Children qualify to attend camp if they have an IEP through the city of Milford.The camp is divided into 6 groups, and the groups are formed with children of the same age.  The needs of the children range from developmental delays, speech and language delays, social/emotional delays, and multi handicapping conditions.The camp is a structured 6 period day with the following periods, Music, Arts & Crafts, Physical Education, Instructional swim, a “Free swim”, and a Create your own period.  Musicians, Jugglers, and other Entertainers visit the camp for the children.  We also have theme days and awards given to all the campers.   Many of the special performers and trips and activities we develop for the camp need financial assistance from outside organizations due to budgetary restraints Since 1965 the camp has been in existence. It has evolved from a camp of 20 - 30 children to a camp of 100 - 120 each summer.  There are 40 paid staff members who are high school students, college students and some teachers.  The camp has a full time nurse on duty.  We also have a behavioral management program in place from day one.Camp Happiness motto is Come On~ Get Happy!

11:00 AM - 2:00 PM    Robotics - WaterBotics
          Do you think you would have fun designing, and controlling a robot to function underwater? Do you ever wonder if you could tinker and tweak something to create or improve how it works?Then you might want to check-out WaterBotics®! Different from many land-based robotics programs, WaterBotics® is an innovative, underwater robotic program where teams collaborate to design, build, program, test and redesign underwater robots, made with LEGO® and other components.Teams use LEGO® materials that are familiar, have ease of use and durability, come in a variety of pieces, and are tweak friendly. Teams will learn about the Engineering Design Process (EDP); a format that engineers use to make life easier by creating and improving how things work. Teams will learn the 5 steps of The Engineering Design Process (EDP) Identify the Problem Research and Brainstorm Design and Build Test and Evaluate Redesign To ensure that students do not become daunted by building a complex robot right from the start, the curriculum is divided into a series of four “bite-sized” missions that gradually lead to the production of a fully functional robot. Each mission is a rescue scenario which builds upon the previous one so that designing and building are constantly happening.Junior Engineer ApprenticeMission 1: Rescue! Use a single motor to build a robot that can travel in a straight line—both forward and backward—on the surface of the water and save a drowning swimmer. Optimize gearing to improve speed and/or control.Mission 2: Cleanup! Use a second motor to enable steering and two-dimensional movement. Maneuver the robot on the surface of the water to clean up a spill of hazardous pollutants.  Senior EngineerIntermediate(Pre-requisite completion Junior Engineer)Mission 3: Sweep! Use a third motor to dive under the water. Combine high-density and low-density materials to achieve good buoyancy and stability, making the robot controllable underwater. Detonate or disable underwater “mines” to make a shipping lane safe.Mission 4: Collect! Combine the products of previous missions to produce a vehicle that can collect samples from a sunken ship and deposit them in various underwater collection bins. A fourth motor may be used to create a mechanism to grab and release the balls.    Head EngineerIndependent Explorers(Pre-requisite completion Junior & Senior Engineer)Independent Exploration! With the purchase of the WaterBotics® ROV Kit, students design and build robots independently. Optional purchase of WaterBotics® ROV Kits available the first day of Senior Engineer class. One WaterBotics® ROV Kit per registrant. This is a fun instructional program that directly exposes kids to science and engineering standards required in most school systems that can take 180 days of a school year of textbooks, papers, and tests. WaterBotics® is a proven outlet that helps support the learning of standards by teaching and incorporating science and engineering in a way that is unique, hands-on and most of all fun. For more information visit our website at s3stem.com.Instructors: Leslie Davis-Green/Lee Green/1 Junior InstructorLeslie Davis-Green, has over 12 years of teaching in the public and private sector. She has a MS in Elementary Education from the University of Bridgeport.  She is certified and licensed in WaterBotics® from the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ conducted by the Center for Innovation in Engineering and Science Education (CIESE) in June 2017.  Lee Green has over 30 years of corporate financial analytical operation experience.

