Engage your kids with activities and games that will build their skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

Camps will run Monday through Thursday and are best suited for grades 2nd through 6th. 2nd and 3rd graders will be working on introductory 101 and 102 material, while 4th, 5th, and 6th grader will be working on the more challenging 201,202, and 203 projects.

Your child's day will consist of 1 hour of Lego Robotics, a dive into engineering that allows students to create animated robots out of Lego pieces, 1 hour of Tynker Coding & Game Design, a gamified entry into programming that allows your child's imagination to create real live video games they can play with their friends, and 1 hour of Math Edge, a fun take on math where kids work together in a group to solve math puzzles and problems.  

Your child will enjoy either a half day, or full day of STEM and education based activities. Choose from an AM camp (9:30am-12:30pm), a PM camp (1:30pm-4:30pm) or both for a full day of fun with a lunch period (please provide student's lunch) in between.
