 This fun and innovative annual summer camp features excursions to
 Boston-area companies, organizations, or field sites that highlight a

 STEM-related careers and the educational pathways needed to attain
 those careers. In addition, they are introduced to college life and
 academics through campus tours featuring Wheelock's classrooms,
 residence halls, library, theater, dining hall, multicultural center,
 and other campus buildings. Also, campers have the opportunity to
 participate in discussions with college students, faculty, and staff.
