Main Camp Themes (Ages 2-10)

Week 1: Aloha Summer

Welcome to camp! Campers will make new lasting friendships through ice breakers, art projects, STEM challenges and more. We will explore volcanoes, learn about Hawaiian traditions and dance to Hawaiian music.

Week 2: Survive it

Can your team survive it? This week is all about the importance of teamwork. Campers will have to work together to complete different activities such as tug-of-war, noodle tag, minute to win it and a scavenger hunt.

Week 3: Sports Center

We are stepping up to the plate, swinging the club and scoring touchdowns this week! The campers will learn about and play a variety of different sports, from football to soccer, while incorporating math and physics.

Week 4: Out of This World

We are blasting off and exploring the planets and the stars this week. We will make galaxy slime, look at constellations and even eat astronaut food!

Week 5: Party in the USA

We are hitting the road and visiting exciting destinations across the United States! Campers will explore landmarks, make a personalized license plate, explore fireworks in a jar and more as we celebrate Independence Day!

Week 6: Creative Campers

Charcoal drawings, clay, still art and portraits are just a few of the different art techniques that campers will be exploring this week. Campers will learn how to use different materials to create amazing works of art, while learning facts about famous artists.

Week 7: Character Counts

The six pillars are: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship. CHARACTER COUNTS! This week in camp the campers will learn the importance of each pillar and participate in activities based around each characteristic.

Week 8: Community Helpers

Campers will learn the importance of different careers that hold our communities together. We will write thank you letter to our local first responders and raise money for a local charity.

Week 9: Safari Adventure

Jump in the jeep and get your binoculars ready, we are going on a safari! We will travel to the African Savanna and learn interesting facts about the beautiful wildlife that roams there.

Week 10: We Will Rock You

Show off your talents as you sing and dance this week! Campers will sing karaoke with friends and  have the opportunity to form their own bands. We will also create music with common classroom materials and learn about different instruments.

STEM Camp (VPK Entering Kindergarten)

Weeks 3 & 4: Introduction to Coding

This is the class for any kid who has ever played a video game or watched a cartoon and wondered how they were made. We introduce students to Scratch, a coding language created by MIT that is designed to help kids learn how to code. This class combines technology and creativity as kids learn the basics of coding and how to apply their knowledge to make video games and animations. The more they learn, the more details and effects they can add, which makes them want to learn more. This is a class for the beginner coder and no previous experience is necessary.

Weeks 5 & 6: Science of Making

From family homes and skyscrapers to highways and bridges, nearly every aspect of our lives is impacted by the structures we use. Students learn the basics of how structures are made through a series of fun and exciting hands-on activities that are designed especially for this age group. Students will see the world in a whole new way as they gain an understanding of how structures around them are made. They will also get chance to construct items, such as paper buildings and spinning helicopters as they become the engineers of tomorrow!

Weeks 7 & 8: Science of Building

Students get the opportunity to explore how science impacts how the world around us works. Some of our interactive group activities include building LED necklaces and foil boats, as well as studying the biomechanics of how a leaping lemur leaps and the chemical reaction of a volcano eruption. This module will open students’ eyes to the inner-working of the world and get them excited to learn more!

Weeks 9 & 10: Calculate the Possibilities

We take math off the page and put it where it exists – everywhere! Children learn the wonders of mathematics is a part of everything from science and engineering to music and sports. They also get to learn about fascinating mathematical concepts through interactive activities and group projects, such as learning about patterns and probability by creating a Pascal’s triangle, and about geometry by creating möbius strips. Through this module, students gain insight into how math is applied everywhere.

STEM Camp (1st Grade to 10 Years Old)

Weeks 3 & 4: Introduction to Coding

This is the class for any kid who has ever played a video game or watched a cartoon and wondered how they were made. We introduce students to Scratch, a coding language created by MIT that is designed to help kids learn how to code. This class combines technology and creativity as kids learn the basics of coding and how to apply their knowledge to make video games and animations. The more they learn, the more details and effects they can add, which makes them want to learn more. This is a class for the beginner coder and no previous experience is necessary.

Weeks 5 & 6: Compute to Win

From family homes and skyscrapers to highways and bridges, nearly every aspect of our lives is impacted by the structures we use. Students learn the basics of how structures are made through a series of fun and exciting hands-on activities that are designed especially for this age group. Students will see the world in a whole new way as they gain an understanding of how structures around them are made. They will also get chance to construct items, such as paper buildings and spinning helicopters as they become the engineers of tomorrow!

Weeks 7 & 8: Science and Engineering in Action

Now it’s time to put some of our learning into action! Using everyday items that can be found around the house, students participate in activities and group projects that allow them to create and construct objects that demonstrate scientific principles. This might include a miniature zipline to represent gravity and fraction, or a catapult to represent kinetic energy. Daily lessons also include an array of other activities, such as scientific demonstrations, virtual field trips, team-based gaming, and more.

Weeks 9 & 10: Captivate and Accelerate

Students continue applying every aspect of STEM to take their building skills to the next level! Through games and group projects that spark their imagination and sharpen their critical thinking skills, this module shows students what they can do when they have the power of STEM. Examples of the activities we do include constructing mega marble runs and testing marshmallow structures in an earthquake simulator. This module challenges and captivates young minds and lets them see what they can accomplish with STEM.
