The Best Teachers.
The Most Fun.
Why Camp Brainiac?
Camp Brainiac is a summer day camp that welcomes elementary school age kids 6-12! We focus on this age because a love for learning develops in early grade school.
A local Des Moines mom and local teacher partnered in 2018 to create Camp Brainiac with a mission to avoid the dreaded "summer backslide." The summer backslide is real! Research shows that kids lose academic ground over the summer.
Camp Brainiac gives kids a break from the classroom but not necessarily from learning. Brainiac campers will spend their days immersed in experiential learning designed around a different theme each week.
We've released our teachers from the confines of the classroom and given them creative freedom to align camp fun with Iowa's Core Curriculum requirements.
Campers have plenty of outdoor and free time to burn off energy. This isn't like REAL summer school!
We know that learning is easier when you have an excellent teacher. That's why we've recruited the best teachers from across the Des Moines Metro. They are passionate about kids and bring their enthusiasm to Camp Brainiac.
Open to elementary students ages 6-12.
(We're ideal for kids who have completed Kindergarten thru 5th grade)
