For more than 60 years, Staten Island Academy has been bringing innovation, creativity and professionalism to summer camp! Summer Camp 2016 will continue this tradition by expanding into new areas and introducing new activities – all of which we hope will become new traditions! We were the first camp on Staten Island to offer a gifted and talented program, and this year TAGcamp returns with challenging programs, fresh ideas and new inspiration for campers. Last year, we introduced Engineering using LEGO and it was a huge hit! Each day, the smiles on campers’ faces broadened when they heard about the day’s projects.
This year, we’re introducing Makerspace Camp! You’ve probably heard about makerspaces – the movement that’s inspiring people of all ages to MAKE! Makerspace encourages “makers” to use their hands and their brains as well as their imaginations and their knowledge to overcome challenges, struggle through problems and innovate solutions. Campers will apply STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) techniques to create, and we can’t wait to see what our campers come up with!
Staten Island Academy Day Camp continues to be the camp that has something for everyone. From the athlete to the artist, there is a program here that will keep your kids busy, happy and looking forward to the next day, every day! Also new this year, we’ve added Camp’s Got Talent, Camp Trivia Contest, Super Heroes Day (honoring our local law enforcement agencies) and a day to celebrate the “great-American pastime”! Plus, this year our, Super Senior program is being extended to include campers entering Grade 9. We’re all about options. If your ninth grader is ready to take on responsibility and hone their leadership skills, then our CIT program is for them. Or choose both, start with a few weeks of Super Seniors and end with a CIT session. Either way, it’s sure to be a summer of having a blast with friends!
Join us at an Open House to learn more about what’s changed, what’s new and how your child can learn, grow and smile all summer long with us!
