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.
Each Summer STREAM Camps meet Monday-Thursday from 9a - 2p in our office and feature 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
sensory box and open-ended STEM material exploration time
science and literature crafts
walking field trip every Wednesday to the library to conduct research
light snacks and bottled water
Each Summer STREAM Camp is offered for two consecutive weeks: first to students entering grades 3-5, and then to students entering grades 1-3. Your $295 tuition includes all camp activities, light snacks each day, and all materials. There are only 8 spots available for each camp, so register early to reserve 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.
Enroll on or before March 27 to save $45 on each camp. Want to save even more? Save an additional $25 per seat when you fill more than one seat in our camps. There are 3 ways to earn this discount:
1) enroll one child in more than one camp
2) enroll siblings in the same or different camps
3) enroll with a buddy in the same or different camps
A $25 per seat refund will be issued to your card after enrollment payments are processed.
