The Goddard School’s summer camp is powered by STEAM and fueled by fun!

Our summer camp curriculum incorporates STEAM learning (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) into exciting, one-of-a-kind and fun experiences for your child every day! We offer a broad range of programs and mini-camps to pique the interest and curiosity of every child.

The founding principle of The Goddard School’s curriculum is that children experience the deepest, most genuine learning when they are having fun. We have integrated this philosophy into every aspect of our summer camp to foster play-based learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. We’ve created a variety of camps so your children can find a program they will absolutely love. See them below!

Our Camps

June 26th - June 30th

Whether your child loves taking center stage or prefers working behind the scenes, your child can explore acting, set and costume design, stage lighting and make-up in Star Performers. We will also teach puppetry and help the children put on a puppet show.

July 3rd - July 7th

In Road Trip USA, we’ll crisscross the United States of America from the comfort of the classroom as we discover the cultures, foods, people and landmarks that make this country unique. If your child wants to learn about a particular place, tell us! Everyone can help us plan the trip.

July 10th - July 14th

In GOOOAAALL!!!, your child will take to the field to play some familiar sports and learn some new ones. We’ll also teach the rules of the games and the importance of good sportsmanship. If we play team sports, your child might create a jersey, pick a team name and even choose a team mascot.

July 17th - July 21st

In Wee Rock, your child will have the opportunity to sing, play instruments and investigate various types of music, including rock, pop, classical and more. We’ll even teach your aspiring musician how to make instruments from household items!

July 24th - July 28th

In Animal Adventures, your child will go on a safari to learn all about the beautiful and sometimes strange animals in the world. We’ll sample animal-themed crafts, books and games in the classroom and then venture outside to learn about the critters that dwell in our own backyard.

July 31st - August 4th

Art has been around for a long time. People were drawing on the walls of caves more than 35,000 years ago! Now your child can create some unique art in Paint. Draw. Sculpt. Your child will create art with crayons, paint, clay and more.

August 7th - August 11th

Simple machines help us carry out many basic tasks. If you need to lift something heavy, you might use a pulley. If you want to keep a door open, you might put a wedge between the bottom of the door and the ground. Your child will discover how simple machines can make life easier in Engi-nuity!

August 14th - August 18th

Explore the science of food in Kitchen Chemists! Your child will mix together different ingredients and cook them to make something delicious. We will also explore what kinds of foods the children like, what they would like to learn to make and how to eat healthily. Let’s not forget about the most fun part: you child will enjoy some yummy treats!

August 21st - August 25th

Books are gateways to new worlds filled with interesting characters and stories. Authors in Training offers your child the chance to bring a world, its characters and their stories to life. We’ll also dive into other areas of literature, such as poetry and non-fiction. Younger children can narrate or draw their stories, connecting meaning to pictures and words.

August 28th - August 31st

Out of This World takes your child on an adventure to find out what the constellations look like, how astronauts traveled from the Earth to the moon and so much more. We might even build a space shuttle and take an imaginary trip to Mars.
