Summer is just around the corner, and many parents are looking for fun and enriching activities for their kids. If you’re a parent looking for something that will not only keep your child engaged but also unlock his or her future potential, here are some key points you should consider before choosing a Summer STEM Camp for your child this summer.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, and it encompasses a wide range of fields and skills that are critical to success in the 21st century. STEM education is becoming increasingly important as technology advances and the job market shifts towards more STEM-based careers. By enrolling your child in a summer STEM camp, you can give them a head start on developing the skills they will need to thrive in the future.
What are the benefits of Summer STEM Camps?
Summer STEM camps provide numerous benefits for children of all ages. Here are just a few:
Hands-on learning opportunities: STEM education is all about learning through doing. Summer STEM camps provide children with the chance to work on real-world projects, conduct experiments, and solve problems in a hands-on and interactive environment.
Boosting critical thinking and problem-solving skills: STEM education done correctly requires children to think critically and solve complex problems. By participating in a summer STEM camp, children can develop their analytical and problem-solving skills, which will be valuable in all aspects of their lives.
Teamwork and communication skills: STEM projects often require teamwork and collaboration. By working with other children in a summer STEM camp, children will learn how to communicate effectively, work as part of a team, and build leadership skills.
Inspires creativity and innovation: STEM education encourages children to be creative and innovative. By participating in a summer STEM camp, children will be exposed to new ideas and technologies that will inspire their curiosity and creativity.
How to Choose the Right Summer STEM Camp for Your Child?
Choosing the right summer STEM camp for your child can be a daunting task. Here are some factors to consider when making your decision:
Consider your child’s interests: Does your child have a particular interest in science, technology, engineering, or math? Look for a summer STEM camp that aligns with their interests and passions. Are they into tech, hands-on activities, roller coasters, legos, robots, making games, etc? Are arts and design involved in some ways?
Age range and skill level: Make sure the camp is appropriate for your child’s age and skill level. Some camps are geared towards younger children, while others are more advanced and/or cater to older children with a higher level of knowledge and experience.
Safety and supervision: Ensure that the camp has proper safety measures in place and that there are qualified instructors and counselors supervising the children. Look for camps that have good/great ratings by the public, are accredited, or have a good safety record.
Location and transportation: Consider the camp’s location and whether transportation is provided or if you’ll need to arrange for transportation yourself. Make sure the camp’s location is convenient for you and your child.
Summer STEM camps are a fantastic option for parents looking to provide their children with an engaging and educational summer experience. Explore hands-on learning opportunities, build critical thinking and problem-solving skills, encourage teamwork and communication, and inspire creativity and innovation.

There’s a camp to meet virtually need
There are a number of different summer camps available, some of which are all day and others are just half a day. Some are a week long and others are longer. The purpose of the curriculum at CodeREV Kids is certainly to teach your kids while ensuring they’re having a blast, but we also work hard to make sure that our spring and summer tech camps meet a wide variety of needs.
Check out an example daily schedule and you’ll see that there’s lots of fun to be had
The daily schedule for the particular camp your child signs up for will vary but today we wanted to share an example of a daily schedule. This will give you an idea of what you might expect.
9:00:Game activities and group check-in
9:15:First create period
10:30:Morning snack and an activity break
10:45:Second create period
1:00:Third create period
2:00:Meet and offer direction
2:45:Fourth create period
3:30:Afternoon snack and break
4:00:Pair up and share the work done
The specific activities that your child will take part in during the create periods will vary based on the type of camp they sign up for. Younger kids or those who don’t have a lot of tech experience may start with a camp that offers lots of direction. Older kids who are more experienced may work at their own pace on projects selected by them and supervised by our staff.
The bottom line is that it’s all up to you
Whether you choose to send your kid to us all day or just half a day, it’s up to you. What classes they sign up for and what they work on, it’s all up to you. We provide the expert guidance and award-winning curriculum but at end of the day – and the start of it – it’s really all about what will work best for your kid.
Do you want your kids to have a truly unique experience this summer? If so, CodeREV Kids has a great idea for you: Summer coding camps for kids. You may be surprised to learn just how fun and educational these classes are – after all, as a parent, you know how hard it can be to create a curriculum that’s both! Read on to learn more and then reach out to us with any questions.
Your kids can learn STEM skills over the summer break
One of the biggest complains teachers often have is that kids forget a lot of what they learned during the school year when they’re off for summer break. That’s why it’s important to make sure that you’re intellectually challenging your kids over break too. Our weeklong tech camps are perfect for kids who want to design video games, learn about robots, create 3D models, animate – or just learn more about technology.
Our staff knows what they’re doing
When we hire staff, we go through an incredible rigorous process – and the same is true of our training process. Every Mentor we hire has at least two years of experience teaching tech to kids – and some have over a decade of experience doing so. We also require at least one year of professional experience within the tech sector.
We have Mentors who have worked at big companies like Google, EA, Sony, and many other companies. This isn’t just a summer job for them – it’s a chance for them to share what they’ve learned in a way that’s really important to them. They take this job seriously – and they take it to heart.
Your kids will bring home what they make with us
Regardless of which of the CodeREV Kids classes you sign your kids up for, you can count on them being able to bring home everything they make, so they can keep working on it, show it to you, show it off to their friends – or do whatever they’d like with it! It all comes through on a Google Drive that you’ll have access to as well. Don’t worry, we’ll provide all the instructions necessary to download what’s needed to keep working on them. In the event you have trouble, just give us a call and we’ll help you with the process.
CodeREV Kids believes in every child and believes in the role of technology in building bright futures. We’d be honored to work with your child this summer. Call us today for more information.
