The Summer Discovery Camp is an exciting new enrichment project at Hopkins House designed to help 4- and 5-year olds, who are transitioning to kindergarten in the fall, explore and understand the world around them through fun learning activities in basic science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
The camp is divided into two 6-week sessions and includes fun-filled daily learning activities and weekly trips to the airport, aquarium, museums, and parks. Each session culminates with a science fair hosted by the campers to share what they learned with their family and friends.
Exposing children to STEM concepts and digital technologies during the summer prepares them for success in elementary school in the fall and achievement in later life through acquisition of important skills like:
* Independent Thinking
* Inquiry & Discovery
* Understanding Rules & Principles
* Following Routines
* Multiple Intelligences
Your gift of $50, $75, $150 or more provides a scholarship to help defray a portion of the camp tuition for children of low-resourced working and military families.
