Summer Circuits FAQ

What is the schedule for the camp?

Camp starts on 7/1 and ends on 8/30. It runs from M-F 9 AM- 3PM. There is no camp on 7/4 and 7/5.

I work and can’t make a 3 PM pickup. 

We provide after care for families that need it until 5:30 PM. This costs $30 per day. 

Where is the camp located?

This summer, Summer Circuits will be located at Marymount Manhattan College, 221 E. 71st Street. It is conveniently located to the 6 and Q trains.

What does the everyday schedule look like?

My child has an allergy and/or epi pen. Can they be accommodated?

We are asking that parents send children with nut-free lunches. Additionally, all staff will have completed CPR training by the first day of camp. 

My child has never built robots before. Is this ok?

We welcome beginners to our program. We are working on building up the soft skills that help engineers thrive like collaboration and teamwork.  

Do you provide lunch?

No. We are asking that parents send children with a peanut-free lunch and a snack. 

What will my child learn in the summer?

Students will gain confidence learning to build projects with their hands. They will learn how to use tools as well. They will be exposed to circuitry and basic concepts in engineering. We also focus on the soft skills of engineering like collaboration and teamwork. 


Where does the curriculum come from?

Brooklyn Robot Foundry has been in business for 13 years. Our curriculum and teaching methods are tested and kid-approved. We are sure that your child will be excited to learn with us everyday. 

My child tends to be very active. Sometimes it is hard for them to focus. How will you accommodate this?

We try to break up the day with movement breaks and outdoor play so that children can get their nervous energy out. Our instructors monitor the class mood and will adjust so that students can be comfortable and take breaks when needed. 

How do I choose what week?

Every week has five different robots based on four different themes: an agricultural Robot Farm, a medieval Robot Renaissance,  Time Travel Bots which draws inspiration from the past and the future and every day is a celebration in Party Party Bobotty. Here is the schedule:

Is this for girls?

We believe that everyone can learn and get excited about STEM and we do everything we can to create an inclusive environment. 


What does my child need to bring every day?

We ask that children bring the following: a nut-free snack, a nut-free lunch and a water bottle. Weather permitting, we plan to go outside everyday. Please apply sunscreen and bug spray to prepare for this.
