Camps at Engineering For Kids of South Kansas City
The Fun, Educational Camp Your Child Is Bound to Enjoy!
At Engineering For Kids, our camps are carefully structured to provide your child with the enrichment he or she needs to grow and thrive. Our camps run in the spring, winter, and summer for your convenience. Our programs come in many varieties to accommodate your schedule, such as half-day camps, full-day camps, and holiday break camps. We also host camps on scheduled days off for reasons such as professional work days, teacher conference days, etc.
Just a few of these beneficial opportunities include:
- Teamwork: Most of our camps schedule fun and engaging teamwork activities that teach children the value of investing in others.
- Resilience and motivation: Our challenging programs help to teach kids how to keep trying. This also helps them feel accomplished when they succeed, which develops their will to learn.
- Decision-making: Our uniquely structured activities help children establish and build upon great decision-making skills, which can help build confidence.
In addition, the wide range of activities and classes that we offer encourage children to try new things, which is a beneficial skill that can be applied in several instances throughout adulthood.
Morning Camp: Awaken the Force - Join the resistance and defeat the invaders! Use your engineering skills to design, build and test your own working light saber to defend your planet, build your tower defense to see the enemy coming and build a rocket to escape the invaders. Learn about engineering in a fun and hands-on way. This is a great way to experience mechanical, aerospace and civil engineering all in one camp!
Afternoon Camp: Robotic Missions and Battles - Build a robot out of LEGOS and learn to code it. Create programs for your robot so that it can participate in a tug of war, a sumo robot battle and more. This is a great way to learn about robotics engineering and coding.
