Summer Camp in Austin, TX

Welcome to the Neuron Garage™, the kids summer camp in Austin, TX that helps campers discover their potential through open-ended, hands-on building challenges.  Our summer campers take recycled materials and are empowered to find solutions in a fun, collaborative atmosphere.

When your child can think creatively, work collaboratively, and respond resiliently, they can do anything.

At the Neuron Garage summer camp, your children repurpose recycled materials to solve fun, weekly building challenges. Along the way, they build the foundation for a vibrant and expansive future.

Help your kids build the foundation for a vibrant and expansive future this year at summer camp!.

The problems your kids tackle at Neuron Garage summer camp in Austin, TX 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 team guides your children to tap into their own genius and 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 at camp 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 impactful, hands-on, childhood experiences of co-founder, Sam Reed, that led to a successful entrepreneurial career. Read Our Story.

Some kids come to camp for just one week and have a great experience. However, our team notices the most growth from the children who come from multiple weeks. 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 multiple, convenient locations across 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.

My kiddos were so challenged and more importantly nurtured through the challenges! We’ll be back next year!

Our son, age 6, did 4 weeks this past summer. He loved it and asked if he can sign up next summer for the whole summer. We can tell he picked up a lot of great creative and problem solving skills. The staff are great and super supportive.

My 7-year-old son attended three weeks this summer and he loved it.  It was the perfect blend of play time and think time.
