LEGO camp. A week of building with bricks big and small. How could a kid say no?
The centre has buckets of LEGO and assorted play areas. LEGO models made by staff and students line the shelf of the area.
There’s also a healthy selection of minifigs, Mixel packs, full LEGO sets, and LEGO t-shirts to tempt you after a full day of play.
The offerings at Bricks 4 Kidz vary from after school play time to weekend activities, school field trips, evening sessions, and summer day camps! The schedule breaks things out into half-day sessions, but you can book them back to back to make a full day summer camp experience that rolls from 9a to 4p.
Each session has a different theme ranging from Space Camp to Jurassic Worlds with some specialized camps for older kids to work on everything from animation and robotics.
Zacharie and Charlie took part in a Superhero session and a Mining and Crafting session.
Each day they’d have time for free play, team play, assigned builds based on the theme, and competitions making vehicles to rush down a ramp.
They’d get outside to play at a nearby park, and at the end of each session they brought home a little gift. There were Brick Forge accessory packs, daypack bags, keychains, custom-embossed bricks, and dog tags to mark their graduation from the program.
There were about 2 dozen kids in the day camp ranging in age from 5 to 12. It was mostly boys, but a handful of girls were up to the challenge of showing the boys what a master builder can really do.
What Zacharie liked best about day camp at Bricks 4 Kidz: “I really, really, really liked the free play and the awesome ideas that they do.”
What Charlie liked best about day camp at Bricks 4 Kidz: “Building the technic builds were my favorite.”
What I liked best about day camp at Bricks 4 Kidz: “The location was perfect, right near my office, and the play space area was bright and full of inspiration. A couple of young guys were on the team running the camp and could easily speak the language of the kids making it a relatable learning experience.”
