Introducing Satoshi Summer Camp: A Bitcoin Adventure for Families

Set against the backdrop of the vibrant Bitcoin 2024 conference in Nashville, Tennessee, Satoshi Summer Camp is poised to be the highlight for families attending the event. This two-day extravaganza promises to blend fun, education, and community-building in a way that’s never been done before.

At the heart of Satoshi Summer Camp is the Family Fun Zone, a hub of activity where children and families can engage in a variety of enriching experiences. From instructor-led crafts to kid-approved snacks, and even an indoor play space, there’s something for every member of the family to enjoy. Parents can relax and connect with other families while their little ones are having a blast in the bounce house or at the activity stations.

For the older kids, aged 6-12, the Bitcoin STEM Camp, in partnership with BSTEM, offers a hands-on educational journey into the world of Bitcoin technology. Parents can drop their big kids off for two-days of learning, led by experienced instructors. Children will delve into topics such as 3D printing, cryptology, setting up nodes, and even designing games in Minecraft. It’s a chance for young Bitcoin enthusiasts to deepen their understanding of the digital currency in a fun and engaging way.

As the world of Bitcoin continues to expand, one set of parents is pioneering a unique approach to introducing Bitcoin to the next generation. Emily and David Bailey, inspired by their own journey in Bitcoin, welcomed their first child around the genesis of their now world-famous Bitcoin conferences, Bitcoin 2019, in San Francisco, CA. Two years later, their conference had grown significantly, and after witnessing the half pipes and expansive art gallery in Miami for Bitcoin 2021, the Baileys envisioned a space where families could come together to explore, learn, and play in the exciting world of Bitcoin. And thus this year, Satoshi Summer Camp was born.

“We wanted to create an experience that would not only educate children about Bitcoin but also foster a sense of community among families,” says Emily Bailey. “Bitcoin is more than just a financial tool; it’s a culture, and we want to ensure that everyone, including children, feels included and excited about its potential.”

Space for Satoshi Summer Camp is limited, and families are encouraged to reserve their spots early to avoid missing out on this one-of-a-kind opportunity. There are two types of passes, one for the fun zone – aimed at the 5 and unders – and one that includes BSTEM for 6-12 year olds.

Founded by longtime Bitcoin advocate Zach Shelton and based in Virginia, BSTEM specializes in offering engaging STEM programming tailored specifically for young Bitcoin enthusiasts. With a team of experienced instructors and a focus on hands-on learning, BSTEM is the perfect partner for Satoshi Summer Camp’s educational endeavors.

In its quest to provide a memorable experience for families, Satoshi Summer Camp and BSTEM are collaborating with a handful of other Bitcoin businesses to build a comprehensive and complete platform for the children. Satoshi Summer Camp is thrilled to announce the Tuttle Twins as a sponsor and collaborator with kid-approved cartoons and books for the campers to enjoy. Arts and crafts will integrate a Lightning-based piggy bank for children, courtesy of Lightning Piggy, and Bitcoin monster character design with Spiral’s Here Comes Bitcoin. Campers will also learn about the new games from SHAmory and FreeMarketKids. Parents can join in on the fun and meet the artists, authors, and creators supporting Bitcoin families.

“Bitcoin is not strictly an ideology. Culture is malleable. We need to remember that these are children, and what it means to be a bitcoiner will certainly change in the coming decade as our children become adults,” further explained Bailey. “Our goal is to make it fun for kids.”

Campers and their families will get to explore the Expo Hall through guided “field trips.” Destinations include the Mining Village, the Art Gallery, and the opportunity to take part in a collaborative mural by Marco Santini.

The Camp begins Friday, July 26th and continues Saturday, July 27th. The Family Fun Zone welcomes families for a day of play and scheduled activities, designed to come and go as they please. The Bitcoin STEM Program starts at 9 AM each day and concludes at 4:30 PM. Lunch and snacks will be provided to all campers, both days. On Industry Day, July 25, there will be a soft opening where the playground is open for free play from 8 AM to 5 PM.

As the Bitcoin 2024 conference approaches, anticipation for Satoshi Summer Camp is building. Families from around the world are gearing up for a weekend of fun, learning, and community-building in Music City, where the spirit of Bitcoin will be alive and thriving. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this groundbreaking event!
