Camps Offered in Summer 2015:



  1. Lego Action Jrs. – for the younger group of builders who are starting to build and can complete simple projects either by following instructions or by constructing their own creations using their own creativity.

  2. Lego Robotics- for campers who want to take their love of Lego’s to the next level. Campers build as many as 20 models or more and then program their models on a laptop to move and make noises. Campers can move on to learn to construct robots of their own design and program them. Campers have a choice of building from hundreds of sets too, playing Lego Games or free building and construction.

  3.  Lego Robotics/Scratch- for campers that love to build with Lego’s and would love to use a fun programming environment called Scratch to make animations and games. No prior experience is necessary. Campers also experienced with Scratch are included in this camp since both Lego’s and Scratch are both very open-ended projects. Our staff works with every camper to take him/her to the next level no matter what his/ her beginning point may be.

  4. American Girl – for the girl that loves American Girl books and dolls. Campers bring their dolls. However, we do much more than play with dolls. Sewing, art, jewelry making, fashion design and singing, dance and writing are just some of the activities.
