Summer 2024 Information

Newton’s Attic will offer a variety of STEM day camps weekly June 3rd – Friday August 9th, 2024.

•Please know that most classes are offered repeatedly throughout the summer, we can usually accommodate wait-lists (so be sure to register to the wait list if you find a class full), and we often add extra sessions of popular classes as they fill.

• Day camps are offered on a week-by-week basis for grades 1st-3rd, 3rd-5th, 5th-8th, 7th-10th and occasional 9th grade + offerings. Most classes are half-day weeks (morning or afternoon sessions), but you can always register for a full-day week by choosing a morning and afternoon week-long session for your child and sending a sack lunch.

• Half-day weeks start at a price of $265, depending on the program. A full-day, full-week registration would cost double that, depending on the price of the combined classes.

• Our daily schedule runs 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with a half-hour grace period on either end of the day for drop off and pick up between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at no extra charge. Earlier drop off or later pickup can be arranged for a small fee during registration. Morning-only sessions run 8:30 to 12:00, and afternoon sessions run 1:00 to 4:30 p.m.. Again, two half days can be combined for a full day if you send a sack lunch.

• Different class names indicate different projects. Repeating a class with the same name necessitates repeating the same activities.

Frequently Asked Questions

Newton’s Attic will run in-person summer STEM programs weekly June 3rd – Friday August 9th, 2024 for grades 1 – 10.

Summer day camps are offered on a week-by-week basis for grades 1st-3rd, 3rd-5th, 5th-8th, 7th-10th and occasional 11th grade + offerings. Most classes are half-day weeks (morning or afternoon sessions), but you can always register for a full-day week by choosing a morning and afternoon week-long session for your child and sending a sack lunch.

Most half-day weeks start at a price of $265, depending on the program. A full-day, full-week registration would cost double that, depending on the price of the combined classes.

Our daily schedule runs 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with a half-hour grace period on either end of the day for drop off and pick up between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at no extra charge.

Offerings include robotics, coding, chemistry, and pre-engineering in the areas of mechanical and electrical systems and aerospace.  We apologize that we will not be able to reserve space or answer your questions about the timing of specific offerings before registration is published.

The grade levels indicated for classes are for students entering and exiting that grade level. In other words, a rising 3rd grader may take a 1st – 3rd or a 3rd – 5th grade class. When possible, we highly recommend registering for the lower grade-level category. Not only does registering “down” provide more options and flexibility for future registrations, but experiments and projects are class-specific and will not be repeated in other classes, so once a student moves out of a grade category, they will miss the opportunity to do those projects.

Payment in-full will need to be made at the time of  registration. Cancellations made more than one week prior to the start date will receive a 100% credit toward future classes. Cancellations made one week to 72 hour prior to the start date will receive a 75% credit toward future classes. Cancellations made within a 72 hour window will receive a 50% credit toward future classes. Credits remain on the account and can be used indefinitely. Exceptions for making a refund versus credit will be considered. Cancellations made after the start of the class will not receive a refund or credit.
