Academic Camps In New Jersey

Students are introduced to small and large animal medical care in veterinary science summer camp.

Academic camps in New Jersey offer lessons in a variety of subjects including computer programming, environmental science and creative writing. Camps are tailored to provide the most age-appropriate instruction possible, with small group classes led by experienced teachers. Most camps require that participants choose a specific area of interest, but still allow kids to participate in more than one program throughout the summer.

Centenary College

Centenary College offers a variety of academic summer programs for young adults between the ages of 13 and 18. Week-long programs are available in creative writing, radio and broadcasting, environmental science, veterinary science, education and forensics. Students choose one course per week. The creative writing classes teach campers to transform an idea into a written piece of work through imagination and structure. The course discusses the importance of plot, character development, editing and more. The forensic science program caters to inquiring minds through hands-on experience with crime scene investigation techniques. Students get to try out fingerprinting, print lifting, castings and blood spatter analysis. At the end of the week, campers participate in a simulated crime scene investigation to test their newly learned skills. Programs begin every Sunday and continue through Friday. Campers who choose to participate in more than one program may stay at the college during the weekend in between programs.
