Camp Imagineerz is a unique bay area summer camp for entering 1st-4th graders. Our goal is help children become positive and confident makers.
Put simply, we help children learn the idea that our own attitudes and reactions have the power to change the outcome. We explore this concept in various ways — stories, games, activities, and hands-on creativity studio projects. We show children how to identify ‘STOP signs’, give them techniques to problem-solve and ignite the spark that makes them go ‘aha, i think i can actually do this’. Its as simple as that. And to top it off, our campers have a summer filled with outstanding fun and epic adventures.
While we receive inquiries all the way from pre-school children to classes for adults, Imagineerz works best for rising 1st to 4th graders. This is because kids in this age group are developmentally at the optimum age to make the learnings really resonate.
We most certainly do. Morning extended care starting at 8.30am is free, and afternoon extended care is available upto 6pm for a nominal charge.
Our counselor to camper ratio runs no more than 1:8, and depending on the activity is often less than 8.
There is absolutely no reason to worry. In the spirit of empowering children, we let campers choose their own groups on the 1st day of camp. Simply ensure your camper is there on time on Monday morning when groups are formed (Hey, now that gives them a good reason to finish breakfast on time. If they arrive after groups are formed, they might not get the groups they want!)
Unless there is a specific reason not to, we let the children stay in the groups they selected. Note: We will have mixed age classes – there will be campers from 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades in each of the classrooms.
We have two exciting themes this year and children can join us for one or two weeks.
From our experience, we have seen that two weeks gives us time to teach, reinforce and truly demonstrate the value of the the ‘i-can’ mindset to campers. So, our recommendation is to sign up for both weeks if possible. You can choose any combination of weeks that work for you.
If two weeks is not an option, one week provides a great foundation too!
A plan for an epic summer, a sunny smile and lots of energy. (also a water bottle, sunscreen, and a change of clothes because sometimes our ‘fun’ can get messy).
No. Please send a lunch and morning snack with all campers.
For campers staying for extended care, please be sure to send an afternoon snack.
