Some of the coolest camps around (in our opinion, anyway! :) are robotics camps for kids. The provide some of the most engaging and educational (not to mention fun!) experiences around.
Rolling Robots, right here in L.A., is one such program for kids ages 5 to 14. It's a Robotics and STEM Summer Camp that offers a wide range of camps, such as Rolling Robots Classic - Robots Rock, Lego Mindstorms (All-time Favorite), VEX IQ and VEX Building & Coding (Getting competition ready), Battle Robots Building, Minecraft 1.0, Digital Design and MOD (Java Coding) - for all Minecraft kids, APP Development, Scratch Coding and Junior Robot Coders.
When we look at summer camps, we always consider the supervision ratio as part of our review. Rolling Robots' 6:1 camper-to-staff ratio sounds pretty good to us!
Rolling Robots' first day of camp for the 2019 season is June 10. They operate 9am to 4pm with half-day, full-day, after-care options. Learn more about this program at RollingRobots.com.
