STEM III – Palisades
We take Science, Technology, Engineering and Math to the moon and beyond! Our campers launch rockets, design water filtration systems, dust for fingerprints, build roller coasters and robots, and create their own video games with Hopscotch. Each week of camp focuses on a specific topic, which campers explore through various projects and challenges, such as identifying inks and liquids left at a crime scene to find out whodunit in Forensics. All locations enjoy water play and indoor/outdoor games each day, and any experiments that can be done outside will be. After all, it is summer camp

LEGO Play-Well Master Engineering
Looking for an exploratory, hands-on STEM program based on building? This is it! Led by trained Play-Well instructors, campers will be guided through daily activities and challenges incorporating physics, engineering, and architecture based on the week’s theme. Each week incorporates a fun, imaginative world that kids already know. Play-Well engineering is about the process, not the result, which means this camp is a great place for kids to learn and discover through play.
Robotics with Dot, Dash and Sphero + Snap Circuits Light
Turn down the lights and the party starts with Snap Circuits Light™! This technicolor technology will keep campers wonder-filled with 175 projects and unlimited experimentation. Campers will be led through scaffolded circuitry projects involving strobe lights, spinners, LED fibers, propeller fans, music players, and even a glowing egg! But that’s not all – campers will also get coding and programming experience working with award-winning educational robots, Dot™, Dash™, and Sphero SPRK™! From robo-jousting to maze races, story-telling to music making, this week is a digital dream!
Ever had a million-dollar idea? Enjoy taking things apart to see how they work? Wish you could figure out a better or faster way to do something – get to school, pack lunch, or mow the lawn? Join us for this invention themed week. We’ll learn about famous innovators and the obstacles they had to overcome. Campers will plan the blueprint, build the prototype, and pitch inventions using littleBits™ award-winning technology. By incorporating kid-friendly electronic building blocks and circuitry, campers will bring their ideas to life in our digitalized world. It’s the best thing since sliced bread.
Welcome all that bubbles, fizzes, floats, and EXPLODES during this week of kitchen chemistry and foodie physics! Campers learn the science of combustion and reactions by devising delectable dishes and stirring up surprising snacks! Headfirst Summer Camps is the only place where edible eruption is the goal, not the #fail…don’t try these creative concoctions at home!
This camp includes a daily Water Play session. Water Play is a fun way for campers to cool off in the middle of the day. The water play activity will vary throughout the week, but will always be a fun and active way for campers to cool down from the summer heat.
