Small group workshops are a fantastic option for students with special interests or a desire to boost academic skills. Our workshops are research-based, taught by qualified teachers, aligned to the Common Core State Standards, and built from common needs demonstrated by local students. Some workshops even feature two teachers! Our workshops are aligned to curriculum students are learning in their classrooms.

summer s.t.r.e.a.m. camps: registration now open
Kids Under Construction is proud to present our Summer S.T.R.E.A.M. Camps this year! We took STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) to a whole new level by adding READING and ART to each week's curriculum. STEM challenges offer students the opportunity to think outside the box to come up with creative and innovative solutions to everyday problems, and the problem-solving system that students use to complete these challenges will help foster a growth mindset. Our Summer STREAM Camps are packed full of activities that use every part of students' brains, and because we know that all students learn in different ways, we've added in activities to suit visual, audio, and kinesthetic learners.
covid-19 health & safety precautions:
We slashed our camp enrollment to allow social distancing and compliance with all health and safety regulations. During camp, we will:
maintain at least 6 feet of distance between students,
provide materials kits for each student to use throughout camp,
have individual desks and chairs for each student,
offer masks to each student upon entry,
reinforce health precautions established by families as it pertains to mask-wearing and hand-washing,
enforce student hand-washing upon entry, before and after snack, before and after using the restroom, and before departure,
sanitize the bathroom before and after camp, as well as before and after each use,
sanitize high-touch areas before and after camp, and
make sure your child has an AMAZING camp experience with their peers!
Each Summer STREAM Camp meets 2 days a week for 2 weeks from 9a - 12p in our office and features the following activities:
STEM challenges inspired by some of our favorite children's picture books
binary, directional, loop, and if/the/else coding center rotations
engineering competitions and growth mindset activities based on well-loved fairy tale characters
common core math activities to prepare for next school year
science and literature crafts
light snacks and bottled water (optional; you may also send your child to camp with a snack from home)
Each Summer STREAM Camp is offered for two weeks: Students entering grades 1-3 are invited to join us on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and students entering grades 3-5 are invited to join us Mondays and Wednesdays. Your $245 tuition includes all camp activities, light snacks each day, and all materials. There are only 6 spots available for each camp, so register early to secure your spot.
Please register for Summer STREAM Camps according to your child's grade level next fall (2020-2021). For students entering third grade in the fall, you have the option to choose either camp depending on your child's needs, maturity, and amount of support needed. Our camps for students entering grades 1-3 will offer modified activities, increased teacher guidance, and literacy support. If your soon-to-be third grader is reading at a mid third grade level, can write a paragraph independently, and is proficient in their math facts, they will be fine in the camp for students entering grades 3-5 in the fall.
