Leadership Summer Camps & Programs for Kids in the Bay Area

At Camp Brainy Bunch, we believe that all students are leaders. Leaders are not necessarily the loudest or the most forceful, but people who tap into their passions in order to make the world a better place. Our leadership program will help your child identify and explore their passions, and channel them into something tangible.

At Camp Brainy Bunch, leadership activities are designed to encourage students to explore their own values, grow their confidence in group settings, work as a team, and pursue what they care most about.

The Learning!

Rising 1st - 2nd Graders
Rising 3rd - 4th Graders
Rising 5th - 6th Graders
Prepare for an incredible adventure! Our youngest leaders are creating their very own superhero identities, complete with awesome masks and capes, all while diving into the heart of what it means to be a hero every day.

Through engaging skits, thrilling games, and captivating stories, they'll grasp the power of Support – being a super friend, Integrity – doing what's right no matter what, and Resilience – bouncing back stronger from tough times. They'll also explore how Empathy allows them to understand others' feelings and how Responsibility means taking care of our world.

Join us on this exhilarating journey of self-discovery and empowerment! Together, we'll uncover the secrets to becoming real-life superheroes. Are you ready to embark on this thrilling quest?

Let's do this!

Intern & Senior leaders will learn how they can become  leaders at school, in their community, and in the wider world. Leaders will identify the leadership skills they already have, and set goals for how to build on those traits throughout the week. Through a variety of public speaking activities, projects, and teamwork challenges they will leave with more confidence and understanding about the impact they can make on the world. 

But that's not all—our campers will be empowered to raise their voices in advocacy for a cause of their choosing. The culmination of their leadership journey will be captured on film as they develop and present their own campaigns. It's not just a week of learning; it's a week of empowerment, as they discover their passions and their own personal voice. Students will leave with more confidence and understanding about the impact they can make on the world.

*Interns and Seniors may have some overlapping activities but Interns are in a different grouping keeping in mind the level of support they may need
