Program Description

For campers in rising grades K-5, Thinkertown! is an exploration- and experience-centered program designed to lay a strong foundation across core competencies through fun and engaging cooperative activities! Campers will govern and manage their own little “town” rotating roles and developing skills that a traditional curriculum might not include, such as communication, conflict resolution, and self-regulation, among others.  Using innovative applications of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and Experiential Education, we aim to educate the whole child, and provide ‘at-bat’ opportunities to develop critical skills and muscles in a safe and structured environment… while having fun with friends!

Camp Credentials

Thinkertown! was created by Pingry faculty and staff, focused on the goal of helping young students develop the intangible tools they’ll need for success not only when they return to school in the fall, but as they navigate new social experiences.
