Lego Camps



Play-Well TEKnologies believes in “Teaching Engineering to Kids” through play.
We explore, solve problems, and express ourselves with LEGO® materials.  Play-Well is not a franchise organization.  We have a loyal following dating back to 1997.  Many of our students take our camps multiple times, and some even become Play-Well assistants and instructors!
