In our STEM learning program at ThinkBridge

—  Science, Technology, Engineering, and Art – our approach is on cognitive development and creative thinking. Laura Shain, past principal of Ocean Shore Elementary School, Pacifica, has said “Campers become so engaged in their own learning when they are inspired to think creatively. The thinking curriculum has campers making connections between divergent concepts in a way that really stretches their minds. The program is fun, different from other activities, and campers become motivated to use their skills and knowledge to demonstrate their thinking.”

 Check out the fun! Details for each element of the camp is available on tabs above.
Spark Creativity and Stretch the Mind

The ThinkBridge Summer Camp day is divided into four sections, each designed to challenge young campers and develop thinking skills. Campers are placed in small, age-based groups to ensure plenty of personal attention, friendly peer interaction, and the opportunity to explore new ideas. All group Instruction is supported by our terrific and energetic Volunteer Staff. Groups will rotate through each component, namely “thinking,” “math and strategic games,” “music” and the “STEM lab,” each morning.

Age/Grade Grouping

ThinkBridge Summer Camp is open to children grades 1st through 6th grade. Campers are divided into small groups based on age and grade.
