Summer Adventures at Science & Arts Academy is a unique enrichment and recreation day camp open to SAA students and the local community. 

We offer 3 two-week sessions each summer for children starting at 3 years old to rising 8th graders. We are proud to employ a team of talented educators and counselors who are fully committed to creating a fun and meaningful summer for every camper.

​Our mission is to provide a safe and enriching summer experience within an environment characterized by intellectual, artistic, physical, social, emotional, and creative growth. We accomplish this by offering programs that inspire learning and self-discovery, and that provide opportunities for friendship building and simply having fun being a kid!
