MACC 2015 Camps Feature STEAM Classes
When it comes to summer camps, most parents like to sneak in some educational content while showing kids a good time. The Mountain Arts Community Center thinks the same way with its new slate of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) inspired classes.
Choose from any number of camps that will motivate and invigorate your child so that this summer will be one to remember.
