BRICKS 4 KIDZ® camps are a high-energy, fast-paced setting where kids discover, explore, invent and create. The camps provide a child the opportunity to take a simple model, add their own imagination, and test the limits of their creativity. Whether building specific Bricks 4 Kidz® motorized models and then modifying them or building during free play, campers will have a great time. In addition to lots of building with LEGOS® our themed camps include games, challenges, and role-playing.

Brick City Engineers
Ages 6 to 12 years old • June 29 – July 3 (Session 2)
What would a city be without the architects and engineers who come up with the ideas, designs, plans and building skills to put it all together. This camp celebrates those disciplines. The sky is the limit the campers are challenged to use their own ideas and skills to build the tallest skyscraper. They will also build vehicles, airplanes, parks and more as they create a vibrant LEGO® city. And when they aren’t building, they will be doing related crafts and playing games to keep the action constant. All participants will receive a Bricks 4 Kidz take home.
B4K Kids Engineering Discovery Workshop
Ages 7 – 12 years old • July 6 – July 10 (Session 3)
A non-LEGO® program from Bricks 4 Kidz. This is a hands-on program for those campers who ask how or why something works. It’s about learning different engineering disciplines and then having a great time designing and building a working model. They will work in teams to create a design, build it, test it and try it out with the entire team. They will create their own electro-magnet or flashlight, build a balloon powered race car, design a giant roller coaster, build a cup tower without touching the cups, build a catapult and see who can launch a golf ball the furthest and numerous other DIY projects. The campers will get to keep many of their projects.
Remote Control Mania
Ages 6 – 12 years old • July 13 – July 17 (Session 4)
Making it move is the name of the game at this exciting camp! Kids will love to see their creations in motion using LEGO® wireless remote controls. Each day, campers will use fascinating and challenging LEGO® components to create dynamic vehicles, inventions, machines and more. As they enjoy the fun of building, campers will understand the basic working principles of many ingenious devices that are part of our everyday lives. Campers will also learn how to magnify, diminish and redirect force to move objects at different speeds and in different directions. This camp is loads of fun and learning for budding builders.
Video Game Design with Scratch Camp
Ages 8 -14 years old • July 20-July 24 (Session 5)
Students will develop a range of coding and problem-solving skills as they create fun video games. Game designers will think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively to create various video games. Each game progressively teaches more advanced capabilities within the video game design software. Students will be proud and excited to actually play their very own completed video games.
