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 activities set up for campers who are between 7-10 years old. The activities develop inquiry and design skills through engineering challenges. KEEPERS℠ campers are divided into two groups: Grades 2-3 and Grades 4-5.  



Meet our new KEEPERS℠ Teachers for 2018!!

Cathy Brody is a certified K-8 teacher, technology integrator and administrator, a curious and compassionate teacher, and learner. Cathy’s experience includes teaching children how to be curious thinkers and problem solvers to make the world a better place. She loves to be outside coaching field hockey, running, and playing golf.


Carmelina Cestrone has taught science to middle school students for 10 years at Sacred Heart School in Hampton, NH, before going to Barnard School in South Hampton to teach science and STEAM to grades 4-8. She attended KEEPERS for Teachers Camp and then implemented a KEEPERS Camp at Barnard School and Seabrook Elementary School under the mentorship of the Department of Education’s Science Director, Barbara Hopkins. From 2014-2016, she coordinated with parents of girls in grades 6-8 from Barnard School to attend the NH Seacoast Expanding Your Horizons Conference, which is an all-day conference designed to immerse young women with hands-on experiences in STEM. Carmelina has also organized various STEM field trips for the students at Barnard, such as Logan Airport’s Aviation and Maritime STEM Education Expo and Ocean Discovery Day at UNH.



Kiley Remiszewski is returning to KEEPERS again, but this summer as an Assistant Teacher where she will lead activities for both age groups of campers and support our new teachers. We're super excited to have Kiley back!
