Engineering Summer Camps & Programs for Kids in the Bay Area

Engineering is always a camper favorite, and Summer 2023 will be our most exciting engineering camp yet! Engineers at Camp Brainy Bunch will participate in hands-on, collaborative design challenges that will call upon their creativity and critical thinking skills. 

 Visit the curriculum tab below for more details!

In summer 2023, teams will utilize the Engineering Design Process as they work to build alumni favorites such as water rockets, ziplines, and structures.

Prepare for your engineer to be challenged to think about the world in a different way throughout this exciting week.

Rising 1st-2nd graders

Our youngest engineers will get a first-hand introduction to the Engineering Design Process. From the start, students will be immersed in an environment of inquiry, discovery, and risk-taking. We hope that our projects don’t work the first time, so we can learn from our mistakes and make them better. Challenges include the physics of rockets, exploring sound waves, flying their own kites, and blowing giant bubbles!

Rising 3rd-6th graders

Young engineers will be building amazing mechanical cars, building zip-lines, studying potential and kinetic energy through creating roller coasters, and flying their own hot air balloon designs. Along the way, students will learn about how the field of engineering is solving the problems of today and the future. Each new day starts with a “Dream Job” connection, introducing engineers to different fields within science such as robotics, chemistry, and even animation.

We film an Engineering Conference on the last day of camp, where campers will show off their creations and explain their design process.
