Chucktown Squash and Engaging creative minds Summer Steam institute- June 15th-july 24th

What’s your child doing this summer?  While there are hundreds of summer camps set to take place in the coming months across the country and the options can be overwhelming, we are lucky to live in a community that embraces unique and fun youth development programs.  Chucktown Squash and Engaging Creative Minds are partnering and excited to launch a brand new summer initiative targeting 3rd-8th graders in the tri-county area. 

The six-week Summer STEAM Institute, to be held at the College of Charleston, from June 15 through July 24, was conceptualized to assist students in learning standards-based curriculum while working alongside local artists, scientists, technology and math professionals, engaging in unique athletic and physical contests, and traveling across the tri-county region on weekly field trips.  The Summer STEAM Institute is limited to 100 participants, and each group has no more than five students for a more personalized experience.  Participants have the opportunity to register for a week or multiple weeks of the Summer STEAM Institute. 

This innovative initiative is already receiving national attention.  While this summer camp experience is designed for the participants to have so much fun, they won’t know that they are learning, this program will also serve as a teacher-training institute that prepares current educators to infuse arts into the curriculum, and assist in the prevention of summer learning-loss and aid in the development of youth through the academic and athletic components.
