Amusement Parks

From roller coasters and Ferris wheels to carnival rides and games, this session is equal parts play and design. Campers will get hands on, turning trash into treasure, as they construct from cardboard and other materials that would normally end up in their recycling bins.

June 19-23

Rides & Roller Coasters

What kind of adventure park can you create with toilet paper tubes and tape – and loads of other recycled goods? This week, campers will design, build, and refine miniature rides and rollercoasters.

Secret Agents

Campers team up as Secret Agents this session with a new mission each week. Using cardboard, masking tape, and whatever else they can find in their recycling bins, along with plenty of creativity and perseverance, they will build ziplines, rockets and submarines to transport top-secret messages, facing exciting obstacles along the way.

What Our Parents Are Saying

Neuron Garage has an amazing mission which inspires the kids. The counselors are mature, treat the kids with respect, and truly care about their development through the summer. The owners are phenomenal and work to make the camp fun and educational each year. This is the first time that my son said, “I can’t wait for camp!

This is our second year. Last year we did 1 week, and this year 3 wks. My child (9 yo) wishes he could do a 4th week! He returns home so excited to show me what he created! I know he is getting a great challenge in a nurturing environment. Thank you for creating this camp!

The boys are doing the AM camp this week and loving it! It has been a really bright spot in their day. Thank you so much for finding a way to make virtual camp fun and engaging.

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.

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

My kids loved this creative problem-solving camp. They learned but were having so much fun they didn’t know it. The director is smart, creative and so caring. Would definitely recommend.

I am very pleased with the counselor engagement, guiding the kids to push themselves but within boundaries of what they are comfortable doing. My son has blossomed and is engaging with other campers. He has new found self-confidence and is taking pride in the projects he is completing.

My camper loved this camp. It’s designed to be fun for her, and I like the big life lessons it teaches that go beyond a week of building.

Our daughter loved her camp experience. She was excited and locked in the entire week — even through the optional sessions. Our experience far and away exceeded our expectations. We would definitely sign up again and highly recommend this experience without reservation. We also loved that you incorporated physical activity, which the children often miss through these online experiences.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about this camp!! It was absolutely my son’s favorite camp last year and we will be back this year! We love it!

I can’t even describe how impressed I’ve been with Neuron Garage! My son loves it, and we just signed up for two more weeks. Your facilitators are incredibly engaging, and I’m impressed by the level of social integration you’ve been able to achieve in just a short amount of time.
