Building STEAM Summer Creativity Camps

TechBrainiacs and Bricks4Kidz are again joining forces to present our Building STEAM Summer Creativity Camps. We’re back and better than ever in 2017 with TWO new locations!

These full-length day camps will offer your child the opportunity to build their STEAM skills and digital literacy with daily tech lessons involving computer science, video games, engineering, LEGO construction, robotics, and much more! Our camp sites are fully equipped for fun, with a wide variety of awesome amenities. We won’t be swimming this year, but there will still be ample opportunity for outdoor play, including our extremely popular weekly squirt gun battles! All campers should bring a lunch from home each day, but a pizza party will be provided for everyone each Friday.

Every camper will receive a special reminder of their time at camp with your first week’s enrollment.

Theme Descriptions

BRAND NEW! Air, Land, and Sea – This week of camp features engineering challenges, science experiments, LEGO builds, and other activities all tied to exploring motion through the air, on land, and at sea. We’ll fly paper airplanes, run a spaghetti soapbox derby, build penny boats, and much more!


BRAND NEW! BattleBots Design Squad – Campers will work together in teams to conquer a series of engineering challenges, including designing and building their own BattleBot. They’ll then compete against other teams in a series of events, such as races, obstacles courses and, yes, battles.


BRAND NEW! Digital Storytelling – This week will have the kids exercising their creative muscle in new ways. They’ll use various digital tools such as Scratch, Canva, and others to create animated stories, comic books, and more. Our campers have the write stuff!


Game Design – There’s not much in this world that kids like doing more than playing games. From sports to board games to video games, they just can’t get enough. But what’s even better than playing? Making your own games – and that’s exactly what we’ll do this week! Campers will also enjoy revisiting classic arcade and retro games with fun LEGO builds and other activities.

Incredible Machines – Campers will explore the wacky world of Rube Goldberg machines using a variety of building materials and the Contraption Maker software. Plus, they’ll design and program LEGO EV3 robots, featuring state of the art motors and sensors, to perform a variety of functions.


Minecraft and More – Minecraft, Minecraft, and more Minecraft is what this week has to offer. Much of the time will be spent playing on our custom server with a selection of the coolest mods and maps. Campers will also make Minecraft bead art and other crafts, learn about real-life mining, build Minecraft-related LEGO models, and much more.


Multimedia Mashup – This week is all about creating new sights and sounds using fun digital software such as Scratch, Incredibox, Piskel, and many more. Campers will also create their own comic books.


Sci-Fi Adventures – Campers will learn about real-life space exploration with NASA-inspired builds, plus LEGO Star Wars themed models, games, and challenges. They’ll also have fun playing the acclaimed Portal physics puzzle games and using the included level editor to design their own puzzles.
