STEM Camp at Notre Dame
We inspire elementary school children to discover how exciting science can be!
July 8 to 12
8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Studies show that students begin to lose interest in the sciences during the middle to late years of elementary school. Notre Dame’s STEM summer camp is designed to help students maintain and expand their budding interests in science, technology, engineering and math.
Each day, campers will be introduced to a new STEM concept focused on the Chesapeake Bay and will participate in hands-on learning. But it’s not all science—there is also time for swimming, team building, crafts and lunch!
A Day in the Life of a Camper
The Chesapeake Bay is Maryland’s jewel, a unique and vibrant ecosystem rich in history and natural beauty. Campers will experience the Bay through five full days of STEM activities focused on biology, engineering, technology, mathematics and sustainability. Each day will focus on a specific content area and will tie into the overall theme of “Our Chesapeake Bay.”
A typical day in the life of our campers might look like this:
|10:45-11:45||Engineering Activity Continues|
|12:00-1:00||Lunch and Free Play|
|1:00-3:00||Conclusion of Engineering Activity|
|3:00-3:30||Outreach with Maryland Science Center|
|3:30-4:00||Arts and Crafts|
Campers are placed in small groups across grade levels with a lead counselor who works with the group throughout the week. Counselors are pre-service teachers enrolled in a School of Education degree program at Notre Dame of Maryland University.
Time and place: STEM camp is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Camp activities end at 3 p.m. to allow time for swimming, crafts and other activities.
Food: Snacks and lunch will be provided for campers throughout the week. Please send a reusable water bottle with your camper each day.
Clothing: Campers should wear comfortable clothing and footwear suitable for walking, running and playing games. A bathing suit and towel are necessary if campers wish to participate in water activities. Certified lifeguards and staff will be present at the pool.
