 Based on NAEYC's "Making and Tinkering with STEM"
The Hopkins House Summer Discovery Camp is designed to help children who are transitioning to kindergarten in the fall, explore and understand the world around them through fun learning activities in basic science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts.
Exposing children to STEM concepts and digital technologies during the summer prepares them for success in elementary school in the fall and achievement in later life through acquisition of important skills like:
     * Independent Thinking
          * Inquiry and Discovery
               * Understanding Rules
                    * Following Routines
                         * Multiple Intelligences
The camp is divided into two 6-week sessions and includes fun-filled daily learning activities and weekly trips to the airport, aquarium, museums, and parks.  Each session culminates with a science fair hosted by the campers to share what they learned with their family and friends.

Through a summer of fun and enriching activities, the campers are encouraged to tap into their innate sense of wonder and curiosity, and to build upon their natural inclination to question, explore, and create. Daily structured learning takes place in the mornings, followed by afternoons of engaging games, puzzles, and reading tailored to the needs and desires of the individual campers. 

Campers work on individual and group projects, learning from themselves and their peers. Breakfast and afternoon snack is provided.  This will be an exciting summer that will prepare them amply for kindergarten success.
