On the second floor, the director will ask for you and your child’s name, and direct you to the classroom your child will be staying in.

Our History with Summer Camps

Providing local elementary and middle school students the opportunity to get hands-on experience in science, technology, engineering, and math is a key mission of f(x). Our team started hosting summer camps in 2017 and each year our programs have grown. Unfortunately from 2020-2022, we were unable to host live, in-person camps, due to the pandemic and our team’s schedule.

We are so excited to start up this tradition once again! We hope to see you there!
