Summer Camps 2017

Real science and real fun…
here at the Challenger Learning Center of RCSD1!

Explanation of Summer Camp Deposits:
A $50 deposit is required to reserve your child’s summer camp registration.
This deposit is applied toward the summer camp fee.
For example, if the summer camp fee is $75, you will need to pay $50 to reserve your child’s spot.  You still owe $25 for the remaining camp fee.

Camps have limited enrollment!  Register early to get the camp you want!

Astronaut Academy

As an astronaut preparing for your mission, you will explore robotics and rocketry and aviation as you prepare for your first mission!  Campers will fly a full Space Mission, visit the e-Planetarium, and fly planes with our flight simulators.  Campers will keep the robot they assemble and the rocket they construct and launch.

Rocket Camp

Be a rocket scientist! Learn how to build and launch rockets!  Campers will keep the rockets they construct; if your rocket goes too high and is not recovered, we will provide you with another rocket kit before you leave camp. Campers are encouraged to bring sunglasses to wear during rocket launches.

Robotics Camp

Build a robot to keep every day!  All camps will also work with Mindstorm EV3 robots.  (Students will not be allowed to keep the robots constructed with the Mindstorm kits.)

Arduino Camp

Learn all about electricity! This camp is for students that want to pursue automation using an Arduino Uno development board. This is a unique camp to dive into the world of automation. (Students will not be allowed to keep the Arduino kits.) We will spend a day introducing sensors, inputs, outputs and basic functions and programming.

Fischertechnik Camp

Learn how automate! This camp teaches engineering design, programming and automation. We use the Fischertechnik building platform which is easy for the students to construct different automated systems. Students will learn the basics of flowcharting and logic to write programs for their systems.

RC PIlot Camp

Fly virtually and in reality! Campers are given the opportunity to learn the basics of flight and work on their flying capabilities virtually through flight simulation and in reality using radio controlled airplanes. This camp teaches the fundamentals of pre-flight inspection and basic flight. (Students will not be allowed to keep the radio controlled planes that are flown.) Campers are encouraged to bring sunglasses to wear during the radio controlled plane flight portion.
