Camp STEM was founded on the principle that students want exciting, challenging, and life impacting STEM experiences. The camp is committed to demonstrating how STEM works in the real world by providing hands-on activities in STEM (Science, Technology, Arts, Engineering, and Mathematics). Camp STEM is a teacher operated not for profit based out of  Murfreesboro, Tn. Camp STEM is pleased to create employment opportunities for teachers across the Southeastern United States each year.

Camp should be fun and educational. As astronomers, engineers, scientists, and teachers we believe that challenges and problems are the best learning opportunities, curiosity is a valuable asset worth cultivating, and creativity can be used everywhere. We learn through real-world tools, materials, and experiences. Our camps cultivate STEM understanding and the necessary teamwork, problem-solving, and inventiveness to grow our next generation of scientists and engineers.

What a fantastic year 2023 is proving to be! Camp STEM continues to grow with new locations and providing unique learning opportunities. Thanks to all our supporters who continue to make this happen.
