Camp-tathalon! is a chance for kids to flex their muscles through classes built around popular sports and competitions. Classes include basketball, soccer, archery, fencing, martial arts, chess, and more.

Play Well camps are fun-filled experiences with LEGOs built around unique themes that kids love. This year we will be hosting 1 Play-Well camp a month on the following themes:

  • Jedi Engineering (June)
  • Harry Potter Magical Engineering (July)
  • Minecraft Engineering (August)

Each of these camps is a 1/2 day of LEGO-filled fun, which can be extended for a full day on the same theme. Ages 5-9 will have LEGO materials classes in the morning, and 10-14 in the afternoon.

Register for 2019 Camp Invention at St. Thomas. This year’s theme is Supercharged and features:

Children team up to rebuild ships and design underwater equipment in Deep Sea Mystery™.

In DIY Orbot™, participants explore circuit boards, motors and gears as they design a remote-control bot to take on obstacles from sports to dance.

Children collaborate with inventor superheroes and take on the role of engineers, fabricators and innovators to conquer villains in Innovation Force™.

Kids become successful entrepreneurs in Farm Tech™, as they code bots to turn a polluted wasteland into a money-making machine and create devices to save animals.
