The Imagineerz Mindset:
It all begins with the Imagineerz mindset – a positive, zestful approach to life. In child-friendly language, the Imagineerz mindset is represented as:
i-can – Believe you can
i-do – Work hard and persist
If you hear your camper starting to talk about goals and thinking ‘How can I?’ instead of ‘Can I?’, you know that’s the Imagineerz mindset in action.
The Imagineerz Toolbox:
On the way to achieving goals, there are bound to be roadblocks. The Imagineerz toolbox provides children with strategies to overcome these. We don’t just say ”try harder” or “be persistent”, we know that’s easier said than done. We show campers how by teaching them a variety of problem-solving strategies.
The Imagineerz toolbox is composed of two tracks:
Personal “i-can” track:
Problem-solving strategies for personal obstacles
(“It’s too hard. But I will focus on just the next baby step”)
Social “i-can” track:
Problem-solving strategies for social situations
(“I don’t agree with her. But I am going to listen to her perspective first”)