          Do you think you would have fun designing, and controlling a robot to function underwater? Do you ever wonder if you could tinker and tweak something to create or improve how it works?Then you might want to check-out WaterBotics®! Different from many land-based robotics programs, WaterBotics® is an innovative, underwater robotic program where teams collaborate to design, build, program, test and redesign underwater robots, made with LEGO® and other components.Teams use LEGO® materials that are familiar, have ease of use and durability, come in a variety of pieces, and are tweak friendly. Teams will learn about the Engineering Design Process (EDP); a format that engineers use to make life easier by creating and improving how things work. Teams will learn the 5 steps of The Engineering Design Process (EDP) Identify the Problem Research and Brainstorm Design and Build Test and Evaluate Redesign To ensure that students do not become daunted by building a complex robot right from the start, the curriculum is divided into a series of four “bite-sized” missions that gradually lead to the production of a fully functional robot. Each mission is a rescue scenario which builds upon the previous one so that designing and building are constantly happening.Junior Engineer ApprenticeMission 1: Rescue! Use a single motor to build a robot that can travel in a straight line—both forward and backward—on the surface of the water and save a drowning swimmer. Optimize gearing to improve speed and/or control.Mission 2: Cleanup! Use a second motor to enable steering and two-dimensional movement. Maneuver the robot on the surface of the water to clean up a spill of hazardous pollutants.  Senior EngineerIntermediate(Pre-requisite completion Junior Engineer)Mission 3: Sweep! Use a third motor to dive under the water. Combine high-density and low-density materials to achieve good buoyancy and stability, making the robot controllable underwater. Detonate or disable underwater “mines” to make a shipping lane safe.Mission 4: Collect! Combine the products of previous missions to produce a vehicle that can collect samples from a sunken ship and deposit them in various underwater collection bins. A fourth motor may be used to create a mechanism to grab and release the balls.    Head EngineerIndependent Explorers(Pre-requisite completion Junior & Senior Engineer)Independent Exploration! With the purchase of the WaterBotics® ROV Kit, students design and build robots independently. Optional purchase of WaterBotics® ROV Kits available the first day of Senior Engineer class. One WaterBotics® ROV Kit per registrant. This is a fun instructional program that directly exposes kids to science and engineering standards required in most school systems that can take 180 days of a school year of textbooks, papers, and tests. WaterBotics® is a proven outlet that helps support the learning of standards by teaching and incorporating science and engineering in a way that is unique, hands-on and most of all fun. For more information visit our website at s3stem.com.Instructors: Leslie Davis-Green/Lee Green/1 Junior InstructorLeslie Davis-Green, has over 12 years of teaching in the public and private sector.

          Do you think you would have fun designing, and controlling a robot to function underwater? Do you ever wonder if you could tinker and tweak something to create or improve how it works?Then you might want to check-out WaterBotics®! Different from many land-based robotics programs, WaterBotics® is an innovative, underwater robotic program where teams collaborate to design, build, program, test and redesign underwater robots, made with LEGO® and other components.Teams use LEGO® materials that are familiar, have ease of use and durability, come in a variety of pieces, and are tweak friendly. Teams will learn about the Engineering Design Process (EDP); a format that engineers use to make life easier by creating and improving how things work. Teams will learn the 5 steps of The Engineering Design Process (EDP) Identify the Problem Research and Brainstorm Design and Build Test and Evaluate Redesign To ensure that students do not become daunted by building a complex robot right from the start, the curriculum is divided into a series of four “bite-sized” missions that gradually lead to the production of a fully functional robot. Each mission is a rescue scenario which builds upon the previous one so that designing and building are constantly happening.Junior Engineer ApprenticeMission 1: Rescue! Use a single motor to build a robot that can travel in a straight line—both forward and backward—on the surface of the water and save a drowning swimmer. Optimize gearing to improve speed and/or control.Mission 2: Cleanup! Use a second motor to enable steering and two-dimensional movement. Maneuver the robot on the surface of the water to clean up a spill of hazardous pollutants.  Senior EngineerIntermediate(Pre-requisite completion Junior Engineer)Mission 3: Sweep! Use a third motor to dive under the water. Combine high-density and low-density materials to achieve good buoyancy and stability, making the robot controllable underwater. Detonate or disable underwater “mines” to make a shipping lane safe.Mission 4: Collect! Combine the products of previous missions to produce a vehicle that can collect samples from a sunken ship and deposit them in various underwater collection bins. A fourth motor may be used to create a mechanism to grab and release the balls.    Head EngineerIndependent Explorers(Pre-requisite completion Junior & Senior Engineer)Independent Exploration! With the purchase of the WaterBotics® ROV Kit, students design and build robots independently. Optional purchase of WaterBotics® ROV Kits available the first day of Senior Engineer class. One WaterBotics® ROV Kit per registrant. This is a fun instructional program that directly exposes kids to science and engineering standards required in most school systems that can take 180 days of a school year of textbooks, papers, and tests. WaterBotics® is a proven outlet that helps support the learning of standards by teaching and incorporating science and engineering in a way that is unique, hands-on and most of all fun. For more information visit our website at s3stem.com.Instructors: Leslie Davis-Green/Lee Green/1 Junior InstructorLeslie Davis-Green, has over 12 years of teaching in the public and private sector. She has a MS in Elementary Education from the University of Bridgeport.  She is certified and licensed in WaterBotics® from the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ conducted by the Center for Innovation in Engineering and Science Education (CIESE) in June 2017.  Lee Green has over 30 years of corporate financial analytical operation experience.

