"The kids became more adaptable to new environments after a great experience at Camp INNOVATION... it was their first camp away from their own preschool and they were so comfortable at the Science Center, I think it eased the next few camps we did this summer."
"The kids both brought up things they learned, my youngest son talked about dissecting a scorpion and my older son talked about energy conservation and what they built in class. The camp had a positive impact on them."
"He keeps bringing up facts he learned there out of the blue that are relevant to what we are doing! Cool!"
"She loved learning about astronomy inside the science center–new interest!"
"He wants to be a neuroscientist after doing the BNI camp"
"Thank you for an amazing experience! Lindsay was challenged daily and absolutely loved gaining deeper insight into research and science in general. Arizona Science Center has the most knowledgeable staff I have ever encountered during summer camps. We are definitely returning next year!"
"The location is wonderful, it is a very nice feature to be able to visit the Science Center. The topics are really interesting and unique - can't find this anywhere else."
"Please continue these one-day camps on holidays. Its perfect for curious children with working parents."
"My children were excited to share what they learned and what they made. They had fun with the other students. They asked to go to the next camp."
"My daughter rated the camp a 10 out of 10. This is the second camp she has attended at the ASC and it won't be our last. I love the option of one-day camps on holidays and the variety of subjects covered at the camps."
"Even my 7-year-old, who was tentative about going without knowing anyone, had a great time."
