Frequently Asked Questions
We have up to 20 children per camp. We usually become fully booked about 2 months in advance. Book early to secure your child`s place at camp.
How many children attend camp?
Our camp days build on prior learning each day. We pride ourselves in really getting to know each other throughout the week of camp and developing strong relationships where children feel safe and can learn to trust each other. We have found week long camps provide children the stability in which they can grow and learn. We therefore do not open the camp up to offer single days.
Can I book individual days?
We keep up to date with guidelines and follow the Coronvirus measures very carefully.
We sanitize equipment and surfaces regularly, we wear PPE as much as possible and we adhere as much as is possible (when working with children) with social distancing guidelines.
We share good practise with the children to enable them to help reduce the spread.
Symptomatic staff and children will not be permitted to attend camp until they receive a negative Coronavirus test.
What are the Coronavirus precautions ?
We offer 50CHF early booking discount and a sibling discount of 25CHF off the second child`s place.
We offer various other promotions on throughout the year. Subscribe to our mailing list to stay updated.
Is there a sibling / early booking discount?
Lunch at camp is healthy, delicious and sometimes themed. We all sit and eat together to enjoy our food. We offer healthy snacks like fruit and veggies as well as special treats like ice cream, cakes and croissants - after all that activity the treats are well deserved!
If we go on a trip your child will have a balanced packed lunch complete for the day.
We are very careful with allergies and cater to dietary requirements including fussy eaters, vegetarian, (and kosher on request).
What is included in the lunch option?
We charge extra for this service as we rent the venue and must pay our staff based on an hourly agreement. Please speak to us to see how we can accommodate you and your child.
Do you offer early and later drop off?
To book your place please email us to see if we have space.
Upon return of a completed booking form we will request payment via bank transfer.
When we have received your payment your child`s place will be confirmed by email.
Please note: Until payment is received your child`s place at camp cannot be guaranteed.
How do I book?
We normally have 4 staff at camp and 1 on standby.
This allows the camp to split into various groups for age, ability, variety of activities.
This gives a high ratio of 1 staff for every 5 children allowing us to go on exciting day trips and ensuring safety and quality at all times.
Sometimes we will have volunteers (in addition to our staff). Our volunteers are trained and have a criminal record check before hand.
How many staff will be at camp?
Cancellations made 28 days or more in advance of the event date, will receive a refund minus 100CHF from the total cost. This covers admin costs. Cancellations made within 28 days will incur a 100% fee.
Should your child experience COVID-10 symptoms they will need a negative COVID-19 test to be allowed to attend camp. We must protect everyone. We do not issue refunds for days missed due to COVID related issues.
What is your refund policy?
Here`s what parents have to say about our camps!
Mission to Mars
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.

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.

The best camp I ever saw! Everything on the very high level: organisation, fun, materials, teachers, time. Highly recommend!

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!
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!

Emma runs amazing events! My kids have always loved attending her camps. Every detail is very well planned and matches her theme. She is very well organized and fun. I would highly recommend her camps and events!

We can't say enough good things about the Spark Science crew. Our daughter loves the camps and comes home each day bubbling with excitement about what she did and learned at camp. She has made some wonderful new friends and her love of science as simply grown.
Science and Sport 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!

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!
