We offer activities for children ages 3-13+, including:

Summer Camps 2018: 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.
