Choose from four locations throughout Austin and seven STEAM and technology-focused themes.

Thinkery Camp programs provide a creative, safe and challenging environment for campers to learn and grow—and have a whole lot of fun while they're doing it!

In each weeklong camp, Pre-K to 5th grade campers engage in playful, hands-on learning activities that develop critical thinking skills in a collaborative environment.  Camps focus on science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM), with a variety of fun mental and physical challenges that activate campers’ creativity and stimulate their natural curiosity.

Campers explore questions of “how” and “why” through immersive, interactive learning experiences designed to keep them moving, thinking and creating.
