And as usual, any changes to camp dates is FREE.
We really hope to run in-person camp as planned. However, if we are unable to do so because of state or local guidelines, then Imagineerz will provide you with a choice of:
When we polled parents, they spoke loud and clear that they really wanted in-person camps for their kids this summer. So, we are investing a lot of time and resources towards making that happen.

Besides planning for camp, we have two other initiatives we are working on:
Imagineerz@Home: We are creating video content for parents and guardians to use with their children at home to allow kids to continue developing their i-Can! mindsets all year long, while pursuing creative and fun activities! More information about this coming soon! Please subscribe to our mailing list for updates.
Imagineerz@School: We are working on developing a video-based “plug and play” curriculum that schools can use to bring STEM and social-emotional learning to their classrooms. We have several schools already implementing this program, including Imai Elementary in Mountain View, St. Nicholas Catholic School in Los Altos Hills, and Chico Country Day School. See details here.
