In addition to our popular Engineering is for Everyone and Scientific photography fields, we have added Forensic Science, and S.T.E.M. is All Around Us.  S.T.E.M. Camps are open to campers who have completed grades 3 through 8 as of the school year ending.

    Science for ALL Campers!

    Science for All Campers All Sessions

    The ABJS – Outdoor Summer S.T.E.M Camp is proud to bring science and S.T.E.M. to all campers. Each camper will be offered at least one rotation of science each session that they are registered for camp. Science for ALL is part of the ABJS Community S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Education Initiative.)

    We are offering the following classes:

  • Engineering is for Everyone ·
  •  Photography · 
  • Forensic Science Camp · 
  • Math · 
  • Robotics

    Engineering is for Everyone

    Have you ever wondered how the Desert Spray Wind Turbine works, how engineers design bridges, or how submarines work? Are you interested in being in the next generation of creators and inventors? Engineering campers will investigate with highly engaging hands-on challenges such as windmills, bridges, and submersibles. These and many other S.T.E.M. related investigations will be taught in our S.T.E.M. Education Classroom at ABJS Desert Spray Wind Turbine. Campers will also take a local field trip. Be a part of ABJ’s Young Engineers and become part of the ABJS – Outdoor Summer S.T.E.M Camp!

    Photography

    Have you ever thought about the 66 acres of the ABJS – Outdoor Summer S.T.E.M. Camp as an outdoor science classroom? During this exciting adventure, we will explore nature and become amateur photographers. Each day campers will hike the Mountain Mist property noting interesting insects, trees, plants, and wildlife while keeping a digital record of their discoveries.

    During all of these experiences, instruction will be given by experienced science educators on how to use simple science equipment and most importantly digital cameras. Join us and become a member of the ABJS – Outdoor Summer S.T.E.M Camp. This camp will run during Session 2, July 15th through July 22nd, 2017. Cameras are available in the camp. Campers do not need to bring theirs.

    Session 2: July 15th through July 24nd, 2017 Lead Camp Counselor:  (will be announced), ABJS Teacher and STEM Educator Full Member: $400 Program Member: $450

    Forensic Science Camp
    Forensic science will give participants an opportunity to gain hands-on experience with “CSI” style techniques, including fingerprint, DNA sample testing, and crime scene processing. Students will be taught to develop observation, problem-solving, communication, and critical thinking and collaboration skills. Campers will also take local field trips to a museum.

    Session 3: July 25th – August 02nd, 2017  Lead Camp Counselor: (will be announced), ABJS Teacher and S.T.E.M. Educator Full Member: $400 Program Member: $450

    S.T.E.M. Is within our Daily Surroundings!
    Through hands-on investigations, campers will experience a variety of S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) concepts. Campers can expect to create take-home projects, launch a rocket, and nature is hiking our beautiful High Deserts Mountains. Campers will develop observation, communication and collaboration skills. Campers will also take a local field trip to a museum.

    Session 4:  (combined Section 3-4 classes) July 25th – August 02nd, 2017 Lead Camp Counselors: (will be announced), ABJS Teacher and S.T.E.M. Educator Full Member: $400 Program Member: $450
