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!
Online Registration is available HERE.

As an astronaut preparing for your mission, you will explore robotics, rocketry and aviation as you prepare for your first mission! Campers will fly a Space Mission, visit the e-Planetarium, and fly planes with our simulators. Campers will keep the robot they assemble and the rocket they construct. (Campers will also learn how to program EV3 robots, but they will not be allowed to keep the EV3 robots.)
Be a rocket scientist! Learn how to build and launch rockets! Campers will keep the rockets they construct. Campers are encouraged to bring sunglasses to wear during rocket launches.
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
Learn about careers in 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, airplane structural designs and basic flight maneuvers.
For students who would like to earn their Private Pilot Certificate, our Advanced Aviation ground school includes seminars on topics tested on the FAA’s Private Pilot Knowledge Exam.
Intro to Drones
Build and fly your very own drone! Campers will construct a drone and learn how to fly it safely and ethically. After learning about the principles of flight, campers will learn drone flight maneuvers and participate in flight control and accuracy challenges. At the conclusion of camp, campers will keep the drone they built.
To legally earn income from flying a drone (even by selling a photo or video taken with a drone), the drone pilot must have a Remote Pilot Certificate issued by the FAA. Our Advanced Drone camp includes seminars on topics tested on the FAA’s Remote Pilot Certification Exam to prepare students for the exam.
