About Our Camp
In 2020, after an eleven-year career in the Navy, I decided it was time to make homeschooling a priority for my children. I was educated in the Half Hollow Hills school district in Dix Hills, NY, near the center of Long Island. An exceptionally affluent school district provided me with one of the premier educational experiences available in the country.
After a little exposure to the classical education experience with our oldest child, I decided there was significant value to alternative forms of education. I was concerned, however, that an alternative education as the main syllabus could leave them behind their peers in certain disciplines. While I have studied and instructed at the graduate level, I felt it best to leave the basic disciplines to the public school system.
To supplement the standard public school education, I decided to create my own adjunct syllabus. The goal of Camp STEM+ is to plant seeds in a larger educational portfolio to give my children the most well-rounded experience I can afford. My hope is that by sharing our experiences online, it will inspire you to join Camp STEM+ remotely and grow a larger community of at-home, part-time, adjunct professor parents whose children will one day LEAD the world in peace, harmony, and, hopefully, humor.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you join the cause!
