Grouped by grade and nurtured by our incredible staff, campers take on art, science and outdoor activities tailored to their level, and they learn lasting innovation skills like collaboration and reflection. As campers grow, our curriculum evolves to include more advanced concepts, complex projects and creative freedom.

After a week at camp, you’ll hear your kids use words like “trusses” and “visionary” without missing a beat. You’ll probably even hear why mistakes are marvelous things to make. All this engrossing learning is wrapped in four, fresh, weekly themes. This summer, your camper might build a rocket in Space Explorers, take Ansel Adams-inspired photographs in National Parks Adventure, engineer an archery bow in Galileo Olympics or design a kaleidoscope in Galileo Makers: Toys. Every week is an eye-opening new adventure.

We maintain a 10:1 camper-to-staff ratio, even as Stars begin to think and act more independently. We leave them to pursue projects longer—sometimes developing a single idea over several days.


3rd-5th graders
