STEAM Academy

Campers entering Pre-K – K
June 5 – 9 and June 12 – 16
In our outdoor learning labs, art studio and gymnasium, leaders take your children on an intellectually and creatively stimulating journey. Each day includes music, water play, a mitzvah project and physical activity, and will follow a theme that integrates STEAM principles… all through a Jewish lens.


Builders’ STEAM Academy

Campers entering grades 1-2
June 5 – 9 and June 12 – 16
Campers build a fort in the woods, an obstacle course and a brick structure with a professional mason. Explore how architects integrate STEAM into their decisions and learn more about the magnetic force that pulls objects toward the Earth.


Cities of the Future

Campers entering grades 3-4
June 5 – 9
What will future cities look like? Young innovators explore ecosystems, renewable energy sources, building materials, planning and zoning. Each participant will understand the role of the city planner by creating proposals for mock cities and then building them from recycled materials.


Robotics STEAM Academy

June 5 – 9, campers entering grades 5-6
June 12 – 16, campers entering grades 3-4
Participants explore the basics of NXT Robotics Engineering. Science teachers guide each team as they build, test and program an autonomous robot using LEGO® MINDSTORMS™ technology. Teams become proficient with programming software which allows them to direct a robot to solve specific missions in a game.


Architects in Training

Campers entering grades 5-6
June 12 – 16
Campers learn the practical value of geometry, measurement, scale and proportion as they design a campus, draw floor plans and create three-dimensional scale models. STEAM, economics and civics take on new relevance with every task these young urban planners complete.
