Gateway Academy holds STEAM summer camp


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, which serves students on the autism spectrum, is announcing 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 5-30, according to a press release.

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: 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,” O. Robin Sweet, executive director and CEO of Gateway Academy, said in a press release. “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.”

Gateway Academy is educates twice-exceptional students and students with high functioning autism for grades 6-12 by highlighting curriculum that support academic, social and emotional development.

They focus on helping students improve their executive functioning skills while also providing opportunities to participate in myriad additional activities such as student council, National Honor Society, multimedia art, world language, Gateway NASA, instrumental and digital music, in addition to the scientific disciplines highlighted in Warrior STEAM Camp. 

Gateway Academy is an accredited, non-profit school that accepts both empowerment scholarships as well as state tax organization scholarships, with numerous resources in order to guide parents through the funding process.

They encourage parents of prospective and current students to visit their ESA parent support page. ESA funds can be used for the Warrior STEAM Camp.

The cost per session is $750, and it is a co-ed program for students in 6th to 12th grade. The full four-week session runs from June 5-30, with workshops happening 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to noon on Fridays. Enrollment is limited.
