The charter schools in the area are not included in the Elmira school district.

“I do know that Finn Academy was not included in the Elmira city school district because it’s a charter school,” said Burt

This year the camp offers a brand new course titled “Fast and Furious Engines” to give students basic knowledge on how engines operate. The program will offer take-home skits to kids that opt-out of in-person programming.
