How much are your camps and clubs?
The price varies depending on whether the camp is a full day, half day, week long or daily option. We also work with various organizations and schools who set their own price for each camp or club. The registration link will take you to a page with information about pricing.

Will my child be outside?
Our camps and clubs are held primarily indoors. Sometimes we take short breaks or do an experiment outdoors but never for an extended period of time.

Do you supply snacks?
Mr. Bond’s Science Guys do not supply snacks. We allow for water breaks and snacks breaks if parents wish to send snacks and drinks with their children. Please NO NUTS to avoid any issues with allergies.

Please contact us with details about your child and we will do our best to support your child. If your child is not able to fully participate in our program, unfortunately, we will need to send your child home.

Who are the Science Guys?
The Science Guys hire are “edutainers” who love children and science! Our club and camp instructors are trained for the experiments they will be conducting, as well as educated and experienced on how to handle the materials safely. Mr Bond’s Science Guys conducts background checks on all instructors prior to being assigned to our programs.

Where are your camps and clubs held?
You can find a Mr. Bond Science Camp somewhere in Middle TN every summer and usually spring, fall and winter too. Science Clubs are held throughout the school year usually after or during school hours and occasionally on the weekends. You can find a list of all camps here, and a list of clubs here.

If Mr. Bond’s Science Guys is holding the club or camp and operating registration we will give a complete refund when any cancellation for a club or camp is requested a minimum of one week prior to the start time of the club.

What should my child wear to camp or club?
Play clothes or whatever they wear to school regularly with close-toed shoes. Although we spend very little time outside, you are welcome to apply sunscreen and/or insect repellent prior to dropping your child off.
