Sustainability STEAM Camp

Think and Make Sustainably this Spring Break!

Learn and implement basic principles of Sustainability. 

The Sustainability STEAM spring camp is a program aimed at helping youth understand what it means to be sustainable through fun, interactive STEAM activities based around different areas of sustainability, such as: Recycling & Waste segregation, food & agriculture, energy and water.

The camp is broken down into 10 days over the course of two weeks, each based around these themes. Every week ends with a field trip that allows participants to address all the issues and solutions they’ve learned throughout that week.
