Winter Camps for Ages 5 - 9

Looking for a unique educational experience that will challenge and excite your child during winter break? Our camps teach students technology skills through fun, engaging and dynamic projects, many of which feature special LEGO® components, such as battery packs, motors and gears.

From robotics to game design, TechKnowHow camps provide supportive, teacher-led instruction followed by hands-on learning experiences that let students use technology in creative ways. Campers gain technical skills along with confidence as they explore, create and problem-solve.

All camps also include team-building, group games and recess activities to provide time for shared fun and a chance to get to know fellow campers.
