Summer STEAM Camps at Saint Francis University
Kids' College 2023
Kids’ College at Saint Francis University is a summer camps program designed for school children entering grades 1 through 10. These two to five day camps introduce children to various STEAM topics, such as astronomy, biology, chemistry, engineering, medicine, physics, language, arts and more. In each camp, children become scientists who critically observe the surrounding environment, pose scientific questions, conduct experiments, collect and analyze data, and draw their own conclusions. Each camp includes daily (weather permitting) outside activities: field trips, short hikes, games, and physical exercises.