11:00 AM - 2:00 PM    Robotics - WaterBotics
          Do you think you would have fun designing, and controlling a robot to function underwater? Do you ever wonder if you could tinker and tweak something to create or improve how it works?Then you might want to check-out WaterBotics®! Different from many land-based robotics programs, WaterBotics® is an innovative, underwater robotic program where teams collaborate to design, build, program, test and redesign underwater robots, made with LEGO® and other components.Teams use LEGO® materials that are familiar, have ease of use and durability, come in a variety of pieces, and are tweak friendly. Teams will learn about the Engineering Design Process (EDP); a format that engineers use to make life easier by creating and improving how things work. Teams will learn the 5 steps of The Engineering Design Process (EDP) Identify the Problem Research and Brainstorm Design and Build Test and Evaluate Redesign To ensure that students do not become daunted by building a complex robot right from the start, the curriculum is divided into a series of four “bite-sized” missions that gradually lead to the production of a fully functional robot. Each mission is a rescue scenario which builds upon the previous one so that designing and building are constantly happening.Junior Engineer ApprenticeMission 1: Rescue! Use a single motor to build a robot that can travel in a straight line—both forward and backward—on the surface of the water and save a drowning swimmer. Optimize gearing to improve speed and/or control.Mission 2: Cleanup! Use a second motor to enable steering and two-dimensional movement. Maneuver the robot on the surface of the water to clean up a spill of hazardous pollutants.  Senior EngineerIntermediate(Pre-requisite completion Junior Engineer)Mission 3: Sweep! Use a third motor to dive under the water. Combine high-density and low-density materials to achieve good buoyancy and stability, making the robot controllable underwater. Detonate or disable underwater “mines” to make a shipping lane safe.Mission 4: Collect! Combine the products of previous missions to produce a vehicle that can collect samples from a sunken ship and deposit them in various underwater collection bins. A fourth motor may be used to create a mechanism to grab and release the balls.    Head EngineerIndependent Explorers(Pre-requisite completion Junior & Senior Engineer)Independent Exploration! With the purchase of the WaterBotics® ROV Kit, students design and build robots independently. Optional purchase of WaterBotics® ROV Kits available the first day of Senior Engineer class. One WaterBotics® ROV Kit per registrant. This is a fun instructional program that directly exposes kids to science and engineering standards required in most school systems that can take 180 days of a school year of textbooks, papers, and tests. WaterBotics® is a proven outlet that helps support the learning of standards by teaching and incorporating science and engineering in a way that is unique, hands-on and most of all fun. For more information visit our website at s3stem.com.Instructors: Leslie Davis-Green/Lee Green/1 Junior InstructorLeslie Davis-Green, has over 12 years of teaching in the public and private sector.

11:00 AM - 2:00 PM    Robotics - WaterBotics
          Do you think you would have fun designing, and controlling a robot to function underwater? Do you ever wonder if you could tinker and tweak something to create or improve how it works?Then you might want to check-out WaterBotics®! Different from many land-based robotics programs, WaterBotics® is an innovative, underwater robotic program where teams collaborate to design, build, program, test and redesign underwater robots, made with LEGO® and other components.Teams use LEGO® materials that are familiar, have ease of use and durability, come in a variety of pieces, and are tweak friendly. Teams will learn about the Engineering Design Process (EDP); a format that engineers use to make life easier by creating and improving how things work. Teams will learn the 5 steps of The Engineering Design Process (EDP) Identify the Problem Research and Brainstorm Design and Build Test and Evaluate Redesign To ensure that students do not become daunted by building a complex robot right from the start, the curriculum is divided into a series of four “bite-sized” missions that gradually lead to the production of a fully functional robot. Each mission is a rescue scenario which builds upon the previous one so that designing and building are constantly happening.Junior Engineer ApprenticeMission 1: Rescue! Use a single motor to build a robot that can travel in a straight line—both forward and backward—on the surface of the water and save a drowning swimmer. Optimize gearing to improve speed and/or control.Mission 2: Cleanup! Use a second motor to enable steering and two-dimensional movement. Maneuver the robot on the surface of the water to clean up a spill of hazardous pollutants.  Senior EngineerIntermediate(Pre-requisite completion Junior Engineer)Mission 3: Sweep! Use a third motor to dive under the water. Combine high-density and low-density materials to achieve good buoyancy and stability, making the robot controllable underwater. Detonate or disable underwater “mines” to make a shipping lane safe.Mission 4: Collect! Combine the products of previous missions to produce a vehicle that can collect samples from a sunken ship and deposit them in various underwater collection bins. A fourth motor may be used to create a mechanism to grab and release the balls.    Head EngineerIndependent Explorers(Pre-requisite completion Junior & Senior Engineer)Independent Exploration! With the purchase of the WaterBotics® ROV Kit, students design and build robots independently. Optional purchase of WaterBotics® ROV Kits available the first day of Senior Engineer class. One WaterBotics® ROV Kit per registrant. This is a fun instructional program that directly exposes kids to science and engineering standards required in most school systems that can take 180 days of a school year of textbooks, papers, and tests. WaterBotics® is a proven outlet that helps support the learning of standards by teaching and incorporating science and engineering in a way that is unique, hands-on and most of all fun. For more information visit our website at s3stem.com.Instructors: Leslie Davis-Green/Lee Green/1 Junior InstructorLeslie Davis-Green, has over 12 years of teaching in the public and private sector.

