Camp Inquiry 2014: CI is DIY
You don't have to be an expert.
You don't even have to be a grown-up.

Ever wonder how to tell bad science from good? Or what it takes to become a paranormal investigator? Ever think about starting your own freethought group or organizing a philosophical debate?

These may seem like jobs for the pros, but with the right resources and experiences, you don’t have to be an expert to Do-It-Yourself. You don’t even have to be a grown-up.

With curiosity and imagination in spades, young skeptics already have the essential foundation for discovery and DIY-inquiry. Combine this with hands-on learning experiences and guidance from some of today’s brightest minds, and they’ll have the tools they’ll need to apply rationality, creativity, and critical thinking to the wider world.

This year, CI is DIY. We’re putting Camp Inquiry in the hands of the campers and taking discovery to a whole new level with how-to workshops, youth-sparked activities, and inquiry-inspired explorations. Whether one is a regular attendee or a first-timer, 2014 offers every child a unique way to experience Camp Inquiry: CI DIY!
