Thank you for considering Knowledge Builders’ Summer Camp this year.   We cannot express how excited we are that you choose Knowledge Builders.   As we continue to move forward from an unusual year, we are so excited to be celebrating our 15th annual summer camp.   Just like we promised a "Summer to Remember" to our campers last summer, this year we will not only provide a fun-energetic educated filled summer camp but we are gearing up to give our campers some "Summer Cheer "!     

Albert Einstein once said, “Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think".  STEAM is the abbreviation for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math. It’s an integrated approach to learning that encourages students to think more broadly about real-world problems.  It helps students:

  • Ask questions

  • Connect the dots

  • Problem solve

  • Think creatively

  • Be innovative

Knowledge Builders offers a 7 week STEAM program during summer, accompanied by educational and fun-filled field trips.  Our STEAM Summer Camp promotes teamwork, curiosity, encourages problem solving, and builds resiliency. We are excited to offer four full days of hands on experiments, exploring, researching, creating and designing projects that will include all components of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Math).  All games and crafts are centered around the six areas of STEAM such as Coding, Robotics, Chemistry, Zoology, Engineering and Ocean Science.    Your child can be expecting to:

  • Write code!

  • Build and program with robotics!

  • Conduct scientific experiments, investigations and research!

  • Build blocks of creativity!

  • Showcase creativity with artistic and musical creation!
