Think Fun Camps

Think Fun Camps are hands-on, activity based camps for curious and creative kids.  In each camp, children play games, explore, and engage in fun projects that encourage them to inquire, think, and problem solve together. Parents know the camps are educational - but the campers are having too much fun to notice!

Think Fun Camps use the internationally accepted, UNESCO endorsed Philosophy for Children (P4C) method of teaching thinking skills to children. The camps are organized by Dr. Susan Gardner, Director of the Vancouver Institute of Philosophy for Children (VIP4C), and Anastasia Anderson, head of the UFV Philosophy Department with UFV Center for Safe Schools and Communities acting in an advisory capacity.
