Thinkery Summer Camp Fundraiser at Pease Park

On Friday, February 10, 2023, we were delighted to join Thinkery and Pease Park Conservancy for "A Pease-ful Summer for Thinkery Friends" party at the Pease Park Tudor Cottage and Terrace. This family-friendly event was graciously hosted by Jessica and Gabe Bruehl to raise scholarship funds for Friends Austin youth to attend Thinkery Camp at Pease Park this summer.

This party included hands-on STEAM-learning activities, Franklin BBQ, cocktails, and a silent auction. Funds raised at this event support Thinkery's Open Door Initiative to host our youth at camp.

About Thinkery Camp
At Thinkery Camp, kids are the leaders in their own summer adventure. Campers will spend their time exploring STEAM concepts through collaborative games and activities, growing their creative problem-solving skills by tinkering, and developing their tool fluency through exploration. But how they use those skills will be up to them! At the core of their experience will be Thinkery’s hands-on, play-based approach to helping learners explore STEAM concepts and grow their social-emotional skills. Visit Thinkery's Camps webpage.