Teams will learn the 5 steps of The Engineering Design Process (EDP) Identify the Problem Research and Brainstorm Design and Build Test and Evaluate Redesign To ensure that students do not become daunted by building a complex robot right from the start, the curriculum is divided into a series of four “bite-sized” missions that gradually lead to the production of a fully functional robot. Each mission is a rescue scenario which builds upon the previous one so that designing and building are constantly happening.Junior Engineer ApprenticeMission 1: Rescue! Use a single motor to build a robot that can travel in a straight line—both forward and backward—on the surface of the water and save a drowning swimmer. Optimize gearing to improve speed and/or control.Mission 2: Cleanup! Use a second motor to enable steering and two-dimensional movement. Maneuver the robot on the surface of the water to clean up a spill of hazardous pollutants.  Senior EngineerIntermediate(Pre-requisite completion Junior Engineer)Mission 3: Sweep! Use a third motor to dive under the water. Combine high-density and low-density materials to achieve good buoyancy and stability, making the robot controllable underwater. Detonate or disable underwater “mines” to make a shipping lane safe.Mission 4: Collect! Combine the products of previous missions to produce a vehicle that can collect samples from a sunken ship and deposit them in various underwater collection bins. A fourth motor may be used to create a mechanism to grab and release the balls.    Head EngineerIndependent Explorers(Pre-requisite completion Junior & Senior Engineer)Independent Exploration!

          Do you think you would have fun designing, and controlling a robot to function underwater? Do you ever wonder if you could tinker and tweak something to create or improve how it works?Then you might want to check-out WaterBotics®! Different from many land-based robotics programs, WaterBotics® is an innovative, underwater robotic program where teams collaborate to design, build, program, test and redesign underwater robots, made with LEGO® and other components.Teams use LEGO® materials that are familiar, have ease of use and durability, come in a variety of pieces, and are tweak friendly. Teams will learn about the Engineering Design Process (EDP); a format that engineers use to make life easier by creating and improving how things work. Teams will learn the 5 steps of The Engineering Design Process (EDP) Identify the Problem Research and Brainstorm Design and Build Test and Evaluate Redesign To ensure that students do not become daunted by building a complex robot right from the start, the curriculum is divided into a series of four “bite-sized” missions that gradually lead to the production of a fully functional robot. Each mission is a rescue scenario which builds upon the previous one so that designing and building are constantly happening.Junior Engineer ApprenticeMission 1: Rescue! Use a single motor to build a robot that can travel in a straight line—both forward and backward—on the surface of the water and save a drowning swimmer. Optimize gearing to improve speed and/or control.Mission 2: Cleanup! Use a second motor to enable steering and two-dimensional movement. Maneuver the robot on the surface of the water to clean up a spill of hazardous pollutants.  Senior EngineerIntermediate(Pre-requisite completion Junior Engineer)Mission 3: Sweep! Use a third motor to dive under the water. Combine high-density and low-density materials to achieve good buoyancy and stability, making the robot controllable underwater. Detonate or disable underwater “mines” to make a shipping lane safe.Mission 4: Collect! Combine the products of previous missions to produce a vehicle that can collect samples from a sunken ship and deposit them in various underwater collection bins. A fourth motor may be used to create a mechanism to grab and release the balls.    Head EngineerIndependent Explorers(Pre-requisite completion Junior & Senior Engineer)Independent Exploration! With the purchase of the WaterBotics® ROV Kit, students design and build robots independently. Optional purchase of WaterBotics® ROV Kits available the first day of Senior Engineer class. One WaterBotics® ROV Kit per registrant. This is a fun instructional program that directly exposes kids to science and engineering standards required in most school systems that can take 180 days of a school year of textbooks, papers, and tests. WaterBotics® is a proven outlet that helps support the learning of standards by teaching and incorporating science and engineering in a way that is unique, hands-on and most of all fun. For more information visit our website at s3stem.com.Instructors: Leslie Davis-Green/Lee Green/1 Junior InstructorLeslie Davis-Green, has over 12 years of teaching in the public and private sector.
