Mad Scientist 

Muahaha! Come experiment with us. Young scientists will conduct experiments and see what unfolds. Using their inquisitive skills they will test their theories and find out the difference between light and sound. Which objects can be seen if light is available and which give off their own light? Why do nocturnal eyes gleam in the dark? Let’s find out!

Ten week-long 1st-2nd day camp sessions available. Each week runs from, 9:00 am to 3:30 pm daily.

    2. Click the Register button, complete the form, and pay with a credit card. 
    3. Wait for your confirmation email and use the link to log into our NEW online health system: CAMPDOCS
    This is where you will tell us about your camper, fill out health information, emergency contacts, other important safety data, and submit the following required files:The Mandatory Health Packet: Universal Health Record from your child’s health care provider. 

    Including an Immunization History:
    • Please note, if your health care provider will not be including a complete immunization form the Health Department requires a written statement signed by the parent or guardian explaining how the administration of immunizing agents conflicts with the camper’s exercise of bona fide religious tenets or practices. General philosophical or moral objection to immunization shall not be sufficient for an exemption on religious grounds. 
    • A copy of your insurance card.
    • A copy of any information regarding your child's activity restrictions/special needs (ex. IEP, ISFP).
    • Complete the form submission through CAMPDOCS 7 days prior to the start of the camp session. New Jersey state law requires that campers submit a current health record each year.

    Failure to submit all forms to TNC 7 days before the first day of camp will result in forfeiture of your registration fee.
