What do your children or grandchildren want to be when they grow up? Could it be a scientist, doctor, or engineer? What about a farmer or video game designer? Maybe they want to work with animals? Or would they rather play with computers? Attending STEM Camp might help them decide. And, they’ll have fun along the way!

What's STEM? It stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. But, this camp won't feel the least bit like school. Campers will select a STEM area to explore in-depth. Choices include Aeronautics, Robotics, Environmental Science, Animal Science, Forensic Science, or Engineering. Campers will enjoy many hands-on activities and learn about careers in the field. 

Boys and girls currently in 5th through 7th grades from across Ohio are invited to attend STEM Camp at Canter's Cave this summer. The camp is being planned and implemented by OSU Extension professionals from multiple counties. Both 4-H and non-4-H youth are invited to attend.

Camp registration is at 2pm on Thursday, June 4th , and end with dismissal at 10:30am on Saturday, June 6th. It will be held at the Elizabeth L. Evans Outdoor Education Center/Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp in Jackson, Ohio. The camp is an ideal setting for such a program, offering an abundance of natural resources and traditional camp activities. During the three-day, two night camp, campers will experience special workshops focused on STEM and some traditional camp activities with a STEM twist.
