GoSciTech, CREATEng, and iTEAMS Xtreme Summer 2020 Camps Cancelled

May 1, 2020

Dear 2020 GSSM Summer Camp Students & Families,    

Because our priority is the health and safety of the students and staff participating in our Outreach programs, and the impacts of COVID-19 are constantly changing, I must announce with a heavy heart that we will not be able to offer our 2020 GoSciTech residential camp on the GSSM campus or our iTEAMS, and CREATEng day camps in satellite locations across the state. This difficult decision was made after many hours of careful reflection, deliberation, and analysis of state and national COVID-19 guidelines and other health and safety information.

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. Please complete our brief survey by clicking on Outreach Summer Virtual Experiences. We hope you will join us in these new experiences!

We will miss seeing talented young learners working in teams, collaborating, being creative, and developing a deeper understanding of STEM this summer. We will miss the opportunity to provide students with a challenging, fun, and interactive week on the GSSM campus or at one of our satellite locations across the state. We will miss seeing you in person but hope to see you again soon at another GSSM program!

We will be back better than ever next summer and we look forward to you being a part of our 2021 summer STEM experience!

Parents/Guardians, if you have made a payment or deposit, we will start issuing refunds next week. Please be patient while refunds are being processed. Debit/Credit card refunds may take many days to post to accounts. Melissa Hoffman is available by email at camps@scgssm.org  or by telephone at 843-287-3533 to answer your questions about our virtual summer camp offerings or your refund.

Stay well!
