While we held out hope that we would be able to host an exciting summer full of camps all across the state, as well as welcome you to create an amazing summer experience here at GSSM, it is with a heavy heart that we announce we will not be able to offer our GoSciTech, iTEAMS, and CREATEng summer camps this year. We were so thrilled about this summer with all of the amazing experiences planned and the exciting classes offered. Our Outreach Center team will develop a series of virtual STEM summer academic learning experiences that we will make available to rising 6th – 10th grade students. We will provide you with information about these offerings and how you can participate as they are developed. We are committed to working to make our GSSM Summer Camps the ultimate camp experience, and we hope that you will be available to join us again at GoSciTech, CREATEng, and iTEAMS Xtreme next year!
