Play. Learn. Work. Connect.

Mindcamp is a conference where you can take seminars and classes which teach creativity, innovation and leadership skills.

It’s a five-day micro-university for personal, professional, and organizational creativity — a feast of concurrent sessions presented by the best creativity leaders in North America and world-wide.

Mindcamp exposes more than 200 creative people to a wide range of perspectives on the research and practice of deliberate creativity and structured thinking. And on top of our scheduled programs, there are evening salons, dialog sessions, music, dancing, campfires, and just plain fun.

Mindcamp is run by volunteers and priced to break even.

YMCA Geneva Park, Orillia, ON, Canada

“I can’t thank you enough for organizing such a totally awesome collection of seminars, creative people and utter FUN…. Mindcamp was one of the best and most rewarding experiences I have ever participated in my entire professional career…. I really felt like an integral part of the community while I was there and take away an entire community of like minded people as close friends when I left — PRICELESS!”Lee Kitchen, Walt Disney World, Florida
