Summer Programs

Providence & Seekonk Campuses

Summer Programs are uniquely designed for students and families looking for a specific program. We are working with local organizations and faculty to provide many different programs and offerings. Summer Programs may be designed to accommodate different ages than the core of Wheeler Summer and may require to register through our partner.

Counselor-in-Training (C.I.T) Program2024-02-26T18:40:24+00:00

The four-week progression will enable the CIT to explore all aspects of Wheeler Summer Camp. The program involves daily training topics for basic counselor skills, personal and team building initiatives, group and activity observations, and ending with hands-on experience rotating in an assigned group and activity.

The final part of the training will be evaluated by the direct supervisor (group/activity head counselor) and the CIT Coordinators. The criteria for evaluation will be reviewed during the CIT’s first week of camp. These evaluations will be used to decide who will be considered for a Junior Counselor position. There is no guarantee that once the CIT has successfully completed the program, they will be hired by Wheeler Summer Camp. We employ a limited number of junior counselors (between 16 & 17 years old) to ensure the appropriate number of adult staff to supervise the campers and junior counselors. We may not always have an available position.

To be considered for the CIT program, the aspiring CIT must call the office at (508) 336-8377 to request an application. 

Fee and Program Dates:

$200 (July 8, 2024 – August 2, 2024) 

CITs must attend ALL 4 weeks (no exceptions).

Hamilton Summer Program2023-12-15T18:52:14+00:00

The Hamilton Summer Program is open to all rising 2nd to 7th-graders. It is a half-day program that features classes taught by Hamilton School faculty, and it offers a small class size, with a maximum of six children per class. The program fee is $2,450 for 4 weeks of courses focused on literacy, including Orton-Gillingham work, fluency, reading comprehension, and written expression. They also include science workshops that support literacy skills and will occur throughout the weeks. There will be a mid-morning recess each day, and we will provide a snack. 

*School testing, a neuro-psych evaluation, or a Hamilton Institute reading screening is required to determine if the program is appropriate for your child.

  • A full day of programming is available if you enroll your child in Wheeler Summer Camp. This additional cost includes transportation from our Providence Campus to our farm Campus in Seekonk, MA, for the afternoon camp session. You can select the entire 4 weeks or choose your camper to attend just session 2 or just session 3.

In-Person Artificial Intelligence intensive for middle & high school students taught by instructors from Stanford and MIT.

AI Pioneers (Middle School)

In AI Pioneers, our emerging engineers will learn how to create projects for social good with Python programming language. Through hands-on coding, students will learn how computers can use data to solve complex problems like natural language processing and computer vision. Our students will explore the ways they can meaningfully use AI to predict heart disease, create social robots, assist with disaster relief, and navigate autonomous vehicles. 

In our curriculum, we emphasize ethical responsibility, career paths in artificial intelligence, and interdisciplinary applications! From beginner to advanced coders, we envision a future where students of all backgrounds can contribute towards a bright future of inclusivity and technological advancement. 

Feel free to read more about the curriculum, projects, and teaching team here.

Course Structure

Machine Learning Talks

Learn about machine learning algorithms and techniques in a uniquely interactive, engaging format, before you apply that knowledge in live coding labs.

Hands-On Python Coding

Develop valuable skills in Python, machine learning, and artificial intelligence in our hands-on coding labs, using cutting-edge research to solve real-world problems like heart disease prediction, assistive technologies, and more.

Project-Based Learning

In our final capstone project, students will be able to apply their newly acquired talents in a collaborative, challenging environment, applying AI to an in depth project Examples include allocating resources for disaster relief, sketch recognition, or creating a website to recommend movies.

Fee and Program Dates

  • Session 1: July 22 – August 2
  • Classes meet 
    • Middle School Program: Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. –12:00 p.m.

AI Scholars (High School)

Inspirit AI offers an interdisciplinary, project-based artificial intelligence education taught by Stanford, MIT, and top university graduates

What do self-driving cars, Alexa, iPhone’s face recognition technology, and ChatGPT have in common? They are driven by modern advances in artificial intelligence. Whether you’re interested in law, healthcare, art, or economics, AI is poised to transform every discipline and industry in the future. AI is already all around us today, and by the end of the program, students will understand the underlying concepts and motivations behind technology such as computer vision, natural language processing, and neural networks.

In this course, we will explore the foundations of machine learning and explore different applications of machine learning models. In the first half of the course, students learn AI’s core technologies including applications, foundational concepts, and programming tools through live lectures and coding labs. Students will not only learn about different types of machine learning models, but also apply those models to real data sets. In the second half of the course, students will complete an instructor-led group project applying AI to the discipline of their choice (e.g., music, healthcare, astrophysics, finance, etc.), utilizing the programming skills they developed in the first half.

Please read more information about the high school program here.

Fee and Program Dates
