STEMS Summer Science Camp (ages 15-18) will continue to provide students a fun science-based summer. We will be featuring ASSETT’s energy curriculum this summer. Our popular overnight camping experience (including whitewater rafting!) is also included.  Students will also be constructing three types of cars as part of the program.

Parents:  Our programs provide a safe, academic enrichment experience for your child during the summer months.  Our students continually achieve a high level of academic advancement every summer.  We use nationally and regionally recognized evidence-based curriculum in all programs, which are experiential in nature and rely heavily on project-based learning activities.
