At 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy, scientific inquiry meets fun! Campers entering grades 5-10 spend two weeks exploring robotics, video game design, environmental science, digital media, and a host of other fun activities in a friendly setting with campers who share similar interests.
Throughout their experience, campers explore what Judaism means to them—and how this complements their interests in science and technology. Our five core values shape our community - kavod (respect), kesher (connection), sakranut (curiosity), taglit (discovery), and savlanut (patience). 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 sports like tennis, soccer, basketball, and Frisbee in our top-notch athletic facilities. Other popular choices are gaga (Israeli dodgeball), dance and Zumba, hiking though the many wooded acres on camp, and climbing on our challenging rock wall.
