Heart Prints Center Summer Camp Combines Fun Themes With S.T.E.A.M Education

 From fairy-tales, to dinosaurs, outer space and more, Heart Prints Center Summer Camps allow children to explore some of their favorite things. And because Heart Prints combines fun themes with S.T.E.A.M. education, camp also is jam-packed with learning. 

The foundation of the Heart Prints camp curriculum is S.T.E.A.M. — Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics. To offer a true S.T.E.A.M. program, multiple disciplines must be integrated within an activity, said Heart Prints Assistant Director Julie Byrnes. Children explore, experiment and create in every single Heart Prints camp. Literacy is also part of the program. 

“At Heart Prints, we believe that children learn much from following their own interests and natural curiosity,” Ms. Byrnes said. “Our teachers are skilled in supporting their explorations and utilizing children’s interests to introduce them to science, math, artistic expression and more.” 

Take S.T.E.A.M Fairytales Camp, where boys and girls will be introduced to basic engineering concepts alongside fun activities around princesses, knights in shining armor and castles. Campers will be challenged to select building materials and construct their own castles, with experimentation and self-expression encouraged. 

Heart Prints also always makes time for kids’ most important work, which is play, Ms. Byrnes added. Free play time and outdoor exercise on the playground and gardens are scheduled daily at camp. On rainy days, children engage in active games indoors. 

“The best camp experience takes into account the whole child, and that’s what we are committed to doing,” Ms. Byrnes said.
