Camp Marco Polo is a cultural immersion program in Palo Alto for kids interested in art, culture, and history - ideal for gifted and social emotional learning.

Our program explores beyond STEM into the history of technology and trade along the Silk Road through creative hands-on projects and role-playing activities, where children can discover complex interconnections between East and West, art and science, past and present.

In addition, Camp Marco Polo offers a series of creative learning kits for the home called Caravan in a Box, which received the prestigious Gold Seal of the Mom's Choice Awards for Best Educational Product of 2019.

We offer ELL support and have had international students from Europe and Asia each year, including students visiting from: Austria, France, Italy, Spain, China, Korea, and Taiwan! We have partners who can potentially assist with homestay residents and transportation for international students. Contact for more information.

We can accommodate only if a family has a trained caretaker that can accompany the child. Our program is quite small and we have returning families that are very much a part of our community who are happy to welcome children with special needs to our mix.
