We work to make sure your child can stay engaged with a fun, intellectual program where they may work on coding, robotics, engineering and other subjects to keep a lasting interest in STEAM fields. We separate the camp programs based on the skill level that the child is at, which typically corresponds to the age of the program. Junior programs are only meant to be for ages 4-7, for example.
