What is camp all about?
STEAM Revolution is focused on science, technology, engineering, arts and MAKER skills. We integrate these topics into daily activities, where students will have the opportunity to design and build projects as a team and individually. We will be learning skills like electronic circuits, woodworking, project design and mapping, coding and lots more. A chief characteristic of this camp is that it is a “student centered” camp where students can assist in the decisions about what we do on a week to week basis. Each camp week starts with a design session where campers decide how they will interact with the challenge for that week.
How is the camp staffed?
This camp is led by a senior director and is staffed by specialists in areas of science education, technology and applied arts. Specialists and guests will attend camp during the 7-week summer term. Our staff includes teachers, college students and experts in various fields as well as our own full-time staff of instructors. Students will be in groups of 10-15 kids with three assigned team leads.
Who are the organizers of this camp?
Curious-on-Hudson is the organizer of STEAM Revolution Camp. We have provided STEAM enrichment programs to schools and communities in the NYC region for over five years and we have operated our own summer camps and classes every year since 2013. This our first year at the College of Mt. St. Vincent but we have loads of experience running camps just like this one. Learn more about us at this link. (curiousonhudson.com)
How many campers will attend?
The camp will accommodate groups of 10-15 kids per peer group with a maximum attendance of 60 students per week.
What grade does my child need to be in to register?
Your child should be entering Grades 2-8. If your child is in a different grade and you believe he/she would be a good fit for STEAM Camp Revolution, please email us @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
What about food?
You can bring your own brown bag, healthy lunch or you can choose from a wide assortment of delicious foods in the college dining hall. There are hot and cold food options available every day. The dining hall is clean, spacious, offers numerous alternatives and even has an outdoor dining terrace! We are currently working with the college to determine a summer dining fee for campers.
We would love for as many young people as interested were able to attend our camp! If you are interested in a scholarship for your child (or another child you feel would greatly benefit from this program), please complete a brief information form at this link.
