Notifications regarding Summer STEAM Camp application status were emailed to families on Wednesday, May 10. All campers must commit to attending the entire eight-day session. If your child was selected or placed on the waitlist and is no longer able to attend all eight days of Summer STEAM Camp, please contact coordinators Samantha Levine ([email protected]) and Jessenia Cursio ([email protected]) as soon as possible so that another student may have the opportunity to attend the full session.
More than 450 students in grades K-8 applied for Summer STEAM Camp this year which, unfortunately, exceeds even our expanded capacity. Since Summer STEAM Camp is partially funded with Title I funds, students eligible for free and reduced lunch and English Language Learners received priority enrollment. Children of teachers who reside in the district and are working at STEAM Camp were also admitted.* A random number generator was used to select campers from the pool to fill the remaining seats. When a camper was randomly selected, siblings of that camper were also given a seat. Once all seats had been filled, the same random selection process was used to form a 20-seat wait-list.
*The decision was made to admit children of teachers who reside in-district and are working at STEAM Camp in order to maximize the total number of campers that could be enrolled. Each teacher who works at Summer STEAM Camp creates 15 spots for campers.
