Welcome to Camp STEM’s “Frequently Asked Questions” section. Calling all young engineers, astronauts, explorers, makers, and problem solvers!
Below are questions and answers that we feel will help you when making a choice to enroll your children in one of our popular programs. If you have further questions, please call us at 615-415-7963.
Online registration is the ONLY method available for all STEM Camp locations. Maker camps inspire kids to embrace their inner maker, get their hands dirty, fix some things, break some things, and have a lot of fun doing it. Campers will love this dynamic camp experience in which campers will work together to investigate, invent, design and build in this project-based program. Campers will go on weekly science related field trips to enhance the STEM camp curriculum such as visits to the science & discovery museum, engineering demos, coding, and much more! Students will participate in coding daily.
Why camp STEM?
Camp STEM provides offerings that are carefully designed to provide hands-on impact in influencing children’s attitude toward science, technology, art, engineering, and mathematics. We integrate science and math with many fun and inspiring activities. Our approach allows children to investigate a STEM project while learning the underlying scientific concepts that keep them engaged.
What sets us apart from other science technology, engineering, math camps? At Camp STEM, we consult with and utilize community partners who KNOW the subject matter that relates to our activities. Guests such as astronomers, doctors, scientists, engineers, computer experts and athletes visit camp STEM to work with students, share their knowledge and create a fun environment for project based learning based on real world experiences.

How can I foster positive STEM-related interactions between students and their families?
The STEM Activity App provides engaging, family-friendly activities in science, technology, engineering and math.This free app is designed to foster positive STEM-related interactions between students and their families. Ultimately, we believe this supportive family influence will increase student interest in STEM fields.
Camp STEM serves campers of all abilities, ages 5-12, grades K-6 with small group instruction in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. camp STEM gives campers the opportunity to progress at their own rate and develop long-lasting friendships that grow through participation and teamwork. Campers are divided into groups by age.
The activities and classes at camp STEM are designed to build self-esteem in STEAM, teach problem solving skills, and foster relationships with Astronomers’, Engineers, and Scientists’ to create together.
