Students will rotate through four age-appropriate sessions each day. With a variety of fun and engaging activities, students will explore science, technology, engineering, art, and math.

WHY STEAM CAMP? Students from grades 2 to 12 will find these camps exciting and stimulating! Enrichment experiences in the STEAM fields will ignite the kind of curiosity that often leads to a fulfilling and meaningful work life. A two-year study of nearly 1600 middle school students across the country revealed that “students who once participated in science summer camps were more likely to later report a career interest in the science and engineering fields.” It’s clear that enrolling your child in a STEAM focused camp is an ideal way to provide them more options as they start considering their paths through high school, college, and beyond.
