South Orangetown Central School District

Summer STEAM Camp

Summer STEAM Camp provides 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.


DATES: Monday, July 1 – Friday, July 12, 2024 (no camp Thursday, July 4)
HOURS: 8:50AM-12:15PM

CONTACT: Elizabeth Apicella and Samantha Levine, STEAM Camp Coordinators

  • Open to current South Orangetown public school students (grades K-8)
  • Programs are led by SOCSD teachers
  • No cost for families to participate

At Summer STEAM Camp, students dive deeper into science, technology, engineering art and math topics that they would not typically cover during the school year through high-interest, hands-on projects.

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 two 90-minute 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.

Camper Registration & Selection
As in the past, we will be filling spots through a lottery system should we get more applicants than spaces we can fill. Therefore, before you apply, PLEASE make sure that your child(ren) can commit to ALL nine (9) days of camp.
