Lego Summer Camp

 

Kidizens Lego Summer Camps for the Bay Area

Would your child like to build and be the Mayor of an entire city of LEGOs?

Would you like to leverage your child’s love of LEGOs to help them learn critical real-life, 21st century skills and strategies?

Join us for one to two weeks of fun and leadership at our very popular Kidizens Summer Camps in Belmont, Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Los Altos, Saratoga, Los Gatos, San Jose and Fremont!

At Kidizens, children’s passion and creativity are nurtured and engaged to become thoughtful and responsible citizens and future leaders, one LEGO brick at a time. During our excitement-packed Bay Area LEGO Summer Camps kids plan and create their own small LEGO civilization.
As active participants, kids:

Highlights:
Serve as a Co-Mayor for a week
Manage residents, policies, economy, budget
Create a robust city infrastructure to handle residents’ basic and growing needs
Deal with problems and the unexpected (natural disasters, crime, resources, budget crises) in an age-appropriate manner
Establish laws and justice systems – fun court cases bring many concepts to life
Develop public policy platform and campaign against an opponent

In our fast-paced, highly creative and dynamic environment, students are positively guided. They will have fun and:

Develop leadership and interpersonal skills
Role play as a responsible mayor as well as wear other hats
Think out of the box, creatively and on their feet
Problem-solve and make decisions in a fast changing environment
Work in teams and collaborate
Cultivate confidence and speak publicly
Highlights:
1-week camps suitable for grades K-6

Grades K-3 and 3-6 are grouped separately and partnered age-appropriately, with older kids building their own cities and presented with more complex challenges and problem solving opportunities.

2-week camps for grades 3-6 only

A highly immersive and in-depth experience which allows kids to solve many complex challenges, dig deeper for city solutions and develop an entire mayoral campaign towards the election for a 2nd term against a real opponent.

A new focus on role-play

Children will have an opportunity to choose a city role, undergo job training, wear the ‘new hat’ (and appropriate associated accessories) and role play during the week to perform key tasks for that job.

A different theme/goal every week

Explorers, Gold Rush, Space Crusaders, Cities of Future, Back to the Medieval Times. Minecraft and many more….

For kids that love Robotics

There are many opportunities to build city-related Robotic elements (motorized cars, signs, doors, toll booths, etc.) to make the cities animated and come alive!
