Learn the full process that the Simsbury Public Library used to create and facilitate their week long library STEM summer camps, from concept to completion. In July 2018, the Simsbury Library Children’s Department offered a half day STEM camp for kids entering 1st-3rd grade, and a full day STEM camp for girls entering 4th-6th grade. Both camps focused on experiential learning, exploration of new topics and careers, and building friendships and community connections. Participants will learn about a unique way to engage the community and combat the summer slide. With some dedicated time, planning, and the benefit our hard earned advice, you can offer a library camp too!
