Primary Themes (3-6 Years)

Weeks 1 and 2: Carnival

Join us for a week of carnival games, food and fun!

Weeks 3 and 4: Mad Scientist

Science is all around us! Campers will discover how different people use science to do their jobs well.

Week 5: Sea to Shining Sea

We will celebrate the Fourth of July by learning about our nation’s birthday with a camp full of patriotic activities.

Weeks 6 and 7: Ooey Gooey

We will get messy this week as we explore different science experiments such as making play-dough, oobleck and slime. The students will see and enjoy a variety of hands on experiments. Come get Messy!

Weeks 8 and 9: Rainforest

Look through your hand lens to find all the interesting and colorful animals in our creative rainforest! Students will make their own vest to start their journey of discovery.

Elementary Themes (6-14 years)

Week 1: Coding and Digital Design STEM

Join us at the crossroads of coding and digital design! In this camp kids explore how technology has revolutionized video production, website design, 3D modeling and more. Our young, inspired thinkers use software to create their own logos, “photoshop” pictures to produce exciting visual effects, and generate three dimensional virtual representations of their unique product ideas! Balancing design with coding, campers use MIT’s Scratch to increase their understanding of logic and programming.

Weeks 2 and 3: International Cooking

Let’s travel while we cook! Students will learn about different countries with international foods. The best part of cooking is eating!

Week 4: Wacky World of Aircraft STEM

It’s time for takeoff! The adventure begins with a steep climb to cruising altitude as our aspiring pilots learn the fundamentals of unpowered, subsonic, and supersonic flight. Campers earn their wings building their own aircraft ranging from paper airplanes to balsa models. The week would not be complete without a study of VTOL (Vertical Take-Off & Landing vehicles) and remotely operated aircraft. Our pilots wrap up the voyage by assembling their own rubberband powered helicopters and experimenting with hand sensing drones!

Week 5: Sea to Shining Sea

We will celebrate the Fourth of July by learning about our nation’s birthday with a camp full of patriotic activities.

Week 6: High Voltage Heroes STEM

Amplify your child’s interest in electronics as they power their inner hero! Through an understanding of circuit components and the flow of electricity, campers arm themselves with the knowledge to create super gadgets that save the day. From series and parallel circuits to capacitors and electromagnetic motors, the nanoscopic world of fast-moving electrons brings superheroes to life. With projects such as creating a customized light-up superhero mask and building a scale model “heromobile” of their very own, kids feel charged up and ready to take on any challenge.

Weeks 7 and 8: Drama and Theater

Drama is a wonderful tool to unlock your child’s imagination. The skills students develop will be useful to them in any situation. We will create the backdrops and scenery for our creative play.

Week 9: Kids Crime Lab STEM

Join the CSI team as we investigate the mysteries of the living world through forensic biology. Designed as a suspense-building “whodunit” experience, Kids Crime Lab guides campers through the discovery of clues and the tackling of challenges tied to topics such as cellular structure and DNA. From bacterium to blood type, kids learn how to interpret data and draw conclusions necessary to crack the case. Secret message glasses, microscopes, and DIY lab kits are just a few of the CSI tools that campers create and take home for further crime scene investigations!
