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-8th 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.

The Best Part of Summer

Our explorative summer programming is based on the same progressive philosophy that applies during the school year. Kids love to learn. 

We show them how to use design thinking to create their own way of bringing whatever they imagine to life. The results are wholly theirs, from concept to process to finished product. That’s not only empowering. It’s super fun!

  • Educational Discoveries
  • Creative Projects
  • Outdoor Adventures
  • Fun Fridays (and our walk to Lake Michigan)

Note: In 2020, we began offering a virtual Summer Camp in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This new model engages children in 3rd through 8th grades with exciting design engineering challenges. We plan to return to traditional camp programming in 2021 if it is safe to do so.

What Will Your Child Create?

Examples of our 2020 virtual summer projects included:

3rd-4th Grades

5th-8th Grades

We hope to return to offering PK-8th graders opportunities to engage in creativity, adventure and outdoor fun at our traditional Summer Camp in 2021! Check back for updates.
