Brickineers Summer Camps!

July 6-10, August 17-21 and August 24-28 at MLCA!

Brickineers Premiere Robotics Camps are a funtastic way for children and kids to spend a holiday week! LEGO or VEX Robotics summer camps help kids become leaders of tomorrow by learning how to collaboratively engineer solutions and model real-world challenges! All camps are hosted by an engineer/educator and his son. Kids learn multidimensional aspects of engineering, automation, and coding to accomplish a series of innovative challenges in grade-appropriate robotics summer camps. While they don’t get to take their automatons home at the end of summer camp they do get to keep their new friendships, valuable coding, problem-solving, and programming skills. STEM skills we hope they will continue to grow and develop.
