An Action-Packed Camp for Future Innovators

Now in it's 10th year, Robot Academy is Columbus' ORIGINAL and longest-running Lego Robot Camp. This summer, the academy is hosting camps in seven locations: Dublin, Powell, Gahanna, Westerville, Granville, Grove City, and Marysville.  At these action-packed summer camps, kids age 5-15 design, build, and program working Lego robots (using Lego Mindstorms EV3) to solve real-world challenges.  Licenced teachers and world-champion Lego Robotics instructors guide kids through engaging and fun STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) activities. All teachers have passed background checks.

What's unique about our Lego Robot Camp? Lego robotics has become very popular in recent years, and imitation Lego Robot Camps have sprung up across the country. Our camp is the longest-running Lego Robot Camp in Columbus, and it's the only camp that's taught by actual world champion robot-builders and technology teachers. We also have the best student:teacher ratio in the industry, and because of this one-on-one interaction between students and instructors we're able to customize camp activities to the skill level of individual students. Finally, our camp is designed to build confidence. Every student is awarded a trophy and/or medal that recognizes specific accomplishments (no participation awards). Our students frequently leave camp saying "this was the best day of my life!" and "I want to be an engineer!"

P.S. More info is available later when you're clicking on individual camps from the registration page.
P.P.S. If you can't decide which camp is best, choose the Lego Robot MegaCamp because it combines all the best aspects of our other camps.

Full-Length Camps:

1. Lego Robot MegaCamp

Format: 5-day, all-day... $475 (register with a deposit of $195)
Learning Focus: Building, Programming, and Creative Problem-Solving!
Overview: Our most popular option for budding engineers who love Legos. Students win trophies, medals and ribbons to reward their achievements. Compete in an epic BattleBot championship, practice EV3 programming, and invent new robot designs. Everything you need to become a Lego Robot Master Builder!
Includes all of the material from our shorter camps: If you sign up for the MegaCamp, you do not need to sign up for any of our other camps.

2. Lego Robot (+Gaming) MegaCamp

Format: 5-day, all-day... $475 (register with a deposit of $195)
Learning Focus: Building, Creative Problem-Solving, and Gaming!
Overview: This camp is similar to the MegaCamp listed above, but students will compete in gaming competitions (including Minecraft, as well as other age-appropriate games) in the afternoon instead of completing robotics programming projects.
Our Only Gaming Camp: Please note that students registered in our other camps will NOT be exposed to gaming.

Mid-Length Camps:

1. Robotics Engineering Camp

Format: 4-day, half-day (Mornings)... $190
Learning Focus: Robot Building
Overview: Learn real-world engineering principles from Lego Robot world champions. This camp is the foundation for our other camps, and we recommend this camp for first-time Robot Academy students who aren't able to attend a MegaCamp. Students solve Lego Robot challenges and win trophies for their accomplishments! Students will also be given an overview of Lego EV3 programming using the BattleBot robots.

2. BattleBot Programming Camp

Format: 4-day, half-day (Afternoons)... $190
Learning Focus: Robot Programming
Overview: This camp features our famous BattleBot championship, where student-made robots "battle to the death". With the help of world champion instructors, students will learn to program BattleBots in the Mindstorms EV3 language using sensors and logic. Beginners (and younger students) will master basic programming, while experienced programmers (and older students) will learn more advanced techniques for ensuring the success of their BattleBots.

Shorter Camps:

1. BattleBot Jumpstart Camp

Format: 2-day, half-day (Weekends)... $95
Learning Focus: Exposure to Robotics Concepts
Overview: Looking for a camp to fit a small budget or busy schedule? In this camp, kids build and program Lego robots to compete in an abbreviated version of our BattleBot experience! The robots will battle “to the death”, and the designers of the "last robot standing” for each round will win the coveted championship ribbons.

2. Invent-A-Bot Camp

Format: 1 full day (Friday)... $95
Learning Focus: Creative Problem-Solving
Overview: This is a new and exciting camp that encourages practical problem solving and innovation through inventing with Lego Robotics. Our teachers have won numerous national and international invention competitions, but more importantly they have years of experience teaching practical innovation to young students.
