Daily Logic Lessons

Each day will bring a new set of problems to solve. Your camper will join new friends and an expert instructor as they take on puzzles, riddles, and illusions that’ll blow their minds.

Day 1: Optical Illusions & Magical Mind Tricks
You won’t believe your eyes as you explore optical illusions and sleight-of-hand magic tricks, and learn the techniques behind how they fool our eyes.

Day 2: Riddles & Logic Games
Learn to answer—and create—seemingly unanswerable questions using logical deduction and an appreciation for misdirection.

Day 3: Math Mindbenders & Gaming Genius
Flex your numerical knowledge with collaborative puzzles from Math Olympiad and by developing strategies for number-driven games like Yahtzee, Connect Four, and more.

Day 4: Cracking Codes & Tackling Trivia
What do codes and trivia questions have in common? They tend to include clues for those who know how to find them, a skill you’ll master as you tackle these challenges.

Day 5: Brainteaser Bonanza
Stump your campmates and test your newfound logic skills as you create and compete in challenges of all types.
