We are excited to offer so many amazing options for Virtual Summer Camp.
The last few months have been crazy, and we have seen education take a path that no one could have predicted. To many of you we are old friends, and to some we are new friends, so we understand the anxiety you may be feeling about sending your child to summer camp. We have had many discussions about how to best serve our community, as well as what camp this year will look like, and we feel that a virtual camp is the best option. This allows for camp to still be something that is safe AND fun, while encouraging creative thinking and imagination along with learning. This is why we are going fully VIRTUAL this year for iCreate STEM Camp 2020!
