Summer STEAM Camp
SOCSD launched its Summer STEAM Camp in July 2016 to provide enrichment programming for South Orangetown students in grades K-8. The annual, two-week, half-day summer program is led by school district faculty who develop exciting, hands-on projects in a variety of subject areas to engage campers in a fun, exploration-oriented environment.

We are very excited to continue to offer Summer STEAM Camp to our students currently in grades K-8. The camp will run two weeks and will take place Tuesday, June 27 – Friday, July 7 (no camp on July 4). Camp will run from 8:50AM-12:15PM.
The core values of STEAM camp are to give students opportunities to dive deeper into STEAM topics that they would normally not get to during the school year. The topics extend from the school curriculum and reach beyond those projects we are capable of doing in larger groups. Therefore we will continue to maintain small class sizes.
Students currently in grades K-5 will have three one-hour classes on three different topics each day. They will take the same topics for the first week. In week two, they will switch classes and have 3 new classes each day. Students currently in grades 6-8 will have 2 hour and a half classes each day for the first week, then take two different classes the following week. All of these classes will range from art, to physics, to engineering, to robotics
