Attend a fun-packed, virtual event where you will discover your true genius and natural pathway to success. You will leave this micro-camp knowing what makes you truly unique and how you can make a difference in the world.
Genius Camps offer child-centred, personalised learning pathways that ignite the natural genius in young people, creating self-aware, lifelong learners.
Without personalised learning pathways, learning can often be disengaging, irrelevant or redundant. It is easy for children to become disillusioned, question their own abilities or lose motivation.
Our Genius Campers identify their genius, recognise their unique strengths, connect with their passions and start to explore a purpose for their life. They are encouraged to think beyond what is taught in school and explore opportunities beyond traditional jobs. They look at what is possible as a leader, as an entrepreneur, and explore examples of social enterprise.
Each Genius Camper is supported to build on their strengths and passions, develop life skills, and grow their confidence.
Many of the jobs around today will not be around in 5-10 years’ time. We’ll share some amazing stories of young entrepreneurs who have been super successful, and how they’ve achieved their success. We’ll share how you can apply their journeys to your own and establish your own goals for success.
The first-ever face-to-face Genius Camps have already happened in Bali, New Zealand, Thailand, United Kingdom & USA and we launched here in Australia, with our inaugural Genius Camp at Redcliffe, QLD in June 2019. Now we are going virtual!
We have created these events in partnership with Entrepreneurs Institute’s Genius School in response to the growing global demand to revolutionise education. Entrepreneurs Institute has a network of over 2,000,000 entrepreneurs worldwide and is passionate about reimagining education and helping to develop our young people with increased leadership, entrepreneurial and emotional intelligence skills that will lead to their success in our global society.
The program is open to all young people between the ages of 12 and 15 who want to celebrate their unique genius, spend time with other teens to find out what is important to them. The program focuses on recognising individual strengths and setting everyone up to succeed.
Whether you feel limited by school, want to explore starting a business of your own, or simply want to know more about your learning style and grow in confidence, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
Show Up ~
This is the opportunity for the Genius Campers to learn about their path of least resistance to success in life, how they learn best and how to use those strengths to help them achieve their goals not only in school today, but also throughout their lives.
Step Up ~
We dive deeper into how our Genius Campers own who they show up as in the world and as leaders in their school and communities. We will teach them how to leverage the team around them through focusing on and valuing the genius in each other camper.
Give Back ~
We create an opportunity for the Genius Campers to work together to give back to their community in a meaningful way. We also share with the parents and caregivers what the Genius Campers have learned and how they can continue to support them through understanding their path of least resistance as a student and future leader.
