Get Into It: Youth Summer Camps in Boston and Cambridge

| Aimee Sprung


As I drop my children off for their first days of summer camp this week, I find myself envious of the amazing programs students have access to today.  In particular, I love seeing the variety of STEM and computer science programs that are available in the summer.

If you are still looking for summer activities, check out the full list of summer programs compiled by the Mass TLC Education Foundation.

Here are a few highlights I picked from the list:

  • Museum of Science. One week courses on a wide variety of topics from Rockets to Bugs to Xbox Game Creation.
  • Summer Camps at your local Microsoft Retail Store! Registration is open for free weekly in-store camps. Camps are broken up into two age groups for Jr. Designers (recommended for ages 8-10) and Designers (recommended for ages 11-13), so choose the camp that fits your student’s interest and sign up today.
  • Summer Pathways at Boston University.  Summer Pathways is your chance to discover the range of opportunities in science and engineering, and to meet the real women working in these fields today.

If you know of other programs we can add to this list, please email Rachel Nicoll [email protected].

To keep up with Aimee you need to be up early. Like 5 AM early. Then you have to squeeze in Crossfit, grow STEM education programs, collaborate with community leaders and still keep up with her family - 2 boys require high energy. Or you can hit the snooze and sleep soundly knowing Aimee has that all covered.
