2020 Summer STEAM Camps
2020 is NOT going to stop ingenuity! Ignite’s Summer STEM Camps are on!
At Ignite, your child's safety is our primary concern. STEAM learning is collaborative and students learn best from each other. To create a safe lab that still allows for protected collaboration, we have changed themes and STEAM activities to allow for individual ingenuity, limited camp size to 8-10 campers, and put in place stringent cleaning protocols. Please be aware that we recommend that teachers wear face masks, but if a teacher has a medical condition that prohibits the wearing of a face covering, we will not require the use of face masks.

What do camps look like?
Each week has a different STEAM theme. Each day campers experience new activities and exciting experiments. Your child will be welcomed at the door, wash their hands, and get busy building their first activity. Campers are active and excitedly working. The space is filled with the noise of creative engineering and collaboration. This year, we won't get to collaborate as closely on our challenges, but we'll find ways to work together! Cardboard, recyclable materials, markers, all colors of tape, wheels, dowels, and craft supplies are ready for kids to use while building. We will offer a snack time, but most kids want to just keep working! By the end of the week, campers will have applied new concepts and skills to the scientific and design thinking process to creatively problem solve and build new inventions.
2020 half-day weekly Summer Camps run June 15, 2020 through August 11, 2020. Morning sessions will meet from 9:30-12:00. Afternoon sessions will meet from 1:30-4:00.
Most of our camps are designed for kids who will be enrolled in Second grade through Eighth grade in the fall. We have a special Literature and STEAM camp planned for children who will be enrolled in Kindergarten, First, and Second grade next year called How Things Work! Check it out - it's a great way to help prepare your child for school!
