Camp Sessions

Are you going to be in grades 5-8 grade next year? Are you someone interested in presentations, building, designing, programming, making props, research and developing new solutions to problems in the world, and making new friends all at the same time? If you answered YES!, then you need to come the Robodogs Summer Robotics Camp.

We are so glad that you are interested in joining our camps. We have been running this camp for over 8 years and over time we have developed a camp that excites students to work through problem solving and coding.

Each year we develop new challenges to keep things fresh. We offer a variety of challenges that meet the needs of students who are brand new to robotics with zero experience to those who have years of experience.

We believe in working together to challenge students. Our camp ensures that each student works with the robot as well as the programming. We have plenty of robots to meet the numbers of students. We operate in a 1:1 student to robot ratio where each student will have their own robot to program and build. We will mix in team challenges, but we believe that each student should be able to bring their own ideas to life.

This camp is open to any student from any school. We want any student to have the chance to learn to program and problem solve using LEGO EV3 robots.

The camp is ran during the first weeks of June. You can choose your time of day when you fill out the registration form below.

Signing up is the first step to securing your spot, payment makes is guaranteed.

The Robodogs are having a mandatory Robodog meeting to discuss details about the upcoming summer camp, expectations of the camp, as well as details about the Robodogs team and the season. This is a very highly motivated, full commitment, high expectation program and team that we would like for you to consider being part of for the next season for First Lego League.

An informational meeting will take place at 6:00 pm in the cafeteria at Bettendorf Middle School on Monday, April 3rd. During this meeting we will go over expectations, format, and answer any questions you have.

Based on the summer camp we will select team members for the Robodogs First Lego League season. This camp and our selection process is looking for the best of the best! Our summer camp is open to any student from any school, but our Robodog team is limited to only Bettendorf students due to district reasons. During we camp we only focus on learning and with three coaches we have an excellent instructor to student ratio ensuring quality learning and support.

We look forward to another amazing year of learning robotics, speaking skills, research development, and creating solutions to real world problems. We hope to see you at the meeting. Spread the word and let your friends know about this opportunity.

Robodog Camp (grades 5-8)

The three sessions of Robodog camp is designed for all levels of experience with robots. This camp is intended to challenge students in a variety of tasks involved around building, coding, and problem solving skills. Come ready to learn how to build, how to code, and how to push yourself beyond your comfort zones.

Sumobot Camp (grades 3-8)

We will also be hosting one session of Sumobots camp. This camp is designed to allow students to build a robot and battle other robots in our sumo arena. Come ready to build, program, and challenge your friends in some head to head robot action.
