About our Camps

Since 2014, W.A.F.F.L.E.S. Community Robotics has run LEGO robotics summer camps to suit a variety of ages, experience levels, and interests.  In 2019, we offered four unique camps for ages 6-10, 8+, and 10+.  We strive to create programs that blend fun activities and outdoor time with engaging lessons and the hands-on application of learning.  In our camps, students have the opportunity to work on projects independently and in groups for a well-rounded experience.  Our staff is comprised of knowledgeable students and alumni from our robotics teams, and often are able to work one-on-one with students to teach them in their areas of interest.

W.A.F.F.L.E.S. Community Robotics is a not-for-profit organization, and all the proceeds from the camps go directly to supporting our robotics teams.  Check out our other website pages for more information!

2019 Camp Descriptions

July 8-11, 2019: Mindstorms Mania (ages 10+) – Full!

Back by popular demand!  In the Mindstorms Mania camp we will use LEGO EV3 and NXT kits to build a range of robotic projects.  We will use our creativity to add onto and modify our designs, then bring them to life with the programming skills we learn!  This is a small and specialized camp for anyone interested in inventing something unique of their own, so secure a spot while you can!

PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately our Mindstorms Mania camp is only 4 days in length due to a scheduling conflict at the venue on the Friday. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

 

July 15-19, 2019: LEGO and Literature (ages 6-10)

Back by popular demand, adapted for a younger age group!  Join us as we explore some more of our all-time favourite stories!  Together we will not only learn great life-lessons on topics including teamwork, communication, and time-management, but we will use these stories as inspiration to explore engineering and programming challenges using LEGO robotics.   A range of fun and educational activities will introduce students to the world of engineering!

*Note: strong reading skills are not a requirement–stories will be read aloud by counsellors.

 

July 22-26, 2019: FLL Jr. Mission Moon (ages 6-10) – Full!

Back by popular demand!  Together we will learn the importance of “Core Values” as we use LEGO to explore our week’s special theme of outer space!  A variety of hands-on learning activities, teamwork exercises, and games will help develop a broad range of skills all in these budding engineers of tomorrow!

PLEASE NOTE: Mission Moon is the same challenge that teams were presented with through our fall FLL Jr. Program. If your child participated with us in the fall, they are still welcome to attend the summer camp and choose a different topic to learn about! There is lots of variance.

 

July 29-August 2, 2019 – Lego STEAM Stimulation (ages 8+) – Spots remaining!

New this year!  Throughout the week, we will use Lego robotics to learn about science, technology, engineering, arts, and math.  Each day we will work on fun, hands-on projects that focus on a different letter of the STEAM acronym.  In addition, we will have group games and outdoor time to keep our minds sharp and the week well-rounded.
