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 15th - June 26th

Nature is full of interesting things. Our Campers will have the experience of setting up their own camp. Did you know there are so many different types of flowering plants that it would be impossible to remember them all? And new flowers are still being discovered! In The Great Outdoors, your child will explore why trees have rings, the effect of sunshine on plants, weather patterns, and more!

June 29th - July 3rd

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.

July 6th - July 10th

Robots are everywhere these days. They help us assemble cars, perform surgery and explore other planets. In Rockin’ Robots your child will investigate the world of robotics as well as participating in building their very own robot and enjoy a fun filled 'Battle of the Bots'!

July 13th - July 17th

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 healthy. Let’s not forget about the most fun part: you child will enjoy some yummy treats! Our older campers in PreK and older classes will be going on a Field Trip to a Grocery Store to explore food, nutrition and other activities too!
