The camp includes modules focused on various topics, which can be run, at choice, for one, two, three or four weeks.
The Summer School programs will be organized in almost all Mindhub centers in the country, more precisely in: Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Timisoara, Brasov, Constanța, Craiova and Șimleul Silvaniei.
“Children are increasingly attracted to technology, computers, tablets and robots. In the last year, many parents have understood that the time spent with their children, at home, must be exploited and, not only, they have realized that they can hone their passions in skills that will prepare them for the future. The Summer School is a camp that offers children the opportunity to spend part of their vacation playing, exploring the world around them and learning new things, with the help of technology. Free time becomes even more beneficial as long as it is meaningfully exploited. We encourage parents to pay attention to their concerns and to invest, whenever they can, in their talents,” says Polly Yankova, founder of the MindHub network.
The Summer School includes programs (daily or part-time, optional) designed to run weekly, Monday through Friday, between 8:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. (depending on the module), which are based on programming courses organized with the help of games and robots, but also art and creativity laboratories, exploring nature, planets and the human body – all adapted to the ages of students. At the same time, the children have the opportunity, at the end of the day, after completing the workshops, to exercise outdoors, together with the other camp colleagues, namely sports such as football, basketball, tennis, horseback riding, etc.
For example, the MindHub center in Brașov also offers participants the opportunity to opt for camps with accommodation included, throughout the program.
The prices of MindHub camps vary depending on the period, theme or location in the country where it takes place. They start from 300 lei (rate for one week / participant) and can reach 1,000 lei (rate for 4 weeks / participant) for programs that run for half a day (half-day), while full programs, full-day prices range from 600 lei (one week / participant) to 2,700 lei (4 weeks / participant). The groups formed within the Summer School include 6-8 children / workshop, depending on the theme and the age of the participants.
Parents can enroll their children at any time, during the summer, the camp starting in early July a.c. and ending in the first part of September.
“The feedback from the students of the previous editions was extremely good: the children were very excited about the summer activities put in place, while their parents really appreciated the way we managed to make the most of their free time, offering them both useful information, packaged in an attractive and original way, and the opportunity to exercise, socialize and play with other children with common interests. These feedbacks give us the opportunity to turn this year’s edition into the most attractive of all “, points out Polly Yankova. Referring to the interest shown by participants in previous editions, MindHub representatives estimate over 350 registrations for this year’s Summer School, most of which will opt for full-day programs, designed for two or three weeks.
