F.A.Q.

The main objective is fun exciting activities for the children. It is not like a science lesson at school, it’s all about engaging children, with a love of science through hands on activities, exciting demonstrations and experiments, team games and fun quizzes. We start off by introducing the topic, we do fun demonstrations and experiments followed by hands on activities where the children will make something to take home with them. We also provide a parent hand out which describes exactly what has been covered in each session – with further areas for ideas to explore at home!

Camps are open to children aged 5 years to 12 years old.

9am – 3:30pm and extended hours can be booked by telephone request 8.30am-4.00pm.

Every school Holidays – there are Six Holiday Camp Seasons 

  1. February Half Term Holiday Camps – Early Bird Discount Expires 31 January
  2. April Easter Holiday Camp – Early Bird Discount Expires 06 March
  3.  May-June Half Term Holiday Camp  – Early Bird Discount Expires 6 May
  4. July-August Summer Holiday Camps – Early Bird Discount Expires 12 June
  5. October Half Term Camp  – Early Bird Discount Expires 09 October
  6. December Christmas Holiday Camps  – Early Bird Discount Expires 27 November

The Camp is designed to be a week long programme – but yes you can book single days, availability permitting, by telephone.

No – our camp is all about working together on science projects as a Team! It is not like a school or a Tuiton Club. We always run our camps with a tried-and-tested ‘Mixed Age Dynamic’ which works really well because it gives extra responsibility to the older children and helps stretch the younger children. Although our camps are open to kids aged 5-12 the majority of children tend to be aged 5 and 10.

Yes – but only at registered venues – please see this page for an up to date venue list and childcare voucher providers we are registered with and to obtain your code.
To pay with childcare vouchers: just enrol normally using the online form (and choose ‘BACS’ at checkout) or directly by telephone. This will give you the amount you need to transfer from your childcare voucher account and a payment reference so we can track it. Use the code provided next to your employers chosen Provider to find us.

We always operate on a 1- 10 Professor to Child ratio. There is always a minimum of 2 Professors on site at all times. We have one main presenter and an assistant who is there especially to look after the younger children. During term time most of our presenters run after school science clubs so are well used to working with children of that age.

20-25 – Venue Classroom dependent. 

All our specially trained MNS Professors have experience teaching children in after-school clubs and camps. All have enhanced DBS checks.

Yes – we try to be outside as much as possible – esp. when the weather is beautiful.

Click Here  and select Holiday Camp, as you are entering child details you will need to register an account to keep your details secure.

Ensuring every Child’s safety and security is our top priority. All our staff have passed an enhanced police check by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). We risk-assess every experiment and activity, and fully train the instructors who deliver the sessions. We also run a strict signing-in/out policy so that only persons nominated by you are permitted to collect your child. 

No. but we do provide mineral water free of charge to keep them hydrated during the day. Children need to bring their own packed lunch, mid-session snack and drinks bottle. We have a no sharing food policy. We respectfully ask for nut products (such as peanut butter, Nutella and bags of nuts) not to be placed in pack lunches.

All equipment will be provided. Campers should wear appropriate clothing for indoor and outdoor activities.

Each week has a mix of fun and hands on science across Chemistry, Biology and Physics –Science Forces, Science Explorer, Science Factory and Science Academy etc, these are just names we give to our programme weeks.

No. this is a common concern from parents but from our experience you have nothing to worry about. we always have an assistant who is there to look after the younger children and most children come back to our camps year after year. You can book for a single day by request.

Yes – and this can even be combined with the early booking discount – we reward parents who book well in advance and multiple weeks, children and siblings.

Yes – we are happy to accept overseas pupils as long as they have a good understanding of English.
