We want to do all we can to support the Imagineerz community through these uncertain times. We have a very flexible refund policy – we will provide 100% refunds of camp tuition fee for any cancellations all the way up to June 1st.
And as usual, any changes to camp dates is FREE.
We really do hope to run summer camp as planned, however, if we are unable to do so because of state/local guidelines or any other changes in the current situation, then Imagineerz will provide you with a choice of:
When we polled parents, they spoke loud and clear that they really wanted physical camps for their kids this summer. So, we are putting in a lot of time and resources towards making physical camp happen.

Besides planning for camp, we have two awesome initiatives we are currently working on:
Imagineerz@Home: We are creating video content for parents/guardians to use with their children in a home setting to allow kids to continue developing their i-Can! mindsets at home while pursuing creative and fun activities! More information about this coming soon! Please subscribe to our mailing list for more communication about this.
Imagineerz@School: We are working on developing a video-based “plug and play” curriculum that schools can use to bring Growth Mindset and Stanford Design Thinking to their schools through STEAM challenges. We have many schools implementing this program including Huff Elementary in Mountain View, De Vargas Elementary in Cupertino, and St. Nicholas. See details here.
