Religion Camp

In this Cathedral-building Minecraft summer workshop, you will have a chance to learn about the rich tradition of Church architecture. Everyone will research real cathedrals and build their own model on the computer using Minecraft.  After building your own cathedral, you will have the opportunity to visit the St. Francis Cathedral in Metuchen or/and Sacred Heart Cathedral in Newark. Join us on this fun and faith filled adventure.

Theater Extravaganza

Experience all areas of the theater, including acting, singing, dancing, stage fighting, and technical elements. Emphasis is on the development of communication skills. Learn practical techniques in acting, basic movement and voice, as well as how to choose the right performance material and how to audition.


The basics of every crime scene will be covered as they are used in everyday police and investigative work. From identifying fingerprints to forensic search patterns to handwriting analysis, all techniques will be examined in order to answer the classic question: Who did it? 


Come for an exciting week of exploration, skill building, and engineering design. It’s a hands-on learning experience where we introduce engineering concepts, 3D printing, and laser printing in our state-of-the-art STEM learning lab. We will be learning different skills throughout the week that will contribute to our design project, which students will compete in on the last day!
