At The STEAM Project, we are pleased to be able to offer programming tailored towards different age groups so that all children can gain skills and have fun in an age appropriate setting.

JK / SK Freshkids

As our youngest group of thinkers at the STEAM Project, Freshkids enjoy experiences that let their imaginations run wild. Our high staff to camper ratio ensures they have a high level of supervision, attention, and instruction as campers are introduced to basic skills and hands-on projects. Patient and nurturing individuals are specifically chosen as our Freshkids counselors to encourage young campers to collaborate and think as a group, understand/respect the thoughts and ideas of others, be proud of their abilities and accomplishments, and overall, just have fun.

Gr. 1-2 Sprockets

At this age, it is important to have the opportunity to experience the complete process of experimenting, even when the ideas or the execution don’t turn out as expected. Our Sprockets are taught to develop resilience and ask questions to improve their situation through innovation, as we know that they are natural explorers who have many questions about the world around them. We have created a program focused on finding increasingly complex and creative solutions to solve problems, learning how to use basic hand tools with purpose, and helping campers respond to time management issues using structure and discipline.
