Holiday camps

Our holiday LEGO® camps take place during half term and term breaks.  Camps are typically one week long and run for two to three hours each day. Some camps offer a different type of building activity each day, other camps focus on a particular project that may take up to one week to complete. 

We will be offering a full day option from 9:30 to 16:15 at the Mini-Engineers pop-up iLab in Paddington.  To sign up for the full day option, please book your child into both the morning and afternoon camps (we will look after you child during the 45 minute break at no additional charge).

Come and join us at this two-day camp as we travel back in time! Firstly, to the Mesozoic era when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. Children will learn about the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods and will build different dinosaur species from each of the periods along with the changing earth environments from that time. On the second day, we will fast forward 64.5 million years to the most recent Ice Age. Children will discover how early humans lived in prehistoric times and some of the amazing animals that lived all those years ago.

"Our two sons have never been big fans of holiday camps until Mini-Engineers.  Without fail, every day after I had collected them, our drive home would be filled with lots of exciting commentary about what they had achieved, created and shared that day. They attended a week's camp, and loved every minute of it.   Mini Engineers offers children a genuinely fulfilling and educational experience, whilst at the same time, they learn to work together as a team. Great skills are being taught for life."

"Thank you for providing my boys with what they call 'the best week ever'!  Already avid Lego designers and builders, their week at camp sparked a new level of enthusiasm for building. They came home each day wanting to build upon what they had done at camp, and Brennan even assigned himself 'homework' to prepare for what he would build the next day.   Your approach to teamwork and cooperation through building instilled in all my children a great sense of pride and accomplishment!"
Betsy S. (mum)
"My son said it is “the best club ever!!"  Yvette has thought of everything even down to stickers.  We will definitely be doing another camp."

Cecilia C. (mum)
“Our two boys had such a fantastic time attending the Mini-Engineers class. They absolutely loved the idea of designing their own car and participating with their models in a race competition!  The kids were very much involved and the teachers were ready to help out if anyone needed extra help.  Once we came home the boys wanted to make car models again and have another race!  Absolutely wonderful class!”
