At iCamp our mission is to give our campers the tools they need to become life-long learners, problem solvers and innovators
Technology develops at an exponential rate. And kids have the ability to keep up with this development, as long as they are given the opportunity. We want to give each child this opportunity.
We believe that in the future every company will be a technology company. Regardless of the industry that our campers decide to join, technical skills will be crucial for success. Especially, if they plan to disrupt that industry with innovative technology that they have dreamt up themselves.
At iCamp, campers will be exposed to the technology poised to disrupt society over the next decade. But more importantly, they will be encouraged to think about the ethical and responsible applications of these technologies.
Campers will learn what it means to be an innovator and entrepreneur. Then they will be given the tools necessary to execute their vision.
Innovators Camp was founded by year-round residents, Lulu and Brendan Manley, in the summer of 2018. The couple was looking for a meaningful way to contribute to their community when they came up with the idea. They have two young kids who they are raising in Southampton, which makes this project very personal for them. Their goal is to create a STEAM learning center that will benefit both full-time and part-time Hamptons children alike. With the help of their amazing team, Lulu and Brendan have put together a lab and program that both parents and children find fascinating. This program provides campers fun and exciting ways to develop the skills they will need for their future.
