Genius School Micro Camp program:
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 but also throughout their lives.
You dive deeper into how the Genius Campers own who they show up as in the world and as leaders in their schools and communities. You will teach them how to leverage the team around them by focusing on and valuing the genius in each camper.
You create an opportunity for the Genius Campers to work together to give back to their community in a meaningful way.
You will also share with the parents and caregivers what the Genius Campers have learned and how they can continue to support their child/children through understanding their path of least resistance.
