Tenacre Day Camp

0

The foundation of Tenacre Day Camp’s success is the quality of the staff, a supportive and nurturing atmosphere, and a welcoming environment where each child belongs. The administration and staff strive to make every child feel comfortable and safe in a fun camp experience. Founded in 1973, the camp’s noncompetitive philosophy fosters self-esteem and individual accomplishments. Tenacre offers four two-week sessions for boys and girls ages 3 to 12. In addition to quality day camp for children ages 3-12, Tenacre also offers a variety of other ways for children to be enriched, such as June and August Rising Star Sports and one-week specialty programs. Camp staff is caring, enthusiastic, qualified, encouraging, nurturing, and attentive to each child. The Activity Specialists are college graduates, and most are teaching professionals who have been with Tenacre for many summers.

The Advent School Engineering & Design - Camp

The Advent School offers engineering and design programs during the summer, Saturdays, and February and April vacation weeks. The programs use children’s natural instinct for problem solving as the foundation for exploration. Students sketch ideas, experiment with materials, and build prototypes. Each session is led by certified teachers. Designers also meet artisans, musicians, engineers, architects, and scientists.

Designers are divided into three groups based on age:

  • Junior Designers (ages 5-6)
  • Senior Designers (ages 7-9)
  • Design Leaders (ages 10-12).

Advent's summer program runs for 3 two-week sessions plus a one-week partner program. Themes include Radical Inventors, Wild Designs, From Here to There, and Design and Climb at Brooklyn Boulders. Visit the website for a schedule and more information.

The Innovation Institute

0

Described by an MIT faculty member as "bold and unapologetically challenging," The Innovation Institute (Ti2) is an inspiring science and engineering enrichment program targeting motivated children ages 5-17. Ti2 offers homeschool, after-school, weekend, and vacation STEM programs. Courses range from robotics to genomics, computer programming to biochemistry, material sciences to physics.

Young people value deep knowledge and mutual respect. Ti2's inquiry-based teaching is facilitated by accomplished yet relatable role models and mentors. Students learn alongside scientists, engineers, and educators.

A nine-year old declared after her nanotech lab, “Dr. Boshra is the real deal. She is a scientist.” Parents agree. A dad wrote, "There’s a big difference between teaching a kid about science and helping a kid become a scientist...Ti2 has helped my son develop an understanding of the scientific world today and of himself as a budding scientist with a place in it."
