The GNYC STEM Subcommittee welcomes you to Spring Break Stem Camp at the Alpine Scout Camp.
During the spring break week, scouts wishing to keep their brains in high gear and possibly earn one of the Nova Awards can come to STEM Camp. Beginning Monday April 13th at 12pm check-in and ending at 10 am on Saturday the 18th with graduation. Up to 40 youth from GNYC can come challenge themselves and work with others as our staff of energized counselors, mentors and a cadre of outside professionals introduce them to a variety of science, technology, engineering and math. Some merit badges will be available guest presenters will be on hand in a variety of scientific, technology and related fields. Some previous years presenters included the Lamont Dougherty Earth Observatory, the NJ Civil Air Patrol, NJ State Police Aviation, Amateur Astronomers, Kings County Repeater Club and Sterling Hills Mines. This year’s theme will focus on criminology and forensic science. The cost for this event is $375 and covers room, meals, fun, trip and supplies and is open to the first 40 youth to apply.
