Young Mayors Lego Leadership Camps
SF Bay Area

Kidizens teaches children to be responsible future leaders, one LEGO brick at a time! During our excitement-packed LEGO summer camps, children build, manage and govern a well-functioning, green city focused on sustainability as well as business building skills! They role-play as Mayors of their cities to tackle climate change, budget crises, civic protests, and more!

Our campers learn to become responsible citizens by developing social emotional skills, problem solving and critical thinking through fun, immersive role-play as mayors and leaders in a highly collaborative and engaging learning environment. The program incorporates many play-based elements, while utilizing our engaging civic-based curriculum to delve deeper into city planning. It’s tons of civic and LEGO fun!
