Creativity Camp 1.0: June 7-11, 2021

This camp is best for ages 11–14, either first-time campers or those who have only attended camp for one or two years. During the week, campers will learn about the creative process and practice engaging and exercising their creativity through hands-on experiences. If you are 14 and you have never been to camp before, then this one is for you. If you are 14 and have attended camp before, then you may want to consider the more challenging Creativity Camp 2.0 (see below). Space is limited to 16 campers. 

Theme

This year’s theme is: Children’s Story. Campers will work in teams to create their own children’s story and express it in their own: words, photos, illustrations, video, audio, or some other way.

Schedule

Monday–Thursday: 9 am to 3 pm (bring your own lunch). Leaders stay until 3:30 pm to debrief the day. Friday is 9 am to 9 pm. Friday dinner is provided for students: 5–7 pm. Friday show for parents and friends: 7 pm.

Sign Up Now

Cost for Creativity Camp 1.0 is $289 per camper.






Creativity Camp 2.0: June 21-25, 2021

This camp is best for campers who have attended Creativity Camp before and/or are aged 14–19. This camp will be the more advanced of the two and will builds on the basics of Camp 1.0. Expect to push the limits of what you can do. Come ready for a challenge. Space is limited to 16 campers. 

Theme

This year’s theme is: Advertising. Teams will work together to create marketing and communication products for a company (real or fictitious). We will leverage storytelling, video, design, and audio production to sell products and services to the world.

Schedule

Monday–Thursday: 9 am to 4 pm (bring your own lunch). Leaders stay until 4:30 pm to debrief the day. Friday is 9 am to 9 pm. Friday dinner is provided for students: 5–7 pm. Friday show for parents and friends: 7 pm.

Signing Up and The Waiting List

In recent years we have had a waiting list, so we encourage campers to sign up early to reserve your spot. If you don’t get your first choice, and you are in the 13–15 year old range, you may be given the option to switch to another camp if your first choice camp is full.

“Creativity Camp helped me grow as a person, learn about what goes on during the process of creativity, and will highly benefit me during future projects.”
Rachel B

“Creativity Camp was super fun. My favorite parts were the QuickFire Challenges and the way the team worked together to finish our project by Friday.”

Happy Camper from Creativity Camp 2014

“Collaboration generates amazing energy. Entering into the creative process together brings wonder and surprise every time.”

“I’m a writer and mostly work alone. Creativity Labs feed my relational, playful sides. And each of the labs I’ve participated in has given me a tool—sometimes just a word or image—to get me past that nasty place called Stuck.”

“Working through the challenges at Creativity Labs has paid off for me as a photographer. This experience has changed the way I look through my lens. I’m seeing light, shape, line and texture in a whole new way.”

icon-Interact
Creativity is a skill. You get better by practicing it. Together we challenge each other to be our best.
icon-Process
Creativity Camp is more about the process than the product. You will put tools in your toolbox that will carry you through your entire career.
icon-Play
If it’s not fun, you’re not doing it right. Kids are naturally creative. Stay playful and see what happens.
icon-Mental-Flexibility
The hallmark of the creative person is mental flexibility. This is where you learn it.
icon-Question
You can’t find good solutions unless you ask the right questions. Learn how to keep the conversation going and explore the possibilities.
icon-To-Do
Steve Jobs once said, “Real artists ship.” The creative life is not for pie-in-the-sky idealists, it’s for people who actually deliver.
