The long, lazy days of summer... Kids look forward to a break from their studies, while parents worry that all that “doing nothing” will wreak havoc on their performance when school resumes in the fall.
Learning shouldn’t stop during the summer months. Luckily, it doesn’t have to, as parents have a wide variety of options to help their children have fun while they learn, all summer long. Whatever a child’s interests and abilities, parents can find a summer camp to fit his or her needs.
Many parents turn to science-based camps when making their summer selections. Science camps can introduce children to a world of discovery while sparking their imaginations.
In an age when science is as vital as reading, writing, and arithmetic, science camps help develop a vital skill.
Take Lakehill’s Science Olympiad Camps for example. These camps are full of STEM activities, designed especially for Middle School students. The curriculum is engaging, allowing campers to experience how science works in the real world. Build air-powered bottle rockets and balsa wood airplanes that glide great distances. Design bridges and see how many buckets of sand they can hold without breaking. Develop and test your own original time-keeping devices. Enjoy science-based games like Science Taboo and Build It Write It with LEGO blocks. Create computer games using the MIT Scratch programming system. The sky’s the limit in these camps!
