2022 KEEPERS dates:  July 11-15 or July 18-22

(This is a one-week camp so you can only register for one of the above weeks)

 

We’ve revamped KEEPERS camp from STEM to STEAM!! Our expanded curriculum will include more general science, technology, engineering, math and lots of ART. Our teachers are planning an amazing array of fun activities to spur your child’s interest and excitement for STEM by channeling their creativity into learning about the many aspects of their world - Weather, Water, Environment, Motion, and Invention!

Here’s a taste of activities they’ll enjoy:  percolate soil samples on Environment Day, create a barometer on Weather Day, build a roller coaster on Motion Day, water usage sponge game on Water Day, invent a new game that gets you up and moving on Invention Day, and so many more!! The morning will be a power-packed time of activities, stories, design challenges, and of course, time for making new friends!
