About us

The Think Fun team combines scholarly expertise, a commitment to thinking and community-building with our love of working with children

Think Fun

Emerging out of the creative and committed cross-fertilisation of philosophy practioners, Think Fun aims to create an environment in which children have fun and think simultaneously.

Thinking is something that needs to be learned! It doesn’t just happen!

Our annual summer camps have been welcoming many campers and practitioners from all over the world who want to experience our philosophically-based curricula. The design and implementation is supervised by our founder and CEO Dr. Susan Gardner, graduate of Oxford University, Philosophy Professor at Capilano University and Director of The Vancouver Institute of Philosophy for Children (VIP4C).

The road to successful THINK FUN camps?
