Located on-campus at the University of New Hampshire in Durham, KEEPERS℠ provides a one week, half-day camp experience involving hands-on, minds-on challenges set up for campers entering grades 2-5. The activities develop inquiry and design skills through engineering challenges.
This summer, we are dividing our KEEPERS℠ campers into two separate groups: Grades 2-3 and Grades 4-5.
Cost for our 2017 program: $185 (t-shirts are available for purchase for $10)
Registrations are coming in for our 2017 program. There are spots left in most sessions (however, Grades 2-3: 1st Session is fully enrolled.)
Our KEEPERS teachers are busy planning NEW activities and challenges, so if you want your child to have an amazing summer camp experience, register today!
Matt Endrizzi, science teacher at Somersworth High School. As a teacher and former researcher, Matt sees KEEPERS℠ as a wonderful STEM camp: "The kids learn through experimentation as they ask questions, measure, calculate, design, and build." Matt will teach the Grades 4-5 group for 2017.
Abby Hatfield, physical science teacher and science dept. chair at Newmarket High School. What motivates them as teachers? "Observing a learning moment," says Abby. "It's what we look for." Abby will take 2017 off from teaching KEEPERS, as she and her husband are expecting a baby - Congrats!
Beth Sommers, Curriculum Integration and Extended Learning Coordinator at Greenland Central School. Beth was new to KEEPERS℠ in 2016 and taught the afternoon sessions of KEEPERS℠. Beth will teach the Grades 2-3 group for 2017. She also worked with our KEEPERS for Teachers program in 2016 which was a teacher professional development opportunity.
