This camp is open to rising third through fifth graders, and participation is limited to 20 campers. The cost is $125. During this four-day event, students will take part in engineering design challenges and learn about related STEM careers. Real-world connections will be made for each student, and they will also set their own STEM career goals. This camp is hosted by Magnolia Midlands Georgia Youth Science & Technology Centers (GYSTC).


Makerspace Day Camp will be held June 20 from 8 a.m. until noon. A makerspace is a place where students can create, problem-solve, and develop skills, talents, thinking, and mental rigor.

Finally, in its 10th year at the Fulford Center, Camp Invention will be held July 11 through July 15 from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. for rising third through sixth graders. Camp Invention is a nationally recognized unique summer opportunity to explore science, technology, engineering, and math through exciting hands-on activities.
