how it works

Curious Jane Camp is a full-day, full-week program. Each week, we offer a variety of project-based themes. CJ favorites include Kitchen Chemistry, Spy Science, Room Makeover, Miniature World, Spa Science, Fab Lab, Invent It, and more!

Campers register on a weekly basis, and sign up for their favorite *theme* each week. Class size ranges from 8 to 14 girls, and the camp week is focused on making and experimenting – all revolving around their theme.

The classroom setting is energetic and creative. Girls spend much of the day working on their projects. They also go outside for open play, and have group camp activities each afternoon.

who it’s for

Curious Jane Camp is for girls entering K-1st, 2nd-3rd and 4th-6th grades. We offer a CIT Studio program for girls entering 7th-9th grades.
