I just finished shoveling my property during the first snowstorm in February, with two more storms to follow. I opened my email to find that registration will open soon for URJ 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy, a new summer camp offering high-level programming in science and technology. This innovative new camp will open in July 2014 on the campus of The Governor’s Academy near Boston. URJ 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy will attract campers seeking high-level science and technology experiential and fun learning in the summer. Campers will work alongside experienced instructors to design projects in activities such as robotics, video game design, environmental science, and digital media production.
The new camp builds off the success of the URJ’s first specialty camp, 6 Points Sports Academy, which recently completed its fourth summer with more than 600 campers. Both camps offer two-week sessions, professional instructors and program design, and locations on the campuses of prestigious boarding schools. The Governor’s Academy, 30 minutes north of Boston, features modern educational, recreational and dorm facilities combined with a rustic campus to give a “summer camp” feel and create a safe and warm environment for campers.
