Gateway Academy, the Valley’s Top School for Autism, Announces Its Warrior STEAM Camp This Summer

Join Gateway Academy for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math Workshops Designed to Engage Students in 3D Design, Circuits, Code Blocks, and Virtual Reality

 Just because the traditional school year ends, it doesn’t mean that opportunities to learn and grow should end either. With that spirit in mind, Gateway Academy, the Valley’s top school serving students diagnosed with High Functioning Autism, is proud to announce the dates for this year’s Warrior STEAM Camp, a summer camp designed to engage middle and high school students in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math disciplines. The Warrior STEAM Camp will be happening from June 5th to June 30th, 2023.

Gateway Academy is an incredibly supportive and comfortable community where students build transformative relationships and a courageous sense of self. During Warrior STEAM Camp, those core relationships combined with the social and emotional job of shared experiences enable students to tackle challenges, learn and grow inside or outside a lab! It is designed to blend adventure, experiential learning and fun in a supportive educational experience for incoming or current 6th through 12th graders who may have struggled in more traditional school settings.

The Camp is designed as a fun, immersive experience for those students who want to learn more about any STEAM area. The four-week program is divided into one-week sessions, including the following courses: Fractal Art, Engineering and Technology, Elegoo, Alchemy, Code Monkey, Exploring Coding and Beyond, Forensic Science, Aeronautics, College Tours, Learning Core Skills, Tech/Interest Etiquette, and much more.

“This is a unique opportunity for students to come check out Gateway Academy and see what we are all about while diving further into the jobs of today and tomorrow,” said O. Robin Sweet, Executive Director and CEO of Gateway Academy. “Whether students are looking to explore a new passion or meet new friends our Warrior Summer Camp takes the STEAM Curriculum to a fun and interactive level for the month of June.”
