Academic Booster Camp

A 4-day refreshing Camp focusing on STEAM to jump-start your child's primary academic skills and boost their self-confidence with the upcoming opening of the school year.

The Academic Booster Camp will focus on STEAM activities hosted in different important scenic attractions in the heart of Stockholm. We will explore science, technology, engineering, art, and math in a playful way. Through these activities, numeracy and literacy skills will be practiced. Day to day modules will be provided to enhance and practice primary related concepts.

Aside from the exciting STEAM activities, your child will own an annual membership card at Tekniska Museet* which they can use to relinquish their experience at the Museum.
