The A-State Summer Camp Academy for 2019 is organized into categories. Camps are held the last 3 weeks in June and the last 3 weeks in July. We have camps for grade levels PK – 12th grade and that is for rising grade levels or the grade entering in the fall. We are thrilled to have a partnership with Suddenlink to provide the Suddenlink Summer STEM Camp in June and July! Our STEM camps are amazing because of our awesome instructors, our funders, and our themes and topics. We have a revamped Legos camp for 2 different age groups with a new focus, activities, and instructor. We have a partnership with the Department of Computer Science with Robotics and Robotics Instructors. Our Coding Camp this year is led by a Computer Science faculty who will use drones to teach programming and actual testing of drones in flight on the final day of camp within an indoor enclosed facility – indoors! And, we are so excited about the first time ever, Digital Game Design camp! We also have a Medical camp with the assistance of the NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine here on our campus. This year we have an Arts Academy including the visual arts, and the performing arts with choir and drama camps. The Bradbury Art Museum is offering amazing summer camps in June and July for different ages. And, we are using our Art Department students to assist in additional art camps. Our Department of Teacher Education students are leading and assisting with summer camps this year too. So many student assistants from a variety of majors across campus work to make the summer camp program successful. We have a new category of camps this year designed to meet student need and lead to greater and enhanced academic success. We are continuing the Camp Connections for children and youth identified as dyslexic or struggling readers using CONNECTIONS based on the Science of Reading. This year for the first time, we are using apps to help students improve note-taking skills. There are multiple two-day camps for different age groups starting with middle school grades and continuing through high school. This camp is designed to improve skills needed for success in college. And, can you believe our “sleep away” camp is in the category of Academic Success Strategies? Well, it is! The Camp Explore A-STATE is being repeated for 8th 9th and 10th grade students only! It is a two-night and three day camp. Learning about a college campus, a residence hall (dorm), finding one’s way around a campus, navigating a multi-level library, meeting with admissions counselors and attending a few different college classes at this age, helps student learn important terms and concepts such as majors and academic fields of study. The Camp Explore A-STATE creates an expectation and focus on the value of learning, good grades and academic success in middle school, jr. high, high school, and transitioning to college. And, we could never have summer camps without our Young Chef Camps for Grades PK – 12th grade! The cooking camps continue this year and we can’t wait! We also have sporting and gaming for hobby and pleasure, to complete a well-rounded camp schedule for the 2019 A-State Summer Camp Academy! Each year registration is improved as more and more of the process is electronic with fewer links and steps. This year the legal documents and the registration page are all located in one place with online payments and this makes everything so easy. Cash payments are also an option on campus at our Cashier’s Window. Directions for registration follow. Pricing has changed this year and that information is provided per camp and/or camp category. We can’t wait to see your children, grandchildren, and students this summer on the A-STATE campus!
