About 2023 Clarkston STEAM-Plus Summer Camp
The Clarkston STEAM-Plus Summer Camp will be a 7-week in-person experience. Not only will campers gain exposure to a variety of ideas and concepts, campers will be enhancing their lives academically, mentally, socially and culturally.
This summer we will be offering campers a variety of STEAM courses that will impact them personally and professionally.
Our classes include, but are not limited to, the following: Videography/Photography, Financial Literacy, Art, Biology, English/Language Arts, and Physical Activity. Weekly fees are $75 per child & can be paid beforehand or each Monday of the week.
Courses Offered During Summer Camp
We offer courses that cater holistically to our campers. These courses are structured to teach to the grade levels of our campers.
Photography/Videography: Photography and Videography hold such important roles in our lives. They can be mediums of expression, educational, entertaining, artistic and more.
Students at the CCC STEAM + Summer Camp will receive weekly classes on these topics to encourage their own personal expression in these forms.
Financial Literacy & Entrepreneurship: One day, our campers will become young adults and our goal is to ensure that they’re taught how to manage their finances and make wise decisions. Campers will learn how to budget, financial literacy as it relates to college, and will be introduced to the world of entrepreneurship. Campers will be encouraged to come up with ideas for their own businesses and what steps to take toward accomplishing this goal.
Physical & Nutritional Health: It is important for kids to establish healthy habits while they are young. Campers will engage in physical activities and will be taught the importance of selecting nutritional and healthy snacks.
Cultural Diversity & Inclusion: DeKalb County is becoming more diverse daily. Our summer camp is a representation of that diversity. Campers will learn about different cultures and their similarities. The exposure to different perspectives and practices will promote appreciation and to value of our cultural differences.
Mental Health & Social Skills: Kids and teens are faced with many decisions, identity issues and peer pressure at an early age. Courses will be designed to discuss these new changes that many campers may be going through as well as provide an open space for dialogue.
Science, English & Writing, Art and Math: Curriculum for these subjects will be centered around the grade level of the students in preparation for the following tests: GA Milestones, ACT/SAT, MAP Testing, Access/WIDA testing.
