Young Mayors Lego Leadership Camps
SF Bay Area

At Kidizens, children’s passion and creativity are nurtured to help them become thoughtful and responsible citizens and future leaders, one LEGO brick, one LEGO city at a time. During our excitement-packed Bay Area LEGO Summer Camps, kids plan and create their own small LEGO civilization, thereby developing real-life skills and leadership strategies.

In a highly collaborative environment that nurtures social and emotional learning (SEL), immersive role play, and development of 21st century skills, the campers work together as Young Mayors to plan, build and govern the city of their dreams.
