In this course,you’ll kindle (or re-kindle) that spark of curiosity and passion for Math beyond the “drudgery” of formalized step-by-step curriculum. You’ll jump throughout history and around the globe, from Ben Franklin’s magic squares (USA) to Blaise Pascal’s Triangle (France) to Ramanujan’s algebra puzzles (India) to Lo Shu puzzles (China), and much more. You’ll also put the “magic” in the Math, literally, as you learn, practice and perform Math-based magic tricks.

Is there any Financial Assistance Available?

We are proud and fortunate to have a close partnership with Education Unbound, a non-profit whose mission is to support high potential students in financial need. Education Unbound, as well as other generous sponsors, have pledged a certain number of full scholarships for each week of Camp Pursuit. Scholarships will be awarded via an online application process. The first scholarship application window runs from January 15 to March 1. Recipients will be notified by March 15. You can find the application HERE.

If you feel called to give a week of Camp Pursuit to someone in need of financial assistance, consider making a donation to Education Unbound. You can add a note to your donation indicating your desire for the funds to be used toward an additional Camp Pursuit scholarship.

Do you accept volunteers?

We love our volunteers, and they help our camp run so smoothly.  We accept volunteers between the ages of 14-17.  A volunteer application and sign-up form will be released in late March. When the volunteer application becomes available, a link will be posted on this page, on our social media, and sent to friends via our email newsletter.

 

What does a class look like?

Each class has unique curriculum written by Camp Pursuit teachers.  Every class is taught by a qualified, passionate teacher who has been trained to work with a variety of students, including gifted & high-achieving students in mixed-aged classroom models.

 

Why should I choose Camp Pursuit?

That’s a really good question.  NuMinds was founded by a couple of zany, passionate educators who gather a bunch of excellent teachers together and try to come up with the coolest courses possible.  We also absolutely love what we do!  We have a time-tested proprietary curriculum model that we use for all of our courses, and we only hire the best teachers–plus we pay them the best we can.  We recognize that Camp Pursuit is more than the sum of its parts.  We love learning!  We put your child’s safety first and do our absolute best to ensure a smooth experience.  We have puppet shows and guitars and we write our own songs.  We see the inherent quality in each child and celebrate their individuality and uniqueness.  We built Camp Pursuit under the framework: “What type of camp would I have enjoyed as a kid?”  What else…did I mention the puppet shows?

How can I support what NuMinds does?

If you love what we do and want to support us, here are a few ways.  And thank you for even reading this far–you mean the world to us!

  1. Subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on social media.  This helps us reach a wider audience and share what we do.
  2. Take just a minute to mention us to your friends.  No advertisement could ever replace the value of word-of-mouth.
  3. Ask your local school or PTA organization if they would like to host a NuMinds program.  Just put us in contact, and we’ll handle the rest.
  4. Volunteer at one of our events.  We’re always in need of help, and we’ll pass the savings on to you in the form of discounted admission.
  5. Send us your ideas!  Many of our ideas have spurned from everyday conversations with those who see a need.
  6. Provide a financial donation.  All donated money goes directly to course expenses–pencils, paper, supplies, etc.
  7. Thank the universe for all the blessings in your life, and then recognize the value of the very breath in your lungs.  Be happy and grateful–making the world a better place!

About NuMinds

NuMinds creates engaging, mixed-age STEAM programs throughout the year. From full-day enrichment events, to week-long academic camps, and dynamic training for both parents and teachers, we strive to fuel the “Edvolution” in thinking and learning for the 21st century.

Brilliant young minds don’t always get all the intellectual nutrition they need from their daily diet of school and extra-curriculars. Our co-founders were driven by the vision that NuMinds could provide a layer of enrichment beyond the school day, where real, inspired learning creates the conditions for lifelong curiosity and self-development:

Real ​– our programs extend beyond basic academic needs into the realm of enrichment, where a learner’s authentic engagement with ideas, processes and products is paramount.

Inspired​ –our programs derive from our own sense of inspiration and are focused on developing a learner’s own passions and interests.

Learning​ –our programs provide new knowledge, insight and wisdom that is valuable to the learner’s and the    world’s development and advancement.
