GVSU Camps:

Science Technology & Engineering Preview Summer (STEPS) Camp for Girls and Boys is a day-camp preview of science, engineering and technology for young students between the 6th and 7th grades.  The theme of airplane flight is utilized to integrate technical classes and recreational activities, all the while encouraging social development and personal growth.  The students manufacture and assemble a radio controlled airplane. By the end of the week, they fly their airplanes at a sanctioned fly field, with the help of certified pilots.
