Get ready for a week of brainteasing fun! This camp is all about figuring out complex puzzles! We will be tapping into our critical thinking skills to build resilience and problem-solving. Each day we will tackle a brainteaser and focus on a strategy of the day. Daily topics will include logic puzzles, word puzzles, number puzzles, strategy games, and more! Campers will be challenged with rebus riddles, survival dilemmas, and learn new games such as 24 and SET. Each camper is encouraged to come to camp with a positive can-do attitude. There will be a focus on collaboration and critical thinking. Our daily schedule will also include a “brain break” outdoors.
