Learning that Inspires a Sense of Wonder...

Click here to view brochure for this year's camp

Our philosophy:

Minds in Motion is a week-long, hands-on summer enrichment program designed for students ages 7-13. Each week focuses on a single topic with lessons tailored to a variety of levels and learning styles. For example, we might illustrate the geometric concept of symmetry with an art project or dance choreography. Our goal is to provide a vibrant, supportive program where students can stretch their "mental muscles" and have fun!

Did you know it took thousands of experiments before Edison invented his light bulb? Discoveries we take for granted in math and science were developed over time by people who were both passionate and persistent. We'll spend time focusing on the journey that has taken place - one that is continuing in new fields today.

In our camps we encourage students to take risks, to tackle new concepts (even if they seem hard at first) and most of all to develop a sense of wonder while making new friends.

Our instructors bring over 40 years of teaching experience to this camp. Teaching is our passion, and we look forward to inspiring your child to grasp concepts and skills that are so vital to their future success!
