy the lessons, including: Scientific Method, Physical Sciences, Math, Life Sciences, Air Pressure, Acids/Bases, Levers/Machines, Dinosaurs, States of Matter, Safety in the Lab, Bernoulli, Reactions between Chemicals, and more. Additionally, older campers in middle school will learn:  Centripal/Centrifugal forces, kinetic energy, potential energy, inertia, connections in technology, and using chemicals in observations.

The Wacky Science Show is Crazy! Zany! And it’s Packed with Learning too!  Not only has The Wacky Science Show been ranked nationally for hands-on science education, it’s also one of the best ways to help your campers learn the scientific method. Your youth will engage in kooky hands-on experiments and nutty tricks while learning lessons hands-on.  They will find out which everyday household things can be used in some cool science stunts while learning all about the Scientific Method at the same time.

The Wacky Science Show is one of the best science summer camp shows your elementary and middle school aged campers will ever experience!

  • Just to let you know, our Saturday performance of the Wacky Science Show with Greg was really great. The kids loved it. All went very well. The show was attended by about 45 kids at our public library. Greg was able to keep the show on track even though some of the kids were preschoolers. Hats off to him for his great job. We would definitely work with Safari Greg again and with Academic Entertainment as well.
