This camp is designed to build the following character traits:
Independence: After a brief but comprehensive class lesson on theme for the day, campers work independently on their Lego-build creations, which they will then showcase to Mr. Lego and fellow peers in the last 10-minutes of the class.
Creativity: Campers have free reign to put all their energy and imagination into using their Lego to build creative structures, cities, and just about anything that comes to mind that aligns with the lesson plan.

Monday – Where No One Has Gone Before! Space…let's colonize Mars! So, we learn about NASA, then we need rocket ships, aliens, space stations, and a rover to get around the planet!
Tuesday – Engineering 101! How did we get around when we first arrived in Canada? On foot, on horseback...but what about rivers & valleys? We had to make Bridges – lots of them, different kinds discussed then many are built!
Wednesday – Nefertiti's Notions! Over 6,000 years ago there lived a woman named Nefertiti...she was responsible for many things, including the first 'base-10' number system! We find out about her, the math, then build ancient Egypt – pyramids, obelisks, the Sphinx and the Nile River!).
Thursday – Tales, Verses & Sonnets! Shakespeare – the man, the myth, the legend is discussed in detail...then we create a Shakespeare play with characters, the setting, and of course - a plot!
Friday – Damsels, Knights & Squires! How do you protect the 'good guys' inside the Medieval castle and keep the 'bad guys' outside? The defenses are learned, then the build is complete with moats, drawbridges, crenellations, and the Keep!
