Get Ready for a Summer of Discovery!
June 15-August 7, 2020
Bonus Weeks August 10 & 17


At Baker Summer Discovery Camp our campers have every opportunity to learn and grow in a supportive and happy environment. We create summer experiences that encourage kids to try new things, build confidence, make friends, learn something new and have fun.

Whether your child wants to be on the stage, in the lab, in the art studio, on the field, or on the waterfront, this is a place where your child becomes known and valued. Baker Summer Discovery Camp offers a hands-on, child-centered experience designed to spark the imagination and engage the intellect- all while offering an equally important dose of fun and physical activity.

Here are just a few of our summer classes:

CSI Baker
Join the Baker CSI team to practice your investigative skills this summer. Collect and analyze fingerprints and fiber samples, learn to decipher coded messages, and effectively interrogate suspects.

3D Sculpture
Using paper, cardboard, plastic, fabric, found objects, chicken wire, and plaster, campers will embark on and artistic journey learning how to create a variety of sculptures including mosaic self portraits and African masks in this dynamic, 3D recycled art class.

Nature Explorers
Our nature explorers learn about ecosystems, animals and their habitats, and the important work of insects through hands-on experiences inside and outside the classroom.

New for 2020
Our Counselor in Training (CIT) program is for rising 8th-10th graders who want to gain work experience and earn volunteer hours. Supported by experienced counselors, CITs swim, play, read, and explore with our littlest campers, all while learning valuable job skills.

August 10 & August 17
This year's Baker Bonus Weeks will be led by our second grade associate teacher, Moira Gitau, which will be run in a similar fashion to the Summer Discovery Camp with a project-based learning activity in the morning followed by outdoor sports, arts, and swimming in the afternoon.

The fun and the friendships that are built at camp provide life-long childhood memories for our campers! Please visit bakerdemschool.org/summer-program to view all of our course listings and to view our daily camp schedule.
