One summer growing up, my husband dreamed of building a boat. Day after day, he and a friend sweated and tinkered in the garage. They envisioned the boat. They biked to the store for supplies. The tried, failed, tried again. They worked together, remaining curious and creative, while they built that boat — and a foundation of resilience. Eventually, that boat floated and my husband hasn’t backed down from a challenge since.
Today, we’ve recaptured the magic of that summer garage as a camp for kids aged 5 to 12. Neuron Garage is a safe, supportive summer camp environment for where children develop the foundation for a vibrant future through building with their hands. The program is enhanced with best-practices I’ve gleaned from studying neuroscience and education at Dartmouth, as well as over a decade of experience in the classroom. Summer is a magical time for children to discover themselves and their world. Neuron Garage is a fun, child-centered camp where building with recycled materials gives kids the chance to guide their own challenges, equips them with tools to overcome anxiety and frustration, and sets them free to explore, create, and collaborate with confidence.
See you next summer!
