You did an excellent job! My son had a fantastic time. … I particularly appreciated your excellent communication with parents, both before camp started and with email updates each day. It’s often hard to get a good idea of what happened at camp each day from one’s child, so it was wonderful to have your summaries. Thank you!

My child repeatedly has told me…”Mom, I am so glad that you signed me up for this camp. Thank you.” Also, he has said repeatedly…”I cannot wait to go to camp tomorrow. I wonder what we will do.”

Camp GrAd Lab 2016

Register Now for D.C./ Maryland’s best STEM Summer Camps for rising grades K-6

Now offered at FIVE venues in metro Washington D.C./ Baltimore. It’s going to be a long HOT summer! Why not send your child to the coolest STEM summer camp around, Camp GrAd Lab? Kids love our hands-on indoor and outdoor activities including Lego Robotics, electronics, physics, electronics, 3-D design, video game programming and more! (Ever ride a hovercraft?) Our campers have so much fun they don’t even know they are learning. We’ll spend most of our time in the air-conditioned rooms, but we do love to go outside when it’s not too hot. Bring a towel because we tend to get wet when we fire water rockets!

Note: Montgomery County and Howard County camps feature some of the same and some different activities. Please read appropriate camp descriptions for details!

The Great Adventure Lab has taught more than ten thousand kids to write their first programs, wire their first circuits or build and explode their first volcanoes! We’re fully insured and all instructors pass federal and state background checks.


 See you this summer!!!   (Sun photo below by NASA. Let’s hope it doesn’t get this hot!)
