2011 already, no wait, it is almost February... It is amazing how fast things seem to move. I have a few things over the holiday season that I wanted to comment on my full time job, and the MOUNDS of snow have kept me busy.
Lets start this years posts with details from LEGO Camp. I was in Central One before Christmas and noticed a display for LEGO Camp at the Boroughs JCC. Having a kindergartner, LEGOs already fill my house. There are in the couch cushions, under the table, and of course in storage bins in the playroom. I was a LEGO man myself in younger days and really enjoyed building and creating so the opportunity for a LEGO camp sounded great.
The camp was run through a partnership with Play-well TEKnologies. They are based out of CA but have locations all over the US. The program run this winter at the Boroughs JCC was targeted for grades K - 3 and run at the same facility the Boroughs JCC Preschool occupies.
During the winter break from 9AM to 2PM my son was in delight. It is now almost 4 weeks later and he still talks about the program regularly, and his interest in LEGO is never been higher. He even took the photo book to school when it was his turn to share. I know the Boroughs JCC is planning on running more LEGO programs this summer and I am excited to sign him up again. For February they are partnering with FasTracKids to run an astronomy program. Based on the last success I am excited to see what they have planned next.
