Summer Camp

Come Explore with Baker!

Summertime was made for exploration.

At Baker, we’ve designed a summer camp that offers more than a getaway for kids. It’s an adventurePK-6th graders engage in exciting projects that unlock the secrets of the things that fascinate them, deepen their sense of wonder and give them a hunger to learn more.
