WK: 1 | 9AM-12PM | Ages 6-10 | EBP: $335 | COST: $350

Let’s build a CITY! There are many different types of engineering jobs, and building is one of the most fun! What would a city be without the architects and engineers who come up with the ideas, plans and building skills to make it all come together? Campers will put their engineering and architecture skills to work as they collaborate and build city themed models, buildings, and vehicles using LEGO® Bricks. They’ll have a blast using custom-built cars to move the people of the city all around town – brick by brick! What an accomplishment to be able to proudly exclaim “We built this city!”
