At 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy, scientific inquiry meets fun! Campers entering grades 5-9 spend two weeks exploring robotics, video game design, environmental science, digital media, and a host of other fun activities in a friendly setting with boys and girls who share similar interests.
Throughout their experience, campers explore what Judaism means to them—and how this complements their interests in science and technology. Campers gain an understanding of their place in the long history of the Jewish people’s contributions to science and technology, and build a strong connection to Israel as an incubator of innovation. 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy is the Reform Jewish camp that curious minds have been waiting for.
Located just outside of Boston’s science and technology corridor on the campus of the beautiful Governor’s Academy boarding school, 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy offers all of the advantages of a top-quality educational facility along with access to the best and brightest minds in the Jewish science and technology community.
6 Points Sci-Tech Academy fosters young people’s curiosity in the context of Jewish values and community. Here, campers co-create every aspect of their experience, including:
Choosing a learning track that matches their interests
Developing projects that ignite their imagination
Creating the Shabbat experience in community with other campers and staff
Learning the skills of inquiry that science and technology requires
Discovering how Jewish values align with modern science and technology
Active minds, active bodies!
Camp means being active, both mentally and physically. Our science and technology programs are designed specifically for the camp environment, with active, outdoor learning experiences. The educational portions of our program are complemented by an hour of recreation time each day, when campers can play games like gaga (Israeli dodgeball), take a hike with their counselors through our 450 wooded acres, or challenge themselves on our ropes course.
Did we mention that 6-Points Sci-Tech is fun?
From the friendly, engaging counselors who live in dorms with campers, to the visiting specialists who take a personal interest in young people, to evenings spent telling stories around a camp fire, the 6 Points Sci-Tech experience is one that campers will want to revisit year after year.
