Currently our Creativity Center is closed, we will be hosting camps throughout the Lehigh Valley this summer at different locations, we will update this page once those camps are public. Thank you.
Children don’t have to stop learning and exploring just because school is out; our camps offer a great opportunity for children to explore and use their creative minds. Camps generally run during the summer and over spring break, but we do offer one-day camps during teacher in-service days, school holidays, winter break and even snow-days.
Our week long summer camps are either half day or full day and run Mon-Fri; they are open to children ages 5 and up (2 hour camps for younger children are also available – see below). Each day is packed with model building, creative sessions and fun. Prices for each camp varies and can be found on the enrollment page. Full day camps incorporate both the morning and afternoon camps with time for lunch in-between (food is not provided).
Half Day Camps:
AM Camp 9:00AM – 12:00PM
PM Camp 1:00PM – 4:00PM
*Early drop-off and late pick-up are available for an additional cost and must be coordinated with Bricks4Kidz prior to the camp start date.
