"It was the best day of my whole life!" -Blake (student)

"My 9 year old son attended this Lego Robotics camp last summer and it was one of the highlights of his entire summer... He learned a lot and had a wonderful time. The camp leaders are fabulous young role models. We highly recommend this camp. It is well run, fun, and awesome for any Lego fan. Both of my sons will attend it this year." -Crystal (parent)

"Thank you for the wonderful experience your camp provided to [my grandson]. He is already talking about wanting to do it again next year... you clearly have a unique touch with these [boys and girls]. It was certainly one of the best experiences of his year, and just what grandparents want to offer as a treat for their grandchildren." -Alison (grandparent)

"I bought my son a robotics kit last year and it sat on the shelf, but after the first day at robot camp he came home and was building designs of his own."   -Amy (parent)

"Thank you so much for the great camp! Sawyer had a great time and I was so happy to see how organized and fun it was for him. " -Julia (parent)

"Finally, I've found my people!"  -Logan (student)  

"My son said that yesterday at camp was the best day of his life."  -Denise (parent)

We just want to thank you for the wonderful experience [our son] had at Lego Robotics Camp. He absolutely loved it and is excited to do more.  As homeschoolers, it is tough sometimes to find those social activities that meet the needs of our children.  We are grateful that we found out about the camp at GHC homeschool convention.  It was especially reassuring to read the safety measures put in place for the children at the camp.  We felt at ease knowing you had thought about those concerns too.  Thank you. It was a wonderful experience for him.  We will see you next year! -Tom and Crystal (parents)

A Tradition of Fun and Excellence

Now in it's 10th year, Robot Academy is Columbus' ORIGINAL and longest-running Lego Robotics Camp. This summer, the academy is hosting a variety of technology camps in seven locations near Columbus (Dublin, Powell, Gahanna, Westerville, Granville, Grove City, Marysville) and one in Pittsburgh, PA.  At these action-packed summer tech camps, kids age 4-16 design, build, and program working Lego robots (using Lego Mindstorms EV3) and invent contraptions using 3D Modeling/Printing.  Licensed 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. At some locations (Gahanna, Grove City and Westerville), we even offer gaming tournaments (with Minecraft!) set up by Mr. Game Room.

What's unique about our Summer Tech Camps? First of all, we're the only camp that combines Inventing and 3D Printing with Lego Robotics. 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!"

Every student wins one of these for accomplishments at camp!
