Each week of Sage Exploration delves into an exciting theme that sparks your child’s curiosity and encourages a love of learning. Participants work with same-aged peers in the morning, immersed in experiential learning that enhances the weekly theme. Lessons and projects are taught through an integrated approach, incorporating STEAM (Science, technology, engineering, arts, math) and Humanities (literacy, history, social studies), in ways that will inspire discovery.
The afternoons provide an opportunity for children to apply what they have learned through a variety of traditional day camp activities, including outdoor exploration, play, special visitors, and creative projects led by our experienced staff.

Students spend their mornings immersed in topics that follow the weekly theme. Lessons and projects will be taught using an integrated approach, incorporating math, literacy, history, science, art, music, technology, and more. Students will utilize the school’s many resources, including our Science Lab, Media Room and computers in order to engage fully in the learning experience.
What is a summer program without sports and games, dance, and arts and crafts? The afternoon will provide an opportunity for children to apply what they learned in the morning session through non-competitive physical activity, outdoor exploration, and creative activities lead by our experienced staff.
