What Do Kids Do at Camp?
Our one-, two-, three- and four-week camps blend academic progression with enjoyable activities that get children outside and encourage them to engage their creativity. We teach through hands-on, real-life experiences, showing kids cause and effect and allowing them to make connections between scientific concepts. A typical day includes:
- Three Science Stations, which educate through experiments that take 70 minutes each to complete.
- Two Outside Action Stations, where children play games outside.
- One Camp Rally, which includes announcements, songs and dress-up-day celebrations.
How Early STEM and Science Camps Benefit Kids
Science camps in Sacramento enhance problem-solving skills. Kids see the scientific method in action and discover why it’s critical. Summer science camp also combats summer slide, keeping children’s minds active and engaged.
While children learn at our camps, we focus on the fun. We want them to have a good time as they learn — after all, they’re kids. They like making messes and being silly, and so do we. Kids collaborate in teams of three and four at our camps, which teaches them the value of teamwork.
Then, they split up to work independently, which shows them how to try new things and keep reaching for their goals. This distinct combination of learning science and social skills makes our camp model stand out.
