Science & Hi-Tech Lab (Computer Science):

Our Science and Hi-Tech summer camp provides students challenging opportunities to explore science and technology disciplines by solving real-world problems. This camp is designed to introduce students to technology-based problem-solving techniques through hands-on laboratory experiences and high-tech activities. Students will perform physics experiments on light, sound, energy, and alternative energy sources and biology experiments on DNA, bacteria, and heat. Students will grow their own plants from seeds and they will build solar cars. Students will also learn how to code in order to create their own artistic designs that will build on their computational skills and give students a chance to be truly creative. Through these experiments and activities, they will learn how science can serve society, particularly in the areas of environment, climate change, and energy conservation.
*Students are required to bring their own electronic devices (i.e. iPad, Kindle, Android/Windows Tablets, or smartphones)

Ages: 8 – 14
Monday – Friday / 9:00am – 3:00pm (July 16 – 20)
Registration fee: $25 per student

Summer STEAM (and Coding):

Our STEAM camp combines the lessons in our Engineering & Robotics camp with our Science & Hi-Tech Lab, with one extra component… Art! Students will learn to apply their technological, more logical skills and combine it with Art to produce creative science and math projects, also allowing them to explore their knowledge and capabilities beyond the scientific realm. Students will learn coding Strategies that empowers them to engage with Computer Science as a medium for creativity, communication, problem-solving and fun! This camp is perfect for students who can’t decide on a specific aspect of STEAM to enjoy in our summer camps and want the best of all worlds by having a combination of science, technology, and art in their summer experience.

Chess & Strategic Brain Games:Brain

Finally, a camp for GAMERS! This camp is for gamers, but we don’t do video games — this is face to face, tabletop gaming. Strategic Brain Games camp will build your child’s brain by improving your child’s critical thinking skills. This camp is an enjoyable way for students to grow their minds and learn strategy and planning while socializing with other students and taking part in games and friendly competitions. We will challenge your children’s minds, through brain games like chess, riddles, puzzles, and a variety of board games. The end of the program will include a mock game show for the program participants to showcase all the fun and learning they experienced. We teach new games and run tournaments each day with prizes for winners.

Ages: 8 – 14
Monday – Friday / 9:00am – 3:00pm (August 06 – 10)
Registration fee: $25 per student

Easing into Academics:ease

Summer can’t last forever and back to school is just around the corner. Help your kids smoothly transition into the school life while having a blast and making the most of the remaining bits of summer. Each day we will play a variety of academic games, as well as work on each core subject. In English Language Arts Writing we will touch on many different genres, including poetry, short fiction, creative non-fiction, and drama. Students will also read and discuss short stories of their choice. We will ease into math with mathematical games and critical thinking riddles. We will explore science through hands-on science experiments that begin with the students asking a relevant question and which evolve into a self-directed answer. This camp is the perfect way to close summer and welcome the new school year.

Ages: 8 – 14
Monday – Friday / 9:00am – 3:00pm (August 20 – 24)
