Just a quick note to let you know that [my daughter] has been LOVING the program you have put together– it sounded wonderful on paper and has already exceeded our high expectations.

Registration for Summer 2014 is now OPEN!
New this year: half-day camp for rising grades K-1
Our science, robotics and engineering summer camp is so fun, kids have no idea how much they’re learning! This year we’re offering some AWESOME new classes as well as some of our time-tested favorites. Join us for LEGO robotics, bridge building, [safe] explosions and huge fun! This year, our older campers will also explore the world of 3D Design and Printing, video game programming, electronics, Rockets & Race Cars and Invention Lab. Our younger campers will do some phenomenal engineering with LEGOs and will also explore a whole world that goes FIZZ, BANG, POP! We operate the most fun, educational STEM summer camps in the D.C. area! We do science OUTDOORS when possible. Check out our pricing! And … they’re staffed by many of your favorite instructors!
We’re offering two unique weeks of projects:
Curriculum A and Curriculum B. If you’d like to sign up for more than 1 week, be sure to choose one week A and one week B. They can be taken in any order. The classes are the same, but the projects are different!

Class descriptions and daily schedules
What’s the difference between Curriculum A and Curriulum B?The classes are the same, but the projects are different! If you’d like to sign up for more than one week of camp, choose one “Curriculum A” camp and one “Curriculum B” camp, so you’re child won’t repeat the same projects. They can be taken in any order.
How will campers be grouped?By age, interest and ability.
Do you provide before- or aftercare?Yes, when you register for any camp that includes mornings, you will have an option to register for before-care. When you register for any camp that includes afternoons, you will have the option to register for after-care.
What forms do you require?Several weeks before camp starts, we will email you a welcome letter with a complete electronic packet of forms that you can fill out and return to us by email or mail. The forms include health records, a liability waiver and our behavior policy.
What if MCPS extends the school year to make up for snow days?MCPS is currently applying for a waiver which would allow it to NOT extend the school year. Previous requests have been granted but that is no guarantee the same thing will happen this year. If MCPS extends classes into our first week of camp, we will give registered campers the option of: 1) a partial-week camp at pro-rated prices or 2) transfer to any other week depending on availability or 3) a full refund.
