2020 Summer Camp program


Thank you for your interest in the C5ISR Center Math and Science Summer Camp. As part of our mission to continuously improve your program experience, we have made some changes to the Application Process for the 2022 season. Please make note of these changes as they could impact whether your student’s application is processed properly.

  • BEFORE YOU START: for Parents/Guardians using a government computer, please be aware that features may be slower and the site may be prevented from opening. It is strongly recommended that you use a non-government computer or a mobile device to apply. The application can be accessed on any computer or mobile device with an internet connection.
  • Each camper must be registered separately. Individuals registering multiple students will need to submit a new application for each camper as opposed to the “add camper” feature in previous years.
    • Individuals registering for friends, or non-members of their family, will need to sign out before submitting a new application.
  • Parents/Guardians applying for camp do not need to sign in to Submit or create an account for this application. If the system does prompt you to enter account information, you can hit cancel and continue with the application.
  • Once you have completed and submitted your application, you will receive an automatically generated confirmation email. Depending on your email server and security settings, this email may go to your SPAM folder. If you do not see the email in your inbox, please check your SPAM or Junk mail folder.

As always, applications will be processed on a strict first come – first served basis, with placement preference given to campers whose parent/guardian is a current military member with Active Duty, Reserves or National Guard.

Applications will be available here through Monday, February 28, 2022 until 11:55PM. To apply, please click on “Apply Here” button located at the bottom of this page.

Application Instructions

We look forward to seeing you this summer at the 2022 C5ISR Center Math and Science Summer Camp.

Thank you for your interest in the C5ISR Center Math and Science Summer Camp. Applications are no longer being accepted for the 2022 season. Please be sure to visit us next December for information about the 2023 C5ISR Center Math and Science Summer Camp season. Have a great year and we hope to see you next summer.

Introducing the Summer 2022 Themes…

5th-6th Grade Program-
The Science Behind Sports "The S in Sports Stands for Science!"
July 25 – July 29

Can you play basketball with a bowling ball? How about play soccer in ballet shoes? During “The Science behind Sports,” we will examine the ways that different materials influence every aspect of sports…and of life. Each day, we will focus on one letter from the STEM acronym- Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math- and how it relates to the world of sports. We will start by focusing on the many places science can be found in how we play sports. Next will be Technology Tuesday where we will deep dive into the technology in sports equipment. Wednesday is all about engineering and using the engineering design process. On Thursday, we will study collisions, momentum and math in sports. Friday will wrap up our STEM experience and give campers the chance to pull it all together.

9th -10th Grade Program-
Hybrid Vehicle Design Challenge
Aug 1 – Aug 5

Every great invention begins with an engineer who is filling a need. During our “Hybrid Vehicle Design Challenge,” campers will explore the concept of energy as it relates to both kinetic and potential energy as well as topics such as gravitational potential, spring potential, the Carnot engine, temperature scales and simple magnets. Throughout the week, campers will combine in-depth lessons with hands on experiences and have an opportunity to interact with experts in everything from engineering to racecars. Each lesson will help them as they apply these scientific concepts to design a physical energy storage system for a new hybrid vehicle.

7th-8th Grade Program-
Sun Rays Fun Days
Aug 8 – Aug 12

What better time than summer to explore the methods engineers have devised for harnessing sunlight to generate power? Campers will work throughout the week to understand concepts such as energy conversion, conservation of energy, current and voltage. Each day they will complete a hands-on activity to illustrate these concepts including working with photovoltaic cells, building their own solar ovens and constructing model solar-powered cars. Each project will also look at the ways that different technologies interact such as using the solar car project to explore gear ratios and simple mechanics.

*In the event that camp is executed virtually due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic, there will still be LIVE instruction taught each day by Maryland State Board of Education certified teachers.

The DEVCOM C5ISR Center Math and Science Summer Camp is a one-week introductory Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) program providing students with hands-on learning in science and engineering, featuring the development of models to solve real world problems. Campers participate in planning and carrying out investigations, analyzing data, and discussing, explaining, and using evidence for ideas.

The DEVCOM C5ISR Center Math and Science Summer Program enhances your child’s interest in STEM through a fun, hands on approach based on how today’s students learn science. The curriculum for each session revolves around observation, questioning, and designing solutions using engineering and technology. All programs are taught by state-certified teachers.

The DEVCOM C5ISR Center Math and Science Camp is designated as a camp in “good standing” by the license board of the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH).

*Camp is scheduled to be held at the Harford Glen Environmental Center in Bel Air. However, the C5ISR Center Community Outreach Office continues to monitor COVID 19 carefully, and should there be any changes to this, parents and guardians will be notified as early as possible. As always, our first priority is the safety and wellbeing of our students, our workforce and the community. If you have any questions about COVID 19 as it relates to our summer camp program, please contact us at usarmy.apg.devcom-c5isr.mbx.c5isr-camp@army.mil.

IMPORTANT: Applications are ONLY available
through 11:55 PM EST on Feb 28, 2022.
