Autumn Camp

Super educational and fun camp - Combo of science, sports, craft as well as healthy meals and snacks. Both my kids (9 and 5yo) absolutely loved it and still talk about it and the memories they made and good friends they met. Sparking Emma and her team marked them with their passion and attention to details. We will be back!

Autumn Camp

My 9 year old daughter participated in the October camp. She loved going every day and every day would return home super happy to describe her day. All the activities were well prepared and inclusive for all kids. Emma and her team were AMAZING. Every evening she sent out a recap of the day and included tons of pictures. I am sure we will be participating in a future camp. Highly recommended

Emma‘s camp was amazing and got my daughter so excited about science that she wanted a science birthday party. Emma did that as well and it was amazing. 4 months later the kids are all still talking about it.

Autumn Camp

Both my daughters ages 6 and 7 years attended the Sparks Science Camp Oct 2019.  Its the first camp that they were super excited everyday to attend.  Emma and her team are enthusiastic and happy and keep the day exciting for the kids, using their minds with all the fun experiments and then mixing it up with physical activity.  At the end of the day Emma sends out a detailed description of all they did so I could talk to them about their day.  The fact that we could continue the learning/fun even after the camp speaks volumes to their experience.  My daughters are already asking when they can go back and we will for sure be return campers!

Autumn Camp

My 9 year old absolutely loved the camp, and couldn't get enough of the experiments. The balance with sports - and the fantastic variety and free choice was great. Daily recaps were a lovely surprise and fantastic for allowing us parents to talk more with the kids about what they learned and what they liked. We are very much looking forward to another opportunity to participate again!

Autumn Camp

Our kid went to a Spark Science camp during October holidays of the first school year and loved all of it: the experiments, the trips, the people, the food -- now we're all sad that we've already booked vacation over the week of the February camp, but we're definitely coming back in summer.

Summer Camp

My son attended a science themed birthday party with Electric Emma and then attended a week long science and sports camp over the summer with her. The week was packed with fun, engaging and educational experiments and activities including a trip Technorama. They made slime, candy crystals, fizzy bath bombs, learned about invertebrates, magnets and lots more! My son loved every minute of it and at the end of the week he declared that Electric Emma was his favorite teacher ever. He wants her as his full time teacher and was very sad when camp ended!😊 He is looking forward to attending any camps Emma has to offer in the future. Highly recommend Emma and Spark Science to anyone looking for camps (or birthday parties) for their kids!

Summer Camp

My two sons aged 8 and 9 attended the sport and science summer camp in Egg. They definitely loved it! Their basic command of English was not a problem, and they enjoyed the variety of activities proposed (never imposed!). As parents, we have appreciated Emma's professionnalism -all was so well organized, and her human qualities. The daily report mailed with pictures everyday was the icing on the cake.

Summer Camp

My son attended a week-long Spark Science camp this past summer and had an absolute blast. He was exposed to a lot of new concepts and ideas during the camp, which fueled his enthusiasm for science. Emma's passion for science and teaching children is clear. I overheard a girl tell her mother, at the end of the second day of camp, "this was the best day of my life mom!"  Emma clearly goes the extra mile to ensure that her camps are an unforgettable experience for the children. I would send my son back in an instant.

Summer Camp

My son attended a week long camp during the summer. It was a perfect mix of learning and sport. My son really enjoyed going and excitedly came home every day and told me about the things he had learned. The trip to Technorama was also a highlight for him. Emma emailed daily with a thorough update of the days activities which I really appreciated. Emma is friendly, enthusiastic about what she does and very professional.

Summer Camp

Electric Emma held a fantastic Science and Sport camp in Wöllishofen. Our daughter came home every day excited, inspired, and happily exhausted. The activities were perfectly picked for the age groups so that the kids were engaged and really absorbed the information. There was a lot of learning and tons of fun. And including sports each day made for a well balanced physical and mental adventure. The food was healthy and delicious and the kids were well taken care of the entire week. And Emma provided daily summary emails and pictures to the families which really help us see the fun they were having. We will certainly be taking part in more Spark science fun in the future! Thank you!

Summer Camp

Our 7 year old daughter just spent this past week at the summer camp and she loved every single minute of it! It was so well organized and Emma did a fantastic job keeping the kids entertained the whole day. Every day was jam packed with interesting and interactive experiments where kids would learn and get educated. They also did a lot of sports activities, had a great lunch and even a trip to Technorama. Emma also made sure to update us daily with pics on the activities the children did. My daughter is already asking to go the next camp during the autumn break. Highly Recommend!!!!
