Summer Camp 2023

Full S.T.R.E.A.M. Ahead!

S.T.R.E.A.M. principles are integrated into our curriculum throughout the year, but this summer we will be exploring each domain in depth for an exciting two-week period. These concepts will be imparted through a series of activities that will not only teach the children about the weekly theme, but also help to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

From creating robotic hands and balloon barometers to making vision boards and writing a haiku, the children will be hands-on participants in their own learning. During the course of each interactive bi-weekly subject, children will discover why S.T.R.E.A.M. concepts are important both now and in later life.

Campers will experience art projects, science experiments, critical thinking activities, cooking projects and math and literacy activities. Our unique Empathy and Mindfulness curriculums promote development of the brain and spirit. Campers will also participate in weekly podcasting and video activities as well as chess tournaments that take place each month. Sign up today and guarantee a summer that is Full S.T.R.E.A.M. Ahead!

Enroll your School-Age children today for the Stepping Stone School Summer Program at The BraineryTM where they will go FULL S.T.R.E.A.M AHEAD!
