Throughout the week, campers will conduct a variety of patriotic experiments including the creation of artwork by manipulating the molecules of color in markers! This fun-filled camp is certain to strike the curiosity of every little (and silly) scientist.

The Cat in the Hat…or is it? SQ Mini campers will join together to help us find the Cat in the Hat who enjoys hiding around camp. You and your fellow detectives will help campers examine the riddles left by the Cat in the Hat in order to find him. You would think it would be easy to find a 6 foot cat in a large striped top hat, but trust us, he can be very elusive. Campers will make snog-waddles and ziberflows to coax the Cat out into the open. Enjoy a tasty snack while wearing your costume and many other epic story themed activities!

About StemQuest Minis

Led by experienced adults who work in education, girls and boys enjoy a safe, nurturing and fun summer camp environment. There will be no shortage of stories being shared when your son or daughter returns home each day from SQ Mini Camp! This program provides young boys and girls with stimulating and traditional weekly day camp themes, but adds a healthy offering of age-level and appropriate technology activities into each summer camp day.

Experiences should be as diverse as a child’s growing interests, therefore, SQ Mini Camp offers a variety of hands-on activities for curious young minds. Our variety of offerings sets the stage for exploration, activity, creativity, discovery, and innovation. Movement and experimentation are the building blocks for this young group of campers and StemQuest delivers with eye-opening activities to uncover talents and establish new friendships. Through a mix of art, music, crafts, technology, introductory science, and performing arts, SQ Mini Camp is unlike any other camp experience in the area. Our leadership team ensures a safe, experimental, nurturing and stimulating traditional camp environment with a new themed-session each week – encouraging campers to enroll in multiple weeks, if not for the entire summer.

Activities

StemQuest Minis will sleep well at night after a fun-filled, action-packed camp day! We believe there is a direct correlation between the movement of the body and an enhanced capacity for the developing mind to innovate and create. Therefore, there is no shortage of daily indoor and outdoor activities and play for all young campers attending SQ Mini Camp. 

Each day, all SQ Minis participate in a variety of play, from the enjoyment of traditional sports and games to StemQuest’s interactive playground that uses lights, sounds and video to transform our multi-purpose rooms and gyms into engaging, immersive video games. All activities and games are team-based and challenge campers to either beat the clock or even their own counselors!

Each StemQuest instructor who works with your son or daughter is fully vetted and has passed local and nationwide criminal background checks, in-depth reference checks, and a behavioral personality test – all to ensure that our company core values are upheld and our expectations are fully met each and every camp day.

Our Reviews

“All 3 of my girls appreciated the opportunity you provided them with last week. Jennifer (pre-k) now wants a rolling robot for Christmas, Julie (1st grader) said she wants an ExerGames birthday party (do you even do that?) and Billi (6th grader) told me last night she wants to become a space engineer because, as she told me, “we need more girls in space!” Incredible job. Thank you for inspiring my 3 girls. See you next summer.”

Lindsi V.

“As a single dad of two twins the school year becomes exhausting. When I heard you guys provide free lunch/snack and extended care I was ecstatic. I signed Bryan and Caleb up for your StemQuest program because I knew they would love it. Well, they not only loved it, but I LOVED IT too. No lunch making, no rushing to pick them up or drop them off. You have made my summer so much more simple with all you offer and I want to thank you for that. Thank you.”

Ed K.

“Am I able to sign up for your camp the rest of the summer? We are in our third week of your camp and my son told me last night that he will not go anywhere else this summer. I am working on canceling and getting a refund from the camps he was supposed to attend this summer. Do you still have space if I can do so? Hopefully, we will see you again after the July 4th break. This is his second year attending a summer camp and I truly never thought he would love it this much, so thank you.”
