What is the camper: staff ratio?
Our average camper: staff ratio is 10:1. As camp enrollment increases, additional instructors will be assigned to counsel the week-long camp program.
What is the maximum camp enrollment?
Twenty campers is the maximum number of children that can enroll in any one of our seasonal (including summer, winter break, spring break) camps.
What should my child bring to camp?
Snack: In our ½ day camps, we will take a brief break to have a snack. Please send a non-perishable snack. Because of food allergies, please do not send anything with peanuts or peanut butter.
Is there anything that my child should not bring to camp?
- Lego® Bricks from home
- Electronic devices, including but not limited to, IPODS/MP3 Players, CD players, video games, tablets, laptops
- Any item(s) for sale or distribution, including but not limited to trading cards, and etc. are not permitted at camp.
These items will be turned into a teacher and returned to the parent/guardian at the end of the day. Please understand that bringing items from home can result in the item being lost or misplaced. Bricks 4 Kidz is not responsible for any personal possessions that are lost, stolen, or misplaced.
As a parent, I’d feel comfortable if my child was equipped with a means of direct communication in case of emergency. Are cell phones an exception to the Bricks 4 Kidz policy on electronic devices?
Though we understand the reasoning for mobile devices as a safety precaution, Bricks 4 Kidz highly discourages campers from bringing cell phones. If campers do bring cellular phones with their approval of their parent/guardian, they are to remain off and put away while camp is in session. Bricks 4 Kidz is NOT responsible for damages or loss of any personal property while at camp. Campers will be allowed to store a backpack or bag if needed while at camp.
Who are the instructors?
Instructors are individuals who have a great interest and ability in teaching STEM to students in an exciting way; all of our camp instructors have also taught classes for Bricks 4 Kidz, and assisted us to develop curriculum during the school year. Each instructor is qualified to teach enrichment classes/camps, and undergoes training sessions that focus on classroom supervision and youth management, as well as each software and technology associated with specific course products. In addition, all instructors go through a criminal history and sexual predator background check, and are fingerprinted within the counties they work.
Do students take home their projects after camp?
Since we use our LEGO® supplies in classes and camps throughout the year, students do not take home projects or pieces. There are some occasions that students will take home non-LEGO® related projects that they create in our camps.
What is the typical age range – will my child be too young or old compared to the rest of the class?
We will divide the students into groups based on their age and skill level. In a full camp, comprised of both beginner and intermediate campers, multiple instructors will be available to work with each group. The base projects, lessons and software used in a class or camp are the same for all students; however, older students will work on intermediate or advanced model builds that are more intricate, detailed, and enhanced with extras.
Will there be adult supervision throughout the day?
Yes! Our staff supervises the students throughout the day, both in class, as well as during the snack breaks.
Are refunds provided?
Because spots fill up quickly, we will NOT grant any refunds requested within 1 week of the start of camp. Refunds are ONLY provided if requested two weeks prior to the camp start date; in the case that a child is registered and a parent/guardian inquires about a refund two weeks prior to the camp start date, Bricks 4 Kidz will honor a 50% reimbursement of camp tuition. Refunds will NOT be offered for attending partial weeks, sickness, or closures due to inclement weather.
