The Science of Fun Summer Camps 2023

What to bring to camp

Who we are:

The Science of Fun is a highly engaging, STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) camp and education company in downtown Decatur, Georgia. We encourage curiosity, experimentation, risk-taking, and a growth mindset in our elementary-age campers. Our campers receive hearty outdoor play, solid interpersonal coaching, and engaging hands-on STEM activities such as slime, rockets, and roller coasters. We believe in the inherent value of young children and truly enjoy their company; we strike just the right balance between structure and fun. The Science of Fun is owned by Kris Webb, a former City Schools of Decatur teacher and co-founder of the non-profit Sudbury School of Atlanta. Ms. Webb graduated from Agnes Scott College and holds dual Master's Degrees in Science Education and in Educational Leadership. 

What we do:

We have four summer themes with different and distinct activities each summer. The activities are new each year and many families return year after year. Activities include STEM topics: matter investigations, chemical reactions, physics explorations, engineering challenges, STEAM (STEM + Art) and Tinker Labs. Many projects are taken home by campers. All camps are ideal for ages 5-9 whether campers have prior STEM knowledge or not. Advanced learners will also be mentally engaged through differentiated small group discussions and open-ended activities. Descriptions of each summer camp theme are located below.

Locations & ages: We have two Decatur summer camp locations, both ages 5-9. Ages 10 & 11 Jr CIT link and ages 12 + CIT link are encouraged to apply to our Counselor in Training programs.
