Course/Title: The Science of Gratitude and Kindness

Course/Title: Abstract Sculptures

Description: When a train goes off track, that’s bad; but when an art goes abstract, it’s cause for wonder, awe, and intrigue.

We’ll explore impactful pieces from history and spend lots of time creating. Fun for all ages!

Brain Age: 1st-8th


Course/Title: I Art Math

Description: Both math and art have the ability to communicate beyond words. As close relatives, they hold more in common than you realize, and both work to define and express our existence.

Brain Age: 1st-8th

Brain Age: 4th-8th

Disclaimers: N/A


Course/Title: Musical Engineering

Brain Age: 1st-8th

Disclaimers: Although we’re discussing survival techniques for a fictional character, these techniques are intended for human survival, and some students may be sensitive to the topic. Even though this course makes references to the world of Minecraft, this is NOT a computer-based or technology course.

How long are the courses?
Each course meets for 70 minutes/day for the whole week (M-F). There are four classes per day that campers
attend every day. Each class has unique curriculum written by Camp Pursuit teachers. Every class is taught by a
certified, experienced teacher who has been trained to work with gifted & high-achieving students–including
mixed-aged classroom models.

What is the quality of the courses?
All courses are submitted via proposal by teachers. Courses are selected based on relation to STEAM education
and meeting the needs of a mixed-age classroom. Every course offers curriculum that is both fun and challenging.

What is Brain Age?
We provide brain age recommendations on our courses so that you can make a decision based on your child’s intellectual maturity, not an arbitrary factor like their birth date or grade level in school” (from The NuMinds
Glossary).

What is Mixed-Age Learning?
Also called the “blended classroom” or “One Room Schoolhouse” model, a mixed-age learning means there are no
arbitrary age restrictions placed on classes, just recommendations. We believe children function at unique and
individual brain ages. For example, a second grader may have the mathematical skills of a fifth grader. Because
courses are selected based on the camper’s passions/interests, they will attend with other students, ranging from
1st-8th grade, that are interested in the same pursuits. All teachers receive specialized training on how to work
with differentiated curriculum inside of a mixed-age classroom.

My child has to miss a day, can he/she make it up?

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.

About Camp Pursuit

Camp Pursuit is the only high-achievement day camp comprised of mixed-age, S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Humanities, Mathematics) classes for incoming 1st – 8th graders.  Students get to build their own summer camp by choosing FOUR COURSES of study for each week.  Each class has unique curriculum written by Camp Pursuit teachers.  Every class is taught by a certified, experienced teacher who has been trained to work with gifted & high-achieving students–including mixed-aged classroom models.  To give a better picture, here’s a sample schedule:

How do we choose our own courses? ​ There are 3 Easy Steps to picking the right course:

  1. First, know all courses are open to all incoming 1st through 8th graders. Some courses have a “Recommended Brain Age” which means that while your kid may be a 1st grader, he or she thinks about a topic at an advanced level.  For example, we have seen classes where a first grader and an eighth grader work side-by-side on computer programming.
  2. Next, find out what your kid is interested in. The whole purpose of the camp is to allow him or her to pursue individual passions.  This is not an academic prep camp; instead, it’s a testing ground to get kids fired up about careers or areas of study they normally wouldn’t be exposed to.
  3. Finally, see if there are any glaring reasons why age could be a barrier. For example, some classes require fine micro motor skills that just haven’t developed.  Don’t let this stop you, one of our co-founders put his 1st grade daughter in an Ed Emberly drawing course last year, and although her project wasn’t as refined as the other students, she loved the course and still talks about it a year later.  However, he didn’t put her in the Mythology course because he was ​ ​uncomfortable with all of the “relations” those promiscuous gods and goddesses have!

Camp Pursuit Cancellation Policy.​  The $50 registration fee is non-refundable.  In the event you must cancel your reservation, you will receive a refund as defined herein: Cancellation notice must be submitted via email to

NuMindsAdmin@numien.com.  Refund will be issued in the same manner payment was made.  100% of tuition paid (this does not include the $50 Registration Fee) will be refunded if written notice is received no later than four weeks prior to session start date.  Cancellations received within four or less weeks of session start date forfeit full tuition. Cancellation requests due to illness or accident prior to the camp session start date require a physician’s written verification. Upon receipt of verification, we will issue a full refund of tuition paid (not including the $50 registration fee).  Cancellations due to personal reasons, etc. will not receive a refund.  Camp participants who leave during a session will not receive a refund, regardless of circumstances.  We reserve the right to cancel a session date if participation numbers are not adequate. In the event of cancelled course, you will be notified four weeks prior to the camp start date.  You may select an alternative session date, or you may request a full refund.

If you love what we do and want to support us, here are a few ways.
➔ Subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on social media. Help us spread the word!.
➔ Mention us to your friends. No advertisement could ever replace the value of word-of-mouth.
➔ 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.
➔ 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.
➔ Send us your ideas! Many of our ideas have spurned from everyday conversations with those who see a
need.
➔ Provide a financial donation. All donated money goes directly to course expenses–pencils, paper, supplies,
etc. or to scholarship funds to help other children participate in our programs!
