The Miami Valley School

Full STEAM Ahead: Destination Mars (4th – 6th)

Camp Description
Under the direction of Kellie Carter, several of our MVS all stars have come together to create and lead this awesome STEAM camp. In this imaginative challenge, students work in teams to represent one of the USA’s NASA stations. Each station will invent, design, and create a settlement on Mars. Teams work through modules each day as they tackle hands-on, in-depth science, technology, engineering, art, and math challenges. As NASA scientists, students will create a Mars habitat, build and program a rover, engineer and build rockets and parachutes, capture and use solar power, and learn about growing food in varying soil and atmospheric conditions. The curriculum in this camp fosters teamwork, while igniting curiosity, creativity, and problem solving. Instructors: Kellie Carter, Melissa Walts, Bryan Lakatos, Debbie Voetberg, and Patti DeLotell


Whether you're exploring our immersive learning method for the first time or are already a member of The Miami Valley School family, summer camps give your student a chance to reinforce the skills learned over the school year, explore favorite subjects through deep experience and prepare for the next year while having fun. Join us this summer and see why here, they become. The majority of our summer camps are run by MVS faculty ensuring one-to-one attention from faculty that are experts in their fields.

Our camp offerings range from 3-year-olds to seniors in high school, with each camp customized to provide an optimal learning experience for each student around the subject of her choice. Unique to MVS, Immersion method is rooted in the research that students learn best when their learning is rooted in experience and master educators guide students to explore, connect, share and reflect. From cooking to science exploration to real-life problem solving in a boat on the river, our students make the world their classroom during summer camp.
