What's a Smart Kid Look Like?

Every parent thinks their child is special. At Camp Infinity we know every child is a gift from God and has been given a unique combination of gifts. But what makes a smart kid?

This is what I share with parents when I have the privilege to tell them about our unique STEM & apologetics camps. At Camp Infinity we believe smart kids have 2 distinct characteristics that makes them smart. They are:

  1. an appetite to learn
  2. keep trying attitude

Give us a child who loves to learn and doesn't easily give up and we will have a blast with them. They will love our teachers and counselors and hands on STEM activities. They will come home and say things like the following (comments from past campers and parents):

My daughter is intelligent, curious, loves science, enjoys math, an avid Lego builder, and has just recently begun to start learning to code. She is a Christian and wants to understand more about the world around her and how God designed it all to work the way it does.

We drove 10 hours to get there, and it was completely worth it. My 13 year old, of course, had a wonderful time. But, he was also inspired to possibly study engineering. He's been much more fired up to do well in Math, making sure he understands his lessons, completely. He hopes to return next year and his younger siblings are all waiting for their time to go, as well.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to go to Ci this year.  Even though it's the fourth year I've attended.  I still learned something new.  And not only did I grow in my knowledge of STEM, I also grew in my relationship with the Lord.  The counselors and staff members fostered an environment that encouraged me and equipped me with the tools I need to engage the people I meet.  I feel confident in sharing truth with those around me.  I look forward to seeing what God has in store for the future of Camp Infinity and pray I can continue to be a part of it.

Wow! Praise God for this amazing camp. My three children got to experience their small robotics sessions at the Teach Them Diligently conference in Atlanta, and then my one son who is loves STEM activities went to their camp for the first time. I can't even begin to describe the growth intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, and socially that he had this past week. This is truly an anointed venture and it shows through and through. His first words to me by phone was, "Mom, Can I please go back next year?!?" Ummm...YES! Thank you so much for putting this camp together to help us reinforce scriptural truths and nurture their interests in these areas. Bless you for doing it.

My son said "After hearing speaker Brian talk, things made sense, I have no doubt in my faith now, no doubt about my Creator! My faith is stronger now than ever!"
