When your child can think creatively, work collaboratively, and respond resiliently, they can do anything.
At the Neuron Garage, your children repurpose recycled materials to solve fun, weekly building challenges. Along the way, they build the foundational skills for a vibrant and expansive future.
The problems your children tackle are open-ended, with no set solutions. And the materials they use are simple and multi-purpose. This combination unlocks a level of engagement and resourcefulness that is both joyful and transformational.
Our thoughtfully trained guides teach your children how to tap into their own genius and how to collaborate with their peers for inspiration and support. Campers learn how to give and receive feedback from other campers, how to push themselves to create their best work, and how to recover from frustration and setbacks in order to continue forward. As they build with their hands, these experiences build confidence and resilience, propelling them onto their next challenge — whether at camp or beyond.
The building is FUN. But, it takes energy and focus, so we make sure your child’s day has plenty of time to re-energize with reflection and play. See what a typical day is like.
While your child is elbow-deep in recycled materials, having fun building with friends and delighting in summertime freedoms, they will be benefiting from a highly intentional program that combines what co-founder Kaylie Reed learned studying neuroscience at Dartmouth and spending over a decade in the classroom, with the hands-on, impactful childhood experiences of co-founder, Sam Reed.

Some kids come for one week. Some stay for the whole summer, as each week’s challenge is different, and each week offers another opportunity for your children to discover what they are capable of and strengthen their foundation.
Having had hundreds of happy campers at the Neuron Garage, we are so confident your child will enjoy our camp, that we offer our “Garage Guarantee”: If your child does not want to come for a second week, the first week is free. Seriously.
With 5 convenient locations in Austin, just a deposit to hold your space, early drop-off, extended hours until 6pm and a flexible cancellation policy, Neuron Garage is not only a place for your children to discover their strength, it is a great experience for the whole family.
