B4K Junior Robotics
How would you like to turn your next LEGO creation into a robot, programmed to do exactly what you tell it to do? Our new Junior Robotics camp offers all the fun of building with LEGO bricks, PLUS the excitement of computer programming! Using drag and drop icon-based WeDo software, campers are introduced to the world of computer programming and robotics that will engage them and encourage them to explore technology based activities and more complex robotics as they get older. This fun, action-packed week combines real-life skills with real-kid fun.
B4K Amusement Park Madness
Get your ticket to ride at Bricks 4 Kidz very own Amusement Park! Campers will build a new ride each day, learning how to make things spin, roll, turn and rock. During creative building time they will design and build concession stands, ticket booths and more. They will also take what they have learned to design their own thrills and challenges. Motorized models maximize the action and the fun. On the last day of camp – we will set up our own amusement park for exhibition!
CI Amusement Park Island – please see our Challenge Island website for further information
Kids get to dream up and create their own working amusement park at this awesome Challenge Island camp. Roller coasters, zip lines, and real flying rockets are just a few of the rad rides they’ll design using basic household and recycled materials. Your camper’s creativity is the limit on Challenge Island’s Amusement Park Island.
Mining and Crafting One
Minecraft is a game about placing blocks to build anything you can imagine. At night monsters come out, so be sure to build a shelter before that happens. Experience the world of Minecraft with LEGO bricks and on the computer in this fun summer camp! Kids will start by crafting their shelters and some of the mobs, critters and tools using LEGO bricks and face new challenges each day, building models and crafting key elements in the popular Minecraft game.
Mining and Crafting 2
Steve is jumping for joy as he introduces the newest members of his Minecraft world. Whether or not your child has attended Minecraft One, reward them with the creativity and excitement this new camp has to offer. Campers will be challenged to bring their virtual designs to life by building new mob figures, mosaics and custom models, incorporating LEGO bricks. They will also have time to play this popular game – but don’t worry we rotate in and out of activities. Are you ready for the challenge?
Enter into the world of Angry Birds and Bad Piggies… the Bricks 4 Kidz way! Campers will be challenged to physically build and destroy a level from the popular game of Angry Birds. Set your birds to flight by launching them on catapults and slingshots to destroy pigs. Build a working launcher to create things to knock down. Campers will have the ability to build different colored birds using LEGO bricks, along with models using our proprietary model kits.
Space Adventures with Challenge Island Rocket Blaster on the last day!
Inspired by NASA and Star Wars, our Space Adventures Camp is packed full of models that will make your imagination blast off! Each day, campers will learn about real-life space exploration and build models related to the NASA space program. In addition, the day includes LEGO Star Wars themed models, games and more. Bricks 4 Kidz Space Adventures camp provides the spark for imagination and creativity to take off on an adventure that’s out of this world! On the last day, campers will build their own stomp rockets out of recycled materials!
Lights, camera, LEGO! Take your creativity to the next level. Is the future Steven Spielberg enrolled here? We’ll find out after the campers build a movie studio and create an adventure movie with LEGO Bricks. After adding movie dialogue, sound effects music and graphics, they’ll create titles, credits and text. When the move is complete, they’ll impress other campers, teachers, friends and family with their movies posted on the web! We can’t wait to see some award winning movies! Final day of camp – parents are asked to join us for a special movie premier!
Teenage Brick Turtles
Teenage Brick Turtles! Practice engineering as you build two of the courageous turtles and their wise Japanese ratsensei, Master Splinter. Strengthen your ninjutsu skills to defeat the villainous Shredder and his evil Foot Clan. After a treacherous day of crime-fighting, don’t forget to give the turtles a break to enjoy a pizza down in their sewer dwelling under the city. Let’s build and play…Brick Turtle style!
