Kidizens Lego Summer Camps for the Bay Area
Would you like to build and be the Mayor of an entire city of LEGOs?
Would you like to leverage your love of LEGOs to learn critical real-life lessons and strategies?
Join us for one to two weeks of fun and responsibility at our very popular Kidizens Summer Camps at any one of our locations, in Los Altos, Belmont and Saratoga!
Stay tuned as we announce many new locations throughout the Bay area (in Los Gatos, Burlingame, Fremont) this summer!
Kidizens inspires students to become good citizens and future leaders, one LEGO brick at a time. The Kidizens Summer Program includes intensive action and excitement-packed sessions, where children create their own small civilization built with LEGOs and serve as Co-Mayors for a week. The Co-Mayors manage the economy, the residents and their needs, city departments and services and deal with unexpected problems and situations in an age-appropriate manner. In a fast-paced dynamic environment, the kids develop leadership and interpersonal skills while dealing with natural disasters, resident problems and financial crises.
This is a rare opportunity for kids to role play as responsible leaders in addition to wearing many other hats – think out of the box and on their feet, problem solve and come to decisions in a fast, action-packed, exciting environment. They also learn how to develop a public policy platform and campaign as well as address residents through speeches against a real opponent.
Watch this video to get a glimpse of our younger Mayors (Ages 6-9) in action!
Los Legos, a wonderful city built by our Co-Mayos (Ages 9-11).
Here’s an election campaign ad from our 2-week Co-Mayors responding to a prominent industrialist opponent candidate!
Also, watch this testimonial video from one of our past our summer camp sessions where our students and LEGO city mayors met the real mayor of Palo Alto, Sid Espinosa, and hear his impressions of Kidizens.
Our summer camps have received tremendous parent endorsements with glowing reviews and have become increasingly popular. Many kids returned for a 2nd and a 3rd year to our camps this past summer. For kids who have experienced the thrill of a serving as mayors past summers, we have added many new themes and elements to make the camps even more exciting and super fun.
