summer at the mount camp experiences include...

STEM

  • Mad Science: Science Madness is a camp that explores all areas of science taught at the Mount and is perfect for science lovers and curious kids to delve deeper! Campers will work together to use Chemistry, Anatomy, Physics, Forensics, and Environmental Science to explore the mysteries of life, and the magic and wonder that lives all around us.

  • Camp Innovate: In this exciting STEM-based robotics camp, each camper will work with a group of girls to solve breakout boxes, launch rockets, and design, build, and program a robot! This camp provides a glimpse into the Mount's award-winning robotics program, as it is entirely developed, designed, and directed by students on the MSJA Firebirds robotics team. It is an excellent way to participate in a variety of STEM activities. At Camp Innovate, we believe that when girls are given the opportunity to imagine, create and innovate, they can change the world.

THE ARTS

  • Camp Glee: If you have a passion for performance, don’t miss this opportunity to meet new friends while learning what it takes to be a star! Camp Glee is open to girls who will be enrolled in grades 5-9 during the upcoming school year. You can choose a half-day or full-day summer camp experience. Camp will run Monday-Friday for one week.

  • Visual Arts: Calling all budding artists! Visual Arts camp is an exploration of the fundamentals taught within the visual arts program at the Mount. Students will cover two-dimensional drawing, painting, and collage techniques and will create a range of artwork that sparks their curiosity and creativity, while building their skills and confidence.

  • Culinary Fundamentals: Calling all foodies! Join us for a fun culinary camp led by a professional chef! Campers will work alongside the Mount’s own Chef Jessica Borkosky to learn knife skills and life skills. In hands-on culinary classes and approachable and achievable (and delicious) recipes, campers will master knife skills, explore global cuisines, learn cooking techniques, and have fun! Chef Jessica will also cover nutrition, ingredient information, and food safety so that your camper comes home happy, healthy...and with lunch already in the bag! Girls entering grades 6-9 in fall 2023 may register.
