Summer STEAM 
Adventures

              2 to 5 years.            

Big & Tiny’s Summer STEAM Adventure Series is a fun, enriching and supportive first camp experience designed for 2 to 5 year-olds. Children are divided into two age groups (2Y & 3Y and 4Y & 5Y).We provide multiple opportunities for children to learn through hands on projects, and connect with nature through plenty of outdoor play while exploring our beautiful neighborhood and community. 

Join us this Summer
June 24-August 23

In this summer long program, your child will participate in immersive adventures. Each week will focus on different aspects of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) and will culminate in an in-person, inquiry-based expedition to one of the wonders of NYC! Children will be divided into two age groups (2Y to 3Y and 4Y to 5Y).


Explore nature and learn about gardening at local city parks; Learn the science behind making slime; Engage in Engineering & Physics with a ride on the Battery Park Ferry; Analyze Architecture on a field trip to the local buildings, get creative with Painting & Sculpture–the possibilities are endless this summer!

Program Blueprint

Throughout the week, Big & Tiny’s expert staff will be guiding your tiny adventurer through a series of experiential learning activities to prepare them for a culminating project or a field trip, depending on the week and theme. And at the end of each week, the class will engage in verbal, visual and written reflections to encourage each student to see the connections between what they’ve experienced and the academic subject matter that inspired it. Oh, and did we mention that it’s going to be a ton of fun too?

 

Each educator at Big and Tiny has degrees in early childhood education and the experience to provide a caring and supportive environment for first-time campers. We strive to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere while facilitating connection and friendship. Your tiny one will connect with nature, gain personal and social confidence, independence, and make friends. Our Summer program is the perfect first-step for those children entering Preschool and beyond.
