According to Peter Scales and the American Camp Association, "Camp is one of the few institutions where young people can experience and satisfy their need for physical activity, creative expression and true participation in a community environment. Most schools don't satisfy all these needs."
There is a projected 14% increase in STEM-related jobs, but only 16% of high school students are proficient in STEM subjects. With our STEAM, standards-based curriculum at the Student Stewards Fall Break Camp, students will be better prepared for high school and beyond!
