Natick Camps | Metrowest YMCA | MetroWest YMCA

Y STEM Academy, Natick

At Y STEM, children participate in hands-on inquiry based activities that will allow them to explore their world, create new things, all while having fun and making new friends at summer camp. 
 
Who: Children entering grades 1-5 who enjoy hands on activities, wonder how the world works, and are excited in   engineering, experimenting, and creating new things.
 
What: A Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) camp with traditional summer activities woven in throughout the day. Each week, children will participate in themed enrichment activities. They will use the engineering design process to ask, imagine, plan, create, and improve when it comes to challenges of the week.
 
Where: East School, 90 Oak Street, Natick 01760
 
When: One week sessions June 24-August 23. Monday-Friday 9:00am-4:00pm with drop off from            8:30am- 9:00am and pick-up from 4:00pm-4:30pm. 
Before & After Care 7:30-8:30am & 4:30-6:00pm
 
Why: STEM is active, collaborative, meaningful, and teaches the life skill of problem solving for all children.             By focusing on hands-on STEM curriculum, Y-STEM will allow for in-depth exploration that is youth-driven and staff guided in a way that cannot be achieved in a traditional camp setting. This program will allow children to make a      connection between activities they enjoy and professions in the ever growing STEM field, all while building on 21st Century skills. Every week is unique and offers a plethora of challenges and opportunities for your child.
