WHAT STUDENTS SAY ABOUT THE CAMPS
“Meeting with so many Silicon Valley veterans as our mentors was an awesome experience. They all inspired us with tons of ideas that we could not absorb and write down fast enough. I learned so much from all the mentors”
Ron T., 8th Grade Middle School
“Getting a personal feedback of my STEAM startup idea from the creator and founder of Guitar Hero!! Are you kidding me? I have not attended any camp before with so many industry leaders as teachers.”
Kevin Z., 8th Grade Middle School
“I have not attended a summer camp like Game Changers before. The topics we learned were serious and related to our career in the real world but the entire camp was actually really fun. I learned so much in fun and engaging ways.”
Megan H., High School Junior
WHAT PARENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT CAMP EXPERIENCES
"My daughter came back a changed individual. She is reaching not only for the stars, she wants to move forward with her idea and figure out ways to find investors who will support their entrepreneurial spirit."
Michelle S., Parent from a Global Gaming Company
"There's no question that we will send our kids to the camp again next year. Kids are learning what they don't learn in other camps."
Jack H., Parent from a Global Pharmaceutical Company
"It was like he was accepted into Y-Combinator and could learn the process of researching, testing, prototyping and pitching his team's idea."
Daniel C., Venture Capitalist
“Our son (age 14) had the privilege of attending the STEAM Entrepreneurship Camp the past 2 weeks. It was the most positive experience for him and he learned a great deal about entrepreneurship. We attended the final day presentations yesterday and we were blown away by how much the kids accomplished. Steve and Gigi are amazing teachers and mentors. We can tell how passionate they are with teaching and how invested they are in helping the kids to learn and achieve. We have 3 sons who have attended a multitude of summer programs over the years, and Young Outliers is the by far the best camp and money well spent! All school students would benefit from learning the skills offered by Young Outliers.”
B. C., parent of 14-year-old Menlo School student
“There should be a category of summer camps called Passion Play. The Young Outliers “camp” was such an influential opportunity for my 12-year-old entrepreneur to develop his software product idea with a teammate from concept through to implementation. Young Outliers is so much more than a camp because Steve brings in several senior Silicon Valley mentors to provide one-on-one feedback for each group idea. Steve himself is so passionate about lighting a flame in our youth to think outside the box, trust their ideas and act on them.”
“Thank you so much for coming up with such a great camp design and for taking such a good care of my daughter. She enjoyed the camp and couldn’t stop talking about the experience and also her start-up idea. She was overwhelmed by how well their idea was received by all the mentors and judges. I know her partner’s father has helped filing the patent for their idea.”
