Summer Camps

Dream Tank Summer Camp

Come experience the ultimate innovator’s playground and design-thinking hub!

This entrepreneurial, action-packed accelerator offers the unique opportunity for kids and teens ages 8-19 to creatively rise to their potential, follow their dreams and share their ideas to shape the future.

In the course of 5 days, camp members will embark on a series of missions, that combine the art of dreaming and real-world application. Through possibility, play, and wonder, we will face the social and environmental challenges we face today, using the framework of the United Nations’ 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development.

At the end of each camp session, our DreamMakers will be center stage for Dream Tank Mission Launch, a presentation opportunity where they get to share their ideas with the public, parents and impact entrepreneur community. These will take place on last Friday of your session from 4pm-6pm.

If your child has a love for visual art, theater arts, music, film/photography, crafts, life hacks, and inventions, this accelerator is for them.

This is a special accelerator in partnership with Kaleidoscope, a new artist and tech collaborative in North Boulder. Mentors from Kaleidoscope and experts from the community will be present throughout the week. You’ll be making art and products to auction off at the pitch event and fundraiser at the end of the week.

The Future of Boulder + Blockchain, Gaming & Tech

August 5 – 9, 2019

Ages: 8-16

Time: M-F 9:00am-3:30pm

Location: The Museum of Boulder

Price: $395

If you see Boulder as a city of innovation, consciousness and open space, yet know there is still a way to go to truly become a city that has fully addressed poverty, diversity, sustainability, clean energy and more, this is a great accelerator to introduce that to your child.  We will look at what a privilege it is living in a city this rich with resources, education, and access to tech, and come up with a business idea that helps Boulder solve the SDGs. We will apply the use of STEAM skills and tools, especially tech in all aspects, including gaming, blockchain, climate science, aerospace, and diversity/inclusion games, to come up with solutions. Includes help with individual projects and group design challenges presented by leaders in Boulder. Mentors and experts in sustainable development, software, gaming, aerospace, climate science, blockchain and more will be present throughout the week.

Be a group of mission-driven kids and teens who shows Boulder – and the world – how to redesign our city for the future.  

We are partnering with the Museum of Boulder to provide an immersive, engaging experience that celebrates the spirit of Boulder.
