Summer STE(A)M Adventure with FasTracKids
Summer is an opportunity to continue your child’s learning during a time when they are the most relaxed. It is widely documented that without structured learning, children are likely to lose 1 to 3 months of reading and math skills over summer vacation This is commonly referred to as the “summer slide.” Cure the Summer Slide with our suite of summer enrichment camps.

Snapology Summer Camps
Children are meant to learn through play. When children are actively engaged in hands-on, interactive learning activities, their creativity flourishes and they show a greater interest in school. At Snapology we help your child grow up with a thirst for knowledge. How do we do it? Snapology engages children ages 2-14 using LEGO bricks, K’Nex, and technology. While the kids are having fun with familiar toys, laptops, and iPads, we sneak in the educational concepts.
Our approach is based on proven, research; that children’s best learning experiences come from actively designing, creating, interacting, and inventing. Snapology activities encourage social skills and teamwork, while teaching science, technology, engineering, art, math, and literacy concepts.
LEGO THEMED CLASSES, CAMPS, & WORKSHOPS
Snapoloy’s themed programs are designed to promote creative play, teamwork, and social skills. Using popular topics like Minecraft, Star Wars, & Superheroes, students are engaged in a variety of theme-focused activities while learning engineering and math principles. Snapoloy’s goal is to put purpose to their building through blueprinting and idea sharing. Our themed programs use LEGO bricks, K’Nex and other interactive building toys to engage children and spark their creativity.
HOW SNAPOLOGY CAMPS WORK
CURRICULUM: Snapology camps provide a perfect mixture of learning and fun. We incorporate the education, social skills and STEAM concepts into the creating, inventing, games, and fun. All the learning principles taught in our programs are mapped to Common Core Standards and many are mapped to the Next Generation Science Standards.
CAMP TIMING: Day Camp hours are 9:00-3:00pm. Drop off begins each day at 8:30am. For maximum efficiency, we ask you to be punctual at arrival and dismissal times. Extended day available.
EXERCISE AND ENERGY: While Snapology’s camps include some games and activities that get the kids moving, we are firmly in the academic camp arena.
