Our Philosophy – The goal of our camp is to provide quality educational opportunities that are both unique and fun for our campers, while ensuring a safe environment and an affordable price. We place a strong emphasis on the exploration of scientific topics that are interactive in nature and serve as a stepping stone for children to grow a deeper and more meaningful interest in the STEM fields. We are also a camp that encourages risk taking and new learning experiences in an effort to enhance campers’ self-esteem. Our general hope is that your children’s experience with us is a memorable time in their lives that will benefit them as they grow into young adults.
