Innovators, Inc.

Would your camper like to design their own city, craft a secret identity, run their own restaurant or travel through history? Then you’ve come to the right place! Each week, our campers are tasked with a unique theme-based challenge, in which they must learn as much as they can about the week’s topic and collaborate to find a solution. All challenges combine elements of science, technology and creative arts, with a healthy dose of teamwork. And because our stories and themes change weekly, your camper can enjoy multiple sessions without ever doing the same thing twice.

Back for 2022: Innovators, Inc. includes a weekly field trip or expert workshop to bring the theme to life! We will update this page with each week’s destination or workshop partner as they are confirmed. Previous experiences include the International Spy Museum, Zava Zone Trampoline & Indoor Adventure Park,  and a culinary workshop with Tiny Chefs.  You will receive more information regarding your camper’s expert workshop or field trip’s date, context, and expectations prior to their week of programming.

Learn about the Headfirst Philosophy

Why We're Different

For each week of camp, we create a dynamic, immersive story based on a theme, such as Cooking, Forensics or Architecture. Then, through the world we’ve created, campers enjoy activities and games designed to strengthen qualities like grit and optimism. To the kids, it feels like camp. But we know we’re accomplishing more. Check out our unique Super Six curriculum to learn how we help build character through story and play.

Swim & Water Play

We are excited to share that this camp includes recreational swim! Recreational swim is an opportunity to engage in safe, supervised free swim and pool-based games. Campers will be assessed for use of permitted areas of the pool. We are working with our school partners to maximize the number of days in the pool for your camper – our goal is daily recreational swim and we will let you know before camp if that is not the case.
