Testimonials

"Outstanding camp! My daughter took few sessions. I could see a huge progress with the way she expressed her thoughts and put them in writing. Teacher was amazing. We need more of those great camps, please continue them in summer!", Yelp review


“The products kids can make and sell are limited but they are designed so the kids can make them. My daughter could not stop talking about her team’s business ideas and plan for days.” – SurveyMonkey review


“I was told by the teacher that my son was the team’s leader. He has a few friends who got into GATE and he didn’t. We wanted him to but I can see that it takes a lot of skills to succeed. His team with all kinds of GATE and non GATE students won the most revenue award. This was an excellent Camp. Keep us posted for next year.” – Saratoga Academy camp


"I took my daughter to this camp and she loved it. She learned material that she would not have otherwise learned in school. I wish it was longer", Yelp review


“I was worried a Money camp won’t be fun but my kids really enjoyed this camp and got to get a sneak peak of next year’s math subjects. Keep up the good work. I think the camp will be pretty popular next summer” – USD parent


"The program is very creative, the teacher was very competent and the assistant teachers were younger and in charge of fun stuff. We should've done all 3 weeks but the first and last week wouldn't work for our schedule. The Second camp, Invention Camp was lots of great hands on projects and while they were many science projects but they also had creative projects (for non scientists) and they emphasized creativity, planning and even budgeting for kids to think about. I thought that maybe the subject would be too hard to grasp for kids but as it turned out my daughter seemed to rise up to the challenge and enjoyed it very much. They don't have extended day which required a little more planning on our part but the teacher said they will offer it next year. Great for 3rd graders and up.", Yelp review


"My son loved it. I am looking for a camp again this summer and I think we'll just repeat all three weeks. He is older and can benefit from the more challenging projects I think. I just don't see why this type of activities can't be part of the regular school material. It is so useful! My son kept talking about his ideas and finding his niche. Keep up the good work!", Yelp


“This camp was a great intro to business in one fun week. I wish I had a camp like this when I was younger. Put us on your list for other innovative camps.” – J.T, Saratoga Elementary parent


“I really liked the idea of this camp and I hope that better social skills will help my son who is a GATE student but needs more help in soft skills.” – Almaden Academy parent


This was an excellent camp! I strongly recommend it. They did a lot of project based learning and taught the kids to work in teams. The projects were very interesting and the materials handed out were very inspirational.. We will definitely use them again."", Yelp review


“I wanted to thank you for a great camp. My son was not getting along well with his team and he didn’t like his “job”, but the teacher was able to show him how his skills of making mazes can help his team . She helped him think creatively. He is talking about making a maze blog. I loved it.” – SW


“This testprep was really helpful. I made such a big deal out of it and wouldn't get started. Now that we have done both SAT and ACT and know what I have to do, all I need is more practice” – SurveyMonkey review


“My boys attended a couple weeks of camp in Los Gatos that just ended and one in San Jose. They really enjoyed themselves and made good friends withing their "company". The director told us that the camp philosophy is learning through building a startup. I know from my own experience that 1 year in a startup environment was as much learning as 10 years in a large company. So, why not teach kids social and academic subjects in a real life (kid version) company/business building environment" Yelp review


“ I was simply blown away when my daughter was watching TV at home and started analyzing the commercial. Keep up the good work” - SurveyMonkey review


“I am so happy to have found this camp. I don’t know why schools don’t offer something like this to all kids. These are life lessons and I learned them from an executive coach that my company paid for. This is what the kids need just as much as academic, STEM? Stuff” – Media Savvy camp parent


"These guys should be supported and encouraged to continue expanding and improving. I give them 5 stars!” – Yelp review


“My husband is always talking about his ideas and I think my son really liked the thought of invention camps. He came home so excited every day. This was a very good experience for him. Thanks!” – Williams Elementary parent


“I will definitely continue with my website and project plan. I think I have something to say on my college app now. oh and interviewing our AP was hard but I did it” – TeenStartup student, SurveyMonkey review

"Second class we took for SAT prep. My daughter finds them boring. But she thought yours was good and her score did improve. Maybe she just got serious but I was happy with this class. Can't complain about the price either", SurveyMonkey review

“This is a great summer camp. What I loved about it is that it introduced my daughter and my nephew to innovation but it was just as fun for girls as it was for boys. They had a mix of ages and abilities and they stressed teamwork and social skills to make a team successful. They also gave plenty of ideas and encouragement to girls so they could "invent" a new comic strip, a new fashion line, etc. while at the same time boys (or girls) could invent an electric circuit design. The camp instructor worked with the kids to move through stages of coming up with the idea, testing it out, building, marketing and selling. And before they built, they had to pitch the idea to the teacher and her assistants to get "funded"and get material. It was really cute. But I liked that my daughter and her cousin kept talking about it during and after the camp. So, I think it well deserved the 5 star. The curriculum was great but probably the teachers made it excellent.” – Yelp review

"I loved the business camp. It was exactly what we had hoped for. My daughter was specially happy about how the "consultants" encouraged her love of puzzles and put her on the marketing team to make puzzles as marketing handouts. The instructors were super!" - Survey Monkey review

