Mixed Age, Course Availability, Registration Fee, and Cancellation Policy

ABOUT MIXED-AGED CLASSES

All courses are offered in what is known as a mixed-aged classroom, meaning each course is fully open to any 1st-  grader (some courses for this camp are designed to be kinder friendly).  We recognize that kids do not all mature or progress academically at the same rate (known as asynchronous development).  For example, a 2nd grader may be completing 5th grade level mathematics, or an 8th grader may love to fingerpaint.  As adults, we experience this everyday; somedays I wear a tie and go to meetings, and other days I’m on the playground, playing with my kiddos (although my muscles often remind me of my physical age the next day 

 

At NuMinds Enrichment, we recognize that you know your kid and his/her maturity and academic level far better than we do, and so we trust that you’ll help make the best choices.  If you’re concerned about bullying, please don’t be.  Numerous research studies and our prior experiences with camps, events, and evening courses consistently show that older kids love the attention showered on them by the younger students, and the younger students love working with others who share their same passions.  The age gap seems to melt away as the sole focus becomes the learning experience.

If you have any questions about the course catalog, please don’t hesitate to contact us at hello@numien.com.  We know our teachers and the course content, and we will be happy to help guide you in the decision-making process.

 

COURSE AVAILABILITY

Camp Pursuit allows the student to build their own camp experience by choosing the number of weeks to attend and their preferred courses/topics.  Students choose their topic preferences and have the opportunity to explore them throughout the week.  It’s kind of like signing up for college classes, except you don’t get to sleep in.

Because class sizes are limited certain courses/topics listed in the catalog may not be available during registration.  Worst-case scenario, a course may not make due to low enrollment.  If this is the case, you will be contacted directly and given the option to choose an alternate course or cancel the camp.
