Prospect Sierra is pleased to host several sessions of camp on our campuses this summer! Beginning with our colab camps, your rising 2nd-6th grader can choose two weeks of camp with our amazing Prospect Sierra faculty. Colab camp leaders include Kathleen Arada, Charlotte Gjedsted, Melody Esquer-Gil, and David Gould. Each week has a unique theme, and tons of amazing tech, making, design, and science activities. Campers will be in small rotating groups so they can work with each of our camp leaders throughout the day.
Colab is a space where technology and making meet design thinking and student initiative. Colab spaces at both of our campuses provide students a huge range of tools and mentorship in project-based classes as well as electives and free tinkering time. This year’s camps take place at the Tapscott campus, and students will have the full use of all the colab tools and experiences — from coding to silk screening, 3d printing, minecraft world creation, laser cutting, and more.
Week 1: July 17-21
