Mobile summer camps for kids traveling around Tampa Bay

TAMPA, FL (WFLA) — From art, to dance, and even Legos, summer camps are going mobile. Many are rolling into neighborhoods and community centers near you.

“We have all the materials, we have all the lesson plans, all created by us, and we just roll in and get started,” said Leslie Wall, of Adventures in Engineering.

Wall and her partner Mary Saville are retired engineers and together the moms decided to start a mobile camp bring STEAM learning to schools and summer camps across Tampa Bay.

From Westchase in Tampa to Safety Harbor in Pinellas County, Adventures in Engineering is helping kids have fun learning science, technology, engineer and math.

“Even though it’s a camp, it’s really not just mindless activities,” said Wall. The students at the Safety Harbor Location are learning everything from the principals of gravity to aeronautic drag.

The program is available year-round in public, private and home schools. Now, Adventures in Engineering is going virtual.

“You get kits and if you’re in the middle of a very rural area, you can participate and collaborate in real time with other kids,” said Mary Saville, co-owner of Adventures in Engineering.
