Q: How is Camp Pursuit responding to Covid-19?

We partner with local organizations to deliver Camp Pursuit, which means we provide safety guidelines and best practices for all in-person learning; however, each organization has the legal right or obligation to modify these protocols to meet local, state, or national guidelines. If you are considering an in-person camp, and would like to know more about the local safety protocols, please contact us at hello@numien.com and we'll put you in contact with the local entity.  

If you're concerned about in-person camps being cancelled, please don't be. We offer virtual options in addition to the in-person camp experience. Plus, we're super flexible, ready to move from in-person to virtual if needed.

If your local school or organization is hosting in-person, and you would like to be considered for virtual, please let us know. We will do our best to provide you access to virtual learning that help maintain the safety you desire.

Q: Who is Camp Pursuit for?

Camp Pursuit was created for any kid who is fueled by curiosity, loves to learn, and hungers for knowledge and engagement. Most camps are 1st-8th grade (some locations vary). Please confirm a camp’s age range on its information page.

Q: What makes Camp Pursuit unique?

Camp Pursuit is built by educators who genuinely love to learn!  We use our proprietary curriculum model to create one-of-a-kind, STEAM courses that blend storytelling with project-based, interdisciplinary study. 

 

All of our courses include built-in options for choice and accelerated materials, and every class is taught by a passionate Inspirator  who has been trained to work with a wide variety of students in mixed-aged classroom models.

Q: What does the daily schedule look like?  

From drop off to pick up, we want you to feel secure, knowning that your camper is safe and having fun! Here's the most important details, but let us know if you still have questions:

  • There will be fun morning announcements, before going to the day's class. Each course is built for mixed-aged learning, with added challenges and opportunities to dive in deeper (or slow down) depending on your camper's unique learning pathway. Each day there are multiple hands-on activities and projects. Plus, a trained adventure guide is there to support and provide feedback.   

  • We schedule breaks during the day. In the morning, it's a simple restroom/snack break. There's also lunch, afternoon activity hour and a daily mind/body challenge. 

Q: Are there installment options?

Pricing varies by location and duration of the camp; however, many programs allow you to pay in installments. Check your location for more details.

Q: What is the cancellation policy?

$50 from each registration fee is non-refundable as it helps us cover the cost of credit card fees, clerical work, scheduling, and ordering supplies.

 

Cancellation notice must be submitted via email to NuMindsAdmin@numien.com. Refund will be issued in the same manner payment was made. 100% of tuition paid (not including the $50 Registration Fee) will be refunded if written notice is received no later than four weeks prior to session start date.

Cancellations received within four or less weeks of session start date forfeit full tuition. 

 

We reserve the right to cancel a session date if participation numbers are not adequate. If your session is canceled, you may select an alternative session date or request a full refund (including registration). Any cancellations of sessions will occur a minimum of four weeks prior to the session.

Q: How do I get a Camp Pursuit near me?

Are you too far from the fun? We ordered a flying drone bus from Amazon, but until it gets here, what we do is partner with schools to bring Camp Pursuit to you.

 

We make the process simple, we hire locally, and we even offer profit sharing to help schools raise funds to keep for themselves. Simply let us know who to reach out to, and we will do our best to bring Camp Pursuit to a school near you!

June 6-10
One Week Only

Designed by NuMinds and delivered by top educators in Killeen ISD, Mars 2030 is a one-week mission to survive and thrive on the Red Planet. 

How is the day structured?
We'll begin each day with an assembly, laying out the challenges. Working with their teams, campers will select their own learning journey--from courses to hands-on building, all in an attempt to colonize the Red Planet before the week is over. Breaks will be given throughout the day, and lunch will be provided.

Is it only about space?
You're simulating a Martian colony and solving engineering puzzles, but the challenges range from robotics and rocketry to articulating the surreal experience of a potato-shaped moon traversing a bright blue sunset.
