Our summer camp is designed to teach kids aged 5-14 both the technical and personal skills necessary to become innovators
Have Fun Learning
Campers will develop the technical skills necessary to fill the growing demand in the technology industry, as well as, the mindset necessary to become the leaders of tomorrow. Campers will spend their days learning how to use and develop future technology, cultivating their art skills, building things from scratch and engaging in wellness activities, such as yoga taught by talented local instructors. But most importantly, they will be having fun while doing it.
We believe that in the future every company will be a technology company. Therefore, regardless of the industry that our campers decide to join, technical skills will be crucial for success. At iCamp kids will learn about: Computer Programming (Coding), Robotics, Drones, 3D Modeling and Printing, and Augmented/Virtual Reality.
As software and machines take more and more of the jobs that were once reserved for humans, art and design skills will remain one of the hallmarks that set humans apart. Campers will learn about drawing, painting, ceramics, animation and digital design.
There is great value in being able to make something with your own two hands. This is a practical skill that will not only be valuable in ones personal life, but it also opens up a world of opportunity for entrepreneurs. Our campers will be able to dream up, design and build their own physical prototypes.
Innovators need more than just technical skills. To create new and novel solutions to problems, future innovators need to be able to look at the world differently. Additionally, they need to be able to effectively work together with others. Along with teaching kids about creativity, we will develop their soft-skills (e.g. communication, empathy and coaching).
As the population continues to grow, it will be the job of innovators to develop new ways of producing food more efficiently. At camp, kids will learn about the fundamentals of farming, as well as, its intersection with technology and what this means for the future. Campers will undertake an aquaponics project where they will raise fish and grow vegetables in a symbiotic environment.
One of the keys to success is to live a healthy lifestyle. Mental and physical wellbeing are essential for innovators. That is why we devote nearly a third of every day to wellness and mindfulness activities (e.g. yoga, meditation and sports) and spend at least half of every day outside. We want to lay the foundation for our campers to live healthy lives.
