Summer STEAM Camp

Registration is now open for the Westwood Regional School District’s Summer STEAM Camp for students entering Grades K-7 in September 2016. Located at Brookside Elementary School, Westwood, the program runs from July 5th through July 29st. Enrichment offerings include such classes as “Amazing Arty Facts,” “Animation Adventures,” “Move & Groove”, “Mindfulness”, and “Introduction to Coding”. In addition, students can enrich their literacy and mathematics skills with “Phonics Fun”, “Wonderful World of Writers”, and “Space Maniacs”. Classes are also available for incoming Kindergarten students to enrich their learning before Kindergarten begins. Children do not need to be a student in a WWRSD school to enroll in this affordable summer program.
