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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
