The Doane Stuart School is known for having a traditional but flexible curriculum that allows students to follow their passions and know the joy of discovery. These same concepts are carried forth in their all-inclusive summer camp program, SCAMP.
Beyond Your Typical Summer Camp
The SCAMP summer program includes the traditional three Rs of reading, writing, and arithmetic, as well as art, music, and drama - and it's all centered around having fun! Campers will have access to the entire school building, including the computer labs. Outdoor playgrounds will also be available, along with a big sprinkler and a slip 'n slide for summer days. At SCAMP, education meets recreation and fun for a comprehensive camp experience.
SCAMP 2018: STEAM
This year, SCAMP is offering a special STEAM program: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. All campers will learn how to code Codapillar and Dash and Dot, and do LEGO robotics. Students will also use other cool programs and apps to complete various challenges and programs.
The older campers (ages 6 to 8) will be in the STEAM room every day; younger campers (3 to 5) will be there several times per week.
A Camp for Working Parents
Kids might have summers off, but most parents don't! SCAMP is designed to work around the working parent's schedule. The day begins at 7:30am with some stories and reading time to kick the morning off, so parents are able to drop off the little ones before heading into work. The summer camp program really starts rolling at 9am and goes until 3pm, with activities continuing until 5:30pm, so parents have time to complete their work day before picking the kids up.
