    Hi. I am interested in sending my kid(s) to camp. They are 8 & 10. Can you specify which topics you will cover each week? I see a long list and that you are running the camp for many weeks. Also, how would a 1/2 day vs. a full day at camp look different? Thanks for as much detail as you can supply. We look forward to participating. Lori

      Each week of the camp, campers will experience a variety of STEAM-based activities, depending greatly on their age and interest level. Campers will have a choice of available activities each week in our topic areas. Campers who are enrolled in the full-day program will experience a wider variety or a more in-depth activity during the second half of the day. All campers will be encouraged to experiment within multiple disciplines of STEAM for a wider exposure; therefore, campers enrolled in multiple weeks, while note required, will have the best exposure. We will be incorporating project-based learning experiences, as well, which will allow for skills to be used in tandem, rather than simply in isolation of one another.

      So, in a nutshell, it doesn’t matter which week(s) your students attend; they will be sure to have fun!

    I am interested in this camp for my 7 year old son. Where will the camp be held? It looks like a lot of fun!
