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.

You may mail your registration/camp fee payment to us,
or you may pay online using a credit card (through PayPal).

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.  (Campers will also learn how to program EV3 robots, but they will not be allowed to keep the EV3 robots.)

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.)

Intro to Aviation

Taxi, Takeoff, Fly, and Land! Learn about the aviation industry and the basics of flight all in one. This camp focuses on hands-on learning how to fly through simulation. Students will also get an opportunity to learn about the history of flight, aviation careers, airplane structural designs and so much more. Students will gain a broad perspective of what the aviation industry can offer to them as a career choice.

Intro to Drones

Build and fly your very own drone!  Campers will construct a drone and learn how to fly it safely and ethically.  They will learn about Federal Aviation Administration regulations regarding drone use.  After learning about the principles of flight, campers will learn drone flight maneuvers and participate in flight control and accuracy challenges.  Campers will also learn about drone history, use, and careers.  No prior experience with drones is necessary.  At the conclusion of camp, campers will receive a certificate of training and will keep the drone they built.
