Summary

The Young Innovators Program Helps Youth Build Big Ideas!

Future Design School’s Young Innovators Camp brings together kids ages 10–14 for a fun, high-energy week that has over the past two years has empowered hundreds of campers in dozens of cities to realize their own innovation potential.

Not your average summer camp — kids are empowered to develop their creative genius while learning about design thinking and experiencing their own entrepreneurial journey.

Developed by successful entrepreneurs, software engineers and educators — kids are equipped with important skillsets and engage in real-world experience that transforms both their perception of themselves and the world around them. All campers are given the opportunity to pitch their solutions to a live audience at the end of the week and publicly celebrate their inventions.

Kids can look forward to advice from successful entrepreneurs, exciting activities, making new friends, and most importantly; developing a greater sense of confidence in their ability to creatively problem solve. We know firsthand that every child possesses incredible creative capacity and we strive to unlock that potential.
