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 about critical real-life lessons and strategies?
Then, join us for one or two weeks of fun and responsibility at our very popular Kidizens Summer Camps at one of our locations, in Los Altos, Belmont and Saratoga as well as at JLS middle school campus in Palo Alto.
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 flooding, earthquakes and other acts of nature, resident problems and budget crises.
Watch this video to get a glimpse of our younger Mayors (Ages 6-9) in action!
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 and are increasingly becoming popular. Many kids returned for a 2nd and a 3rd year to our camps this past summer. This summer – We will be incorporating many science and engineering concepts as well as Robotic elements to build the “Cities of Future.” For kids who have experienced the thrill of a Kidizens summer camp in the past, we will be introducing many new themes (Explorers, Space Crusaders, Olympics and more), interlaced with new civic and fun challenges this summer.
