About Bricks 4 Kidz®…
Bricks 4 Kidz classes provide an extraordinary atmosphere for children, where we learn, we build, we play… with LEGO® bricks. Programs are built around our proprietary model plans, designed by engineers and architects, with exciting themes such as space, construction, and amusement parks. Our specially designed project kits and theme-based models provide the building blocks for the Bricks 4 Kidz approach to educational play. At Bricks 4 Kidz, we believe that kids learn best through activities that engage their curiosity and creativity.
We offer activities for children ages 3-13+, including:

Summer Camps: 2016 CAMPS ONLINE NOW- REGISTER TODAY!
A Bricks 4 Kidz® camp is a fresh and fun way for kids to spend their school break! With specially-designed Bricks 4 Kidz® models, LEGO® games, challenges and the ever popular collective projects to serve as creative inspiration during free-play, the kids are always LEARNING, BUILDING and PLAYING. Camps are specially designed for kids ages 5-12 and are staffed by trained, screened Bricks 4 Kidz® teachers.
Our camp programs provide a safe, relaxed learning environment where initiative is invited and self-expression is celebrated. Model building provides opportunities for problem-solving and helps kids develop an appreciation for how things work. All this takes place while kids are having fun and socializing in a non-competitive atmosphere.
