STEMQuest: Star Wars Empire vs. Rebellion

Grades: 4-8

Bring the galaxy from far far away, much much closer to camp. Using custom built podracers, foam ball blasters, and rolling droid drones, campers will split into two separate groups and participate either as a member of the controlling Empire or of the elite Rebellion strike force. Teams work together in hands-on building activities to prepare for the multiple battles that occur throughout the week - all in a friendly competitive environment. The ultimate daily and weekly goal is for campers to use both their minds and their hands to eliminate the opposing team’s holdout positions through strategy and collaborative planning.

SAT/ACT Test Prep

Grades: 10-12

The ACT and SAT are NOT difficult tests - they merely seem that way because they are shrouded in mystery for students. Qualified instructor Joe Mirabelle utilizes a diverse set of skills that includes academic mentoring, behavioral psychology, and years of precise, data-driven ACT/SAT tutoring methods. Joe has spent countless hours breaking apart the tests into their component skills and topics. Let Joe help your student demystify the tests and foster the confidence necessary to achieve their Dream Score! The resulting increases on ACT/SAT scores speak for themselves… Ask around, chances are we have helped the child of someone you know!
