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 1st - June 5th

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.

June 8th - June 12th

In Animal Planet, 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.

June 15th - June 19th

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!

June 22nd - June 26th

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.

June 29th - July 3rd

If you cut Earth in half, you would see several layers. The movement of the layers of the Earth formed the mountains and volcanoes, which are part of the top layer, called the crust. And rocks? Rocks are pieces of the crust that have broken off. In Epic Explorers, your child will explore the many layers of the Earth.

July 6th - July 10th

It’s Your Move encourages children to use their wits to outplay their opponents no matter what game they’re playing. We will create and play board games and card games, and then we will head outside to play some outdoor games. We will also recreate a game show or two. Win, lose or draw, the point of playing games is to have fun!

July 13th - July 17th

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 20th - July 24th

Every day at The Goddard School’s summer camp is a new adventure! Join us as we explore the Tropics! Tropical Fun is on our minds and we can't wait to explore the islands, deep blue sea and more!

July 27th - July 31st

Technology is everywhere; computers, tablets and smartphones have become an essential part of our everyday lives. But how do they work? In Code Academy, we’ll tackle this question and more as your child explores the various uses of technology. Your child will also have the opportunity to try writing some computer code, which is a valuable skill in the 21st century.

August 3rd - August 7th

We need your child’s help to complete a top-secret assignment, but we cannot reveal the specific details as they are highly confidential and can only be delivered in person. What we can tell you is that your child will need to join our Secret Agents camp to complete a fun training course, gather clues, use different disguises to go undercover and perform other assignments.

August 10th - August 14th

Summer camp at The Goddard School is powered by STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) and fueled by fun! As we wind down our fun filled summer we will focus on the Science this week! What makes a flower grow? How do we make slime? Potato clocks and homemade Ice Cream fuel this Science packed week!

August 17th - August 19th

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. What happens if you mix Vinegar and Baking Soda together? All of those what if questions will spark curiosity in children and we can't wait to answer those questions. Your child will discover how simple machines, experiments and the what ifs can all make life easier in Engi-nuity!
