The three you listed are very important though.
Those can all be taught easily during the school year leading up to build season. For a summer camp, wouldn't it be better to get the kids interested in the program first?
It looks like you're trying to teach technical skills for a short time in the summer, then relying on them to remember it again after school starts.
