Our Summer camp
We are thrilled to announce our STEAM Camp for Summer 2023: Full STEAM Ahead! In ‘Full STEAM Ahead!’ we have 8 weeks of exciting STEAM-related activities where children can learn through hands-on, down, and dirty fun!
Our summer camp will serve children ages 6 to 8 years old (and 5-year-old SAECC alumni). It will be a hands-on enrichment program that provides opportunities for growth, friendship, and self-empowerment while observing all safety measures.
We have crafted intentional activities that reinforce what children have learned through the school year, and continuously make connections to the environment, the global community, and each other. By the end of summer, we hope our campers will have great stories to share and meaningful memories to cherish.
Our summer will be divided into 2-week sessions, each with its own theme.
We are looking forward to a safe summer filled with learning and fun for everyone! For program questions, please contact Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kemi at email@example.com. For enrollment questions, please contact Sadè at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Let’s take this session to get back to nature and all its wonder. We will be growing and using different plants in cooking, art and gardening activities, practicing good earth stewardship, and taking a look at the diversity of environments and living things.
Catapults, race cars, marshmallow towers, and a trip to the Building Museum fill this fun session. Campers will flex their innovation muscles in these two weeks dedicated to the building of amazing things.
We will be learning about different animals big and small, where they live, what they need, and how they help us. We will be growing triops and mealworms, and enjoying a trip to visit some reptiles!
Brushes and Beats
What better way to close out summer than to create and reflect on our summer fun with big, bold colors and sounds? This final session will provide a multitude of opportunities to splatter and smear, to sing, dance, and drum our hearts out!
This summer will also include a variety of guest vendors and field trips. Please note, these events are subject to change due to weather, attendance, or vendor considerations.
