A Summer of STEAM Discovery

STEAM Camp at the Cathedral School of St. John the Divine welcomes rising Kindergarten to Grade 6 students. Campers are immersed in hands-on projects focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. Our STEAM Camp sparks creativity, inspires collaboration, promotes critical thinking and perseverance through maker-centered learning. 
 
The STEAM Camp is structured in two-week sessions, each capturing one overarching theme. Campers visit the Innovation Lab daily where they are encouraged to explore their curiosities through designing, prototyping, and testing new ideas. They are challenged to expand their imagination and take risks under the guidance of a senior classroom teacher and Cathedral alumni counselors. 
 
Campers also participate in various outdoor activities, including the very popular Aqua Zone, led by our Athletic Department on our 13-acre campus. From coding robots to summertime maker fairs, our campers’ days are filled with fun!

    Parents should provide lunch for their children each day. Students will have lunch in their classrooms or outside on the Cathedral campus. Please include nut-free food items to ensure the safety of every camper. We appreciate your consideration for students with severe allergies. 

    Children will be instructed to not trade or share food items as packaging and labeling can vary from bag to bag. This includes candies, snacks, granola bars, trail mixes, and many other seemingly innocuous food items. We appreciate efforts made to ensure the safety of all students.
