    I am looking for youth programs for my son - do you offer any summer camps or even long weekend programs where my son (middle-school aged) could learn more about imagineering?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Julia! I can tell your son has a Disney streak in him! Getting to the parks as an adolescent was always a huge goal. Had they had these opportunities when I was a kid, I know I’d be even more steeped in Disney culture.

    While there are no summer camps or weekend programs for solo kids, I can point you towards some opportunities that you can look into. The Disney Youth Programs are geared to groups or 10 or more students focusing on Performing Arts, Education (Marine, Student Life, Leadership, Physics, Chemistry, etc) and the Kingdom Keepers. Perhaps you have a scout troop, science club or arts club that would want to go! I went with my high school Physics class and it’s still a trip I remember. Try riding Big Thunder Mountain Railroad with a cup of water... think you can keep it full with physics guiding you? You can also book a meal to Dine With An Imagineer, which would be a fabulous one on one opportunity for your son to learn and ask questions of a private mentor! Lastly, he can apply for the Disney Dreamers Academy one day; the inspirational stories from kids have been extremely moving; those kids have serious ambition!

    If I can help you look for more programs or perhaps guide you in starting one, please let me know. You’ve got a friend in me! ~ Lindsey P.