"SAT prep camp was excellent. Instructor very knowledgeable and cool, according to my son. Price and length of class was just right" - AH

They don't have extended day which required a little more planning on our part but the teacher said they will offer it next year. Great for 3rd graders and up.", Yelp review


"My son loved it. I am looking for a camp again this summer and I think we'll just repeat all three weeks. He is older and can benefit from the more challenging projects I think. I just don't see why this type of activities can't be part of the regular school material. It is so useful! My son kept talking about his ideas and finding his niche. Keep up the good work!", Yelp


“This camp was a great intro to business in one fun week. I wish I had a camp like this when I was younger. Put us on your list for other innovative camps.” – J.T, Saratoga Elementary parent


“I really liked the idea of this camp and I hope that better social skills will help my son who is a GATE student but needs more help in soft skills.” – Almaden Academy parent


This was an excellent camp! I strongly recommend it. They did a lot of project based learning and taught the kids to work in teams. The projects were very interesting and the materials handed out were very inspirational.. We will definitely use them again."", Yelp review


“I wanted to thank you for a great camp. My son was not getting along well with his team and he didn’t like his “job”, but the teacher was able to show him how his skills of making mazes can help his team . She helped him think creatively. He is talking about making a maze blog. I loved it.” – SW


“This testprep was really helpful. I made such a big deal out of it and wouldn't get started. Now that we have done both SAT and ACT and know what I have to do, all I need is more practice” – SurveyMonkey review


“My boys attended a couple weeks of camp in Los Gatos that just ended and one in San Jose. They really enjoyed themselves and made good friends withing their "company". The director told us that the camp philosophy is learning through building a startup. I know from my own experience that 1 year in a startup environment was as much learning as 10 years in a large company. So, why not teach kids social and academic subjects in a real life (kid version) company/business building environment" Yelp review


“ I was simply blown away when my daughter was watching TV at home and started analyzing the commercial. Keep up the good work” - SurveyMonkey review


“I am so happy to have found this camp. I don’t know why schools don’t offer something like this to all kids. These are life lessons and I learned them from an executive coach that my company paid for. This is what the kids need just as much as academic, STEM? Stuff” – Media Savvy camp parent


"These guys should be supported and encouraged to continue expanding and improving. I give them 5 stars!” – Yelp review


“My husband is always talking about his ideas and I think my son really liked the thought of invention camps. He came home so excited every day. This was a very good experience for him. Thanks!” – Williams Elementary parent


“I will definitely continue with my website and project plan. I think I have something to say on my college app now. oh and interviewing our AP was hard but I did it” – TeenStartup student, SurveyMonkey review

"Second class we took for SAT prep. My daughter finds them boring. But she thought yours was good and her score did improve. Maybe she just got serious but I was happy with this class. Can't complain about the price either", SurveyMonkey review

“This is a great summer camp. What I loved about it is that it introduced my daughter and my nephew to innovation but it was just as fun for girls as it was for boys. They had a mix of ages and abilities and they stressed teamwork and social skills to make a team successful. They also gave plenty of ideas and encouragement to girls so they could "invent" a new comic strip, a new fashion line, etc. while at the same time boys (or girls) could invent an electric circuit design. The camp instructor worked with the kids to move through stages of coming up with the idea, testing it out, building, marketing and selling. And before they built, they had to pitch the idea to the teacher and her assistants to get "funded"and get material. It was really cute. But I liked that my daughter and her cousin kept talking about it during and after the camp. So, I think it well deserved the 5 star. The curriculum was great but probably the teachers made it excellent.” – Yelp review

"I loved the business camp. It was exactly what we had hoped for. My daughter was specially happy about how the "consultants" encouraged her love of puzzles and put her on the marketing team to make puzzles as marketing handouts. The instructors were super!" - Survey Monkey review

"SAT prep camp was excellent. Instructor very knowledgeable and cool, according to my son. Price and length of class was just right" - AH


"Outstanding camp! My daughter took few sessions. I could see a huge progress with the way she expressed her thoughts and put them in writing. Teacher was amazing. We need more of those great camps, please continue them in summer!", Yelp review


“The products kids can make and sell are limited but they are designed so the kids can make them. My daughter could not stop talking about her team’s business ideas and plan for days.” – SurveyMonkey review


“I was told by the teacher that my son was the team’s leader. He has a few friends who got into GATE and he didn’t. We wanted him to but I can see that it takes a lot of skills to succeed. His team with all kinds of GATE and non GATE students won the most revenue award. This was an excellent Camp. Keep us posted for next year.” – Saratoga Academy camp


"I took my daughter to this camp and she loved it. She learned material that she would not have otherwise learned in school. I wish it was longer", Yelp review


“I was worried a Money camp won’t be fun but my kids really enjoyed this camp and got to get a sneak peak of next year’s math subjects. Keep up the good work. I think the camp will be pretty popular next summer” – USD parent


"The program is very creative, the teacher was very competent and the assistant teachers were younger and in charge of fun stuff.
