Camp Director, Christine Marsden, and her teachers offer a positive fun learning environment, one in which campers can thrive under the direction of motivated and highly skilled teachers. Before and upon arrival, all campers are evaluated by the teachers and leadership interns so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.

Attending camp is a step towards successful future. We teach kids HOW to think, lead, and achieve. We know that to inspire students, we have to fuel their imagination.
We inspire children to lead the STEM revolution. We believe in the drive we know as scientific curiosity, that fire and that inspiration. As teachers, it is our job to ignite it by sharing our excitement for discovery and investigation.
We know that learning is easier when you have a dynamic teacher. Our summer camp faculty are Council Rock high school and elementary STEM teachers. Our class size is private with a 12:1 student to teacher ratio and a 4:1 student to science leader ratio.
All learning is based on real world concepts and popular interests, guided inquiry, and experiential teamwork. Lessons are based on STEM fundamentals and NGSS and PA Science and Math Standards. SIgn up for high quality personal attention to developing children on an individual basis.
