If I could give this place a no star review I would. The financial burden this place has put on our family is terrible. Do you think they care. Absolutely not! I have been dealing with a Mohammed. At first he seem genuine to our struggle. I am a mom of 4 children having troubles making ends meet. One of my oldest got nominated for this program by his teacher. We were so excited that he would be able to have this great opportunity. Dispite our efforts to fundraise by the dead line we were still 1500 short. I could not come up with the money and Mohammed said he would give us an additional 500.00 leaving us still short 1000.00. after this you have no options. You can not send your child because you still owe money. I have tried to deal with this company and they keep refusing to refund me the monies I have paid. Instead I receive a response from Mohammed that it very insensitive to our situation. Stating that he gave us extra scholarship to help us with the cost. Yes you might have but that money was never used by us so your company still has it. This did not benefit my son at all. What a SCAM this place is. If I had the money to hire a lawyer this would be one company I would sue. They ended up pocketing my money and saying sorry this is not our problem. Oh and Mohammed wanted to call me to explain why he is not going to refund me the money I paid. If you pull any of my calls with this company you can see how many times I stated I would like to cancel but they are sweet talkers don't disclose anything until you can not cancel. I will be sure the post this on social media. I have already filed a complaint with the BBB. Do you think the company had responded to them. Haha No! I should of listened to the few people who said that if there is a real stem program for kids that you will NOT HAVE TO PAY OUT OF POCKET. Be aware guys! Scammers at their finest...

Before attending, my granddaughter was very apprehensive. She had never been away from family & friends for an extended period, & she did not know ANYONE attending. Even on arrival day, she didn’t want to get out of the car because she was nervous. By the time the week was over, she was excited to tell us that now that she is an alumna, she can’t wait to return next year! Talk about a TRUE 180. This is MAJOR for a child who has become shyer as she grows. She is so smart & has so much to offer, & this experience helped to build her self-confidence & give her the tools needed to step out of her comfort zone. At the end of the program, we were exposed to the fruits of the scholars’ labor as they became actors/actresses who presented excerpts of their learning. Besides the speaking parts, they used PPT, handouts, & props such as the robot they built, the CSI evidence, & medical skills they learned. It was GREAT!!! We look forward to next summer.

Envision is an awesome program. My child enjoyed all of the classes that were offered. They built working, moving robots, worked a crime scene and did an escape room. He left the program with a sense of pride and accomplishment. He discovered that he really enjoys planning and building and constructing and at the age of 9 he says he believes he is going to pursue a career in engineering. He is looking forward to attending again next summer. I would highly recommend this opportunity for any young person!

The program or its design sounded great (CSI, Engineering, Medicine) but the advisors and execution of it made it bad. For example, we were supposed to do an escape room but ended up doing late and forced to finish it under time pressure. When the time ran out (even if we didn't finish) we were forced to move on. In the end we only obtained two numbers even though we were supposed to unscramble four numbers we would have been given. So because of bad time management on the part of the staff/advisors, we didn't get the full experience and were also late for dinner. We also had high expectations for time and self management skills (so-called leadership skills) but ended up only having spent 20 min. max on them. In addition, due to the poor planning and management (with so many groups and students), the time we spent on dissecting the beef heart was hijacked to only 15 minutes as opposed to one hour by other groups; and in the "How to put on a sling and splint" session, because they didn't have the sling for us to practice, we ended up doing only the splint portion.... Overall, I feel that my experience was being shortcut and didn't have as great an experience as expected, because of the poor execution and planning by the staff/advisors. It is certainly not worth $2300 that my parents paid for.

My son had a great experience at this camp. He stayed in a dorm and ate cafeteria food, attended presentations in a classroom setting, and did experiments in various lab settings. He came home with a new view of STEM professions and the independence and confidence to do further exploration. Highly recommended!!

The experience was fantastic! It really gave my 11 year old son a chance to work with other students that he normally would not have the chance to work with. The staff were great and the sights the students saw were relevant to their projects.

Watching my son at the Mock Trial, I noticed that he got over his apprehension of public speaking and did an excellent job and was very confident. He learned more about the profession and furthered his interest in becoming a lawyer.

Great opportunity for high school students to gain confidence and grow a better understanding of college life experiences and a true hands on experience to gain knowledge in an area that they are truly passionate about.

This is a fantastic program for kids of all ages. The experience has given great insight into the different venues of science and engineering. My daughter feels her possibilities are endless and achievable. She came back with more confidence and a ton of new friends.

My son loved his experience with Envision. He made new friends, explored various STEM fields and spent time learning to become more independent. When asked if he would do it again, he resoundingly said YES!
