Summer Program


STARBASE Duluth Summer Program: STARBASE Explorers

Our STARBASE Explorers summer camp program incorporates new and exciting STEM content to create a truly one-of-a-kind experience. Students will get hands-on with rocket engineering, CAD design, GPS navigation, rover programming, earth science investigation, and exploration. The content for our summer camp is an entirely separate curriculum from our school-year program.

As students dive into exploring the amazing world of STEM, they will also take away important skills we embed into every activity including perseverance, teamwork, respect, and creativity. Students also gain real-world knowledge about exciting careers in the STEM fields in our region and beyond.

The program is intended for children entering grades 4 through 6 in the Fall of 2024. Limit one session, per child, per summer. Children may participate twice over the course of two different summers. Students from any school, and any district are welcome to register for summer camp.

Sessions run for four days, five hours a day. Sessions run from 8:30 AM to 1:30 PM daily. There is a tax-deductible contribution option per student attending. You can opt to give a gift to STARBASE to support equipment/supply needs and to support attendance at camp for underserved and underrepresented students in our community. Each year, STARBASE sets aside camp sessions for area youth organizations and their students to attend. STARBASE is 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to increase the knowledge, skills, and interest of youth in science, technology, engineering, and math, and relies on your support to be able to offer this unique and high quality program to you. The true cost of the program exceeds $200/child.
