Camp Shai Stem Camp

STEM Specialty Camps 

Rockets, Animals, Woodworking. JCC Camp Shai’s STEM Specialty Camps are a great way to explore interests and develop skills. Shai STEM camps offer two hours of specialized instruction each day facilitated by trusted community partners and supported by our counselors. When campers are not in part of their day, we flip gears into full camp-mode with free swim, games, camp activities, and more! Project- and skill-based instruction in our camp setting will spark campers’ curiosity and sharpen their skills. Our goal for Shai STEM campers is to engage them in hands-on, educational projects. Studies show that engaging in summer enrichment-style programs increases academic engagement and performance during the school year. Who says science and engineering can’t be educational AND fun!

Campers will be broken into two groups: Grades K – 1 and Grades 2 – 5.
