It's Not Magic, It's STEM Camp

Accio fun! Join us for the inaugural year of our newest camp for young STEM wizards in training: It’s Not Magic, It’s STEM Camp! This week long residential camp will encourage campers entering 5-6 grades to unravel the mysteries of the universe, as they complete hands on activities and challenges inspired by everyone’s favorite school of witchcraft and wizardry. Along the way we’ll learn that when things look like magic, that means there’s an exciting new discovery waiting to be uncovered.

The week will begin Sunday night, as campers are sorted into 4 houses, which will all then compete against each other for points throughout the week. Students will earn points by participating in magically themed STEM activities and classes on subjects like Potion Making, Herbology, Astronomy, Care of Magical Creatures, and even a visit to “Holmesmead” where campers can shop for souvenirs to take home. Campers will also learn skills like soldering and woodworking as they construct their own light up wands and display stands. At the end of the week, we’ll tally up all the points, and the house with the most will win the coveted STEM cup, including first dibs on the end-of-the-week pizza party, and bragging rights until next year.
