Summary

Due to the high volume of interest for our Toronto program we have added another week this July!

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.
