Introducing Mind U

Mindcamp Mindcamp 2016, Mindcampology

Over the years Mindcamp has introduced lots of changes — a new scene: Geneva Park, a new team: our amazing Bananas, several new memes: Kids programs, Win U, the Camino, Kaleidoscopes, and over a dozen new themes: from Chance to Change, from Possibility to Elements of Creativity.

This year, we’re rolling out a new scheme: more open time for discovering, sunning, swimming, boating, hiking, or just plain chilling — in keeping with our 2016 theme: ( *)

Now we want to introduce you to our new stream. This year we’re premiering Mind U — a set of concurrent, deep-dive programs that run through Mindcamp. Every day, in first period, you can jump into a single immersive program designed to dive deep. In total, you’ll experience nearly six immersive hours that play out during first period on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings. You told us you wanted immersion programs, and that’s what Mind U aims to deliver.

After first period, there will be a regular slot for independent 90-minute programs till lunch, and another slot for 90-minute programs after lunch — followed by two hours of glorious open space. Check out the overview schedule below.

We’re excited about our changes, particularly Mind U and the extra free time. We hope you will be too.

  1. Ok guys – I LOVE Mindcamp and want to come again this year. But…I can’t find a date anywhere on this site. Might want to add it somewhere. And if I’m being blind after 30 minutes of looking…just point me in right direction!
