We ran the original Eurekamp! at the University of Alberta from 2009 until 2016. We saw Eurekamp! as valuable in itself, but also instrumentally valuable in allowing us to promote philosophy in the schools year-long through the enthusiasm that we expected the camps to generate in kids, their parents, teachers, and amongst our undergraduates. All turned out to be true, and within a few years we moved from one camp for 20+ kids to 6 weeks of camps for 250–300 kids on a regular basis and expanded the reach of P4C (Philosophy for Children) into Alberta schools.
The video below shows a little bit of that experience and what to expect from Eurekamp Oz! in 2023!
