The Acera Summer STEAM Camp is a creativity-based arts and sciences day camp where children can nurture their natural desire to inquire, create, and innovate. Our STEAM Summer Camp is designed to challenge students of all ages and learning styles.
With 161 offerings, children can take part in a different engaging activity every day!
Our STEAM camp will run from June 11 to August 24, 2018. (NOTE: No camp during the week of July 4th.)

With emphasis on critical thought, creative problem solving, and integration of content areas, Acera’s
diverse program offerings inspire all types of learners and thinkers.
Our staff consists of professionals with significant experience in the classroom and in their own fields of expertise. Among them are award winners, active research scientists, and working artists. We believe in offering high caliber, authentic, engaging instruction, as much during the summer as during our school year program.
Participants should expect to tackle difficult, enticing problems, individually and in groups. They should anticipate taking the time to incorporate new techniques as they create unique works of art or design experimental protocols or novel engineering solutions.
Where else can 5-year- olds learn early woodworking skills, including how to work with hammers, nails, saws?
Where else can you build a raft from scratch in a week, and race it on the Upper Mystic River? Or design and run your own synthetic biology experiments in a lab with a real Boston biotech scientist?
And where else do experienced, lead classroom teachers stick around after the end of school to teach engaging, high-quality, STEAM-rich summer camp sessions? #OnlyAtAcera
