Summer Camp schedules have been released! 

Our children’s programs are founded on experiential learning and national STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) standards. At the SDC we take STEM a step further and make it STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, ART and Mathematics) because we believe that you need to include the creative element for a comprehensive educational experience. We tap into your child’s curiosity with fun and exciting hands-on activities taught by qualified professionals.

SDC Summer Camp 2023

May 30-June 2
Color Me Summertime

Spectacular Science

Ewwwww!  Yuck!  What’s that smell?  There’s no better place to experiment with different substances than the SDC lab.  Learn about chemistry and biology, with hands-on instruction.  You will have the opportunity to make your very own slime.


June 12-16
Potions & Potterology

Join us for a week full of fairy tales and magic spells.  Collect your wand and broom to begin exploration and participate in the dual of wizards and witches. Our pre-k campers will explore storytelling and magic potions.  Older campers will learn about herbology and wizardry.




June 19-23
Maker’s Space & Building

This week we will encourage natural creativity in tinkering and building. Join in to create like projects or design your own. We will focus on STEAM activities using techniques such as carpentry, circuitry, weaving, and more to make useful and unique items. Choose your own way to construct and create. Maker’s Space will foster learning and support mental rigor.

June 26-30
Critter Connection

This week we will explore critters of various types. We will spend time learning about amphibians and reptiles, while getting an up-close and personal visit from our on-campus friends. Campers will learn about animals as well as interact with them.  We will introduce visitors from a local farm, with some one-on-one time with those visitors.



July 10-14
Backyard Bugs & Nature

Learn about bugs in your own backyard and explore what green is growing. Approximately 80% of animal species on Earth are bugs.  We will learn how insects provide natural services for us that we take for granted.  They are pollinators, undertakers, decomposers, garbage collectors, and natural fertilizers of our planet. Learn about trees, twigs, stumps, greenery and all that nature offers and the importance of their role in our ecosystem. 

July 17-21
Sea, Sand & Sun

We will explore sand and shells from our beautiful beaches and learn about water flow and sea life. Additionally, we will embark on legends of pirates and mermaids and search for the hidden treasure.    



July 24-28
Hometown Heroes

All heroes don’t wear capes! We will take the opportunity to learn about the importance of emergency personnel. With visits from many agencies, we will study specifics about the law, what constitutes an emergency call, how to escape a burning building and safety in our waters.
