Kidizens LEGO Camps for the SF Bay Area

Would your child like to build and be the Mayor of an entire city of LEGOs?

Would you like to leverage your child’s love of LEGOs to help them learn critical real-life,
21st century skills and strategies?

Kidizens inspires students to become good citizens and future leaders, one LEGO brick at a time. The Kidizens LEGO Leadership Camps include intensive action and excitement-packed sessions, where children create their own small civilization built with LEGOs and serve as Co-Mayors for a week. The Co-Mayors manage the economy, the residents and their needs, city departments and services and deal with unexpected problems and situations in an age-appropriate manner. In a fast-paced dynamic environment, the kids develop leadership, SEL and interpersonal skills while working together to problem solve and deal with natural disasters, resident problems and financial crises.
This is a rare opportunity for kids to role play as responsible leaders in addition to wearing many other hats – think out of the box and on their feet, problem solve and come to decisions in a fast, action-packed, exciting environment. They also learn how to develop a public policy platform and campaign as well as address residents through speeches against a real opponent.

General FAQ

Kidizens Fall & Winter camps come in many varieties! The shorter 1-day camps are packed full of action, excitement, and civic duty! The longer camps allow us to dive into more details and make space for more building challenges, creativity, and innovation!

Yes, your child can join their sibling or friend in a different age group. Participants who know each other from before camp can partner up and work on their city together regardless of age.
Campers are grouped in pairs of 2-3 based on their age. If you are joining camp with a friend or sibling you can request to be put into the same group if you would like.
Yes, we do offer after care from 3 to 5pm during most of our camp sessions. If you did not initially sign up for extended care you can always add it at a later point during the session. Likewise, if you no longer need extended care we can offer a refund.
All camp and class participants must be at least 6 years old to participate in our programs. We do make some exceptions for children aged 5 years and 9 months who are attending with a sibling.
All parents or guardians are required to fill out the electronic Kidizens Sign-In Form at drop off. Only authorized adults listed during registration may pick up a child from one of our programs.

Please make sure to bring an easy to carry lunch, a separate snack, a water bottle, appropriate clothing for the time of year, and an optional mask. Please note that Kidizens is a completely NUT-FREE camp.

LEGO building is just a small part of what the children get to experience here at our unique LEGO Camps! While they are super engaged with LEGO building, they get the experience of breaking out into engaging and educational discussion sessions that cultivate and challenge their civic leadership learning journey. We recognize the importance of getting some fun-in-the-sun and physical activity here at Kidizens, so while the children are getting immersed in LEGO building, they will also get some time outdoors in designated areas and use of other amenities based on location(s) during lunch break and the two snack breaks under supervision from the counselor(s). Based on our specific Summer Camp location and their grounds/amenities, we will plan a wide range of outdoor activities during these breaks.

Covid FAQ

Health and safety is alway a top priority here at Kidizens! We will always be in compliance with CDC and local mask mandates, and will revisit any changes closer to Summer. Currently face-mask coverings are not required, but we encourage those who feel more comfortable wearing them to do so. We still continue to promote the highest level of cleanliness in the office with sanitary hygiene practices like frequent hand washing/sanitizing. Everyday at drop-off/check-in, parents are to fill out our Sign In Form to clear children’s health status to be able to participate in the day. Most importantly, if a child is feeling sick or is showing symptoms we ask that they please be taken home.

Yes, all of our staff is fully vaccinated and boosted.

We still encourage you to make sure your child brings their own snack and an easy to carry lunch for camp activities to ensure they have something they are sure to enjoy. With that said, Kidizens will have some snacks available to offer kids!

Yes, parents and family members will be permitted to enter the facility.

Individuals who are immunosuppressed (as defined by their medical professional) or live in a home with an immunosuppressed person should consult with their doctor(s) before deciding whether or not to participate in an in-person program. Though we are taking extensive actions to keep our camp safe, Kidizens is not able to guarantee that a person on our site will not be exposed to COVID-19; thus, participation in an in-person program is not recommended for individuals with known vulnerabilities that put them at greater risk.
