Kids Build and Create at Inspire to Learn and Imagine Summer Camps

March 28, 2024

Kids are natural engineers and problem solvers. Given the right tools, they will explore, create, and learn while having fun! 

This belief was key when Inspire to Learn and Imagine (I2LI) was founded by Lily Skop in 2015 here in the amazing state of Colorado. That belief continues to shape our classes and camps today!

Studies have repeatedly shown that children learn best when provided with both mental and physical stimulation around a problem. That is why we provide thoughtful, hands-on programs for children ages 6-14 to allow them to flex their creative muscles. We seek to enable children to do what they do best: learning and imagining through inspiring hands-on STEAM projects and challenges.

I2LI offers hands-on, fun camp experiences. Each camp is a half-day and runs Monday to Friday during a summer week. Morning sessions run 9:00 AM–12:00 PM, while afternoon classes are 1:00 PM–4:00 PM.

Camps take place at Recreation and Event Centers near you, including Castle Rock Recreation Center (Castle Rock), Trails Recreation Center (Centennial), Northridge and Southridge Recreation Centers (Highlands Ranch), The PACE Center (Parker), and more!   

Escape Room Creators (ages 8-14)

Escape school-break boredom with our innovative Escape Room Creator camp! With a variety of themes, each session brings something new to the table. Participants will unravel mysteries, break codes, follow clues, solve puzzles, and decode ciphers.

We emphasize teamwork, creativity, analytical skills, memory, and problem-solving. Kids will work in teams to create their own mini-escape rooms! On the last day, we challenge them to escape from an I2LI room inspired by the theme of the week!

Summer Themes: MindCraft Trap Escape and Mummy's Tomb Escape

STEMplicity LEGO® Camps (ages 6-12) 

Calling all young LEGO Engineers... start building and creating! 

Campers will practice building models, gadgets, machines, and rides using LEGO® technic bricks, motors, batteries, and tablets. Kids will leverage their science and engineering skills in each creation and challenge. The focus is inspiring campers to create by using their imagination, creativity, and natural curiosity skills through fun themes and ideas.

We use motors, battery packs, and WeDo 2.0, which really gets the projects moving!

Summer Themes: MindCraft Adventures and Mummy's Tomb Adventures 

Advanced Robotics (ages 8-14)

Kids grow critical thinking and creativity skills in this mind-blowingly fun Robotic Inventions camp.

Campers learn how ideas can become reality as they begin building cool model robots and finish with creating their own designs using Mindstorms EV3 systems.

Their creations will move, adjust speed levels, make robots turn, avoid obstacles, and more!

We do our best to provide reasonable prices for all our families! Prices vary slightly by location due to rentals and fees.
