Collaborate with other campers as you plan and build amazing projects using visual programming. Create interactive greetings, experiment with sounds and musical notes, make your own comics, design characters and animate them, generate math art, and build level-based games.

In each workshop, kids will typically go through a concept review, solve a puzzle, run through a tutorial, build their own project, and take a quiz.

They create interactive stories, animations, and mini-games during each lesson and apply the programming concepts that they have learned.

CUTTING EDGE

Using the latest cutting edge LEGO® Robotics and Technic pieces such as gears, axles, and electric motors, the kids are always having fun combining both scientific and artistic exploration that harness problem-solving and critical thinking skills.

MENTORSHIP

Kids already know how to build with LEGO® bricks, but with a little coaching and our specially designed step-by-step model plans, our instructors can assist in continually nurture their increasing self-confidence through a sense of ownership of their own creations.

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

Children of all aptitudes will enjoy a new adventure every workshop built around exciting themes like Amusement Parks, Space, Robotics and many more.
