It’s time to register for Summer Science Camp at Carriage Barn Academy! Now that Lackawanna County is expected to move to the “yellow phase” on June 5th, we are able to make plans for Summer Science Camp in July. (If for some reason we have to move back to the “red phase,” families will receive a refund.) We will be following the CDC Guidelines so that our students and their families stay healthy and safe.  Some of these include limiting our class size, daily temperature checks, social distancing, frequent hand washing, hand sanitizing, and disinfecting as much as possible. 

We are planning 8 different themed science camps that will run from July 6-31. There are morning sessions from 9AM-12PM and afternoon sessions from 1-4PM.  Kids are welcome to stay for lunch if they are attending both AM and PM camps in the same week.  Session Options include:  Daring Detectives, Shark Week, Superheroes and Super Kids, Imagine That!, Seriously STEM, Creepy (but Cute) Crawly Critters, Sticks & Stones, and Art (& Science) at the Academy.  

Kids will discover the fun in science through various hands-on, educational, thematic activities, including edible science snacks, exciting experiments, and interactive experiences that will spark their interest and curiosity. They also have music with Dan, Dan, the Music Man every Friday.  We plan to include some academic learning and review of basics since students in PA weren't able to be in school for the last few months of school.  It will be fun so they won't even realize that they are learning!

‍Each program is $150 per child and it includes a light, edible science snack and materials for all experiments, activities, and experiences.  Since we are limiting the class size as the CDC Guidelines suggest, we encourage you to register soon to guarantee your child's spot in each camp. As you register you will receive a confirmation email and then you will receive more details as we get closer to camp sessions.
