Summer Camp at Berkwood Hedge School

STEAM CAMP ON THE HILL

Explore Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics at Berkwood Hedge School’s Summer Camp! Located in the beautiful Berkeley Hills, we offer a dynamic environment complete with playtime, aftercare, and athletics. Children will engage in indoor and outdoor activities including, tinkering, building, coding, robots, crafting, painting, and so much more! Campers will cultivate friendships, develop social and athletic skills, and collaborate on creative science projects. Is your child curious, creative, playful? Join us in this innovative Summer Camp.

Our summer program brings together art and design, engineering and computer science, and math to promote curiosity, discovery, and STEAM literacy. Campers learn how to solve problems as they explore the role engineering plays in their lives and the world around them. Through creative hands-on engineering adventures, students build 21st century skills as they practice critical thinking to work through challenges together. Campers will learn to collaborate, communicate, solve problems and present their findings in an Engineering Showcase. Campers will have an opportunity to do additional art projects and/or to participate in our athletic and field games program in the afternoons.
