Your child's in for an action-packed week focused entirely on rockets and the physics of rocket flight! After learning the model rocket safety code, campers will build different types of rockets and participate in rocket launches during the week-long program. Children will be divided into three groups: altitude trackers, launch preparers, and launchers for rocket launches and will get the opportunity to try different roles. Note: We will launch rockets and your child will build several types of rockets. Our camp includes everything your child needs during our camp day. However, if you wish to continue your child’s interest in rocket launches outside our camp, you will need to purchase a launch kit from Walmart or a hobby shop.

Before and after-care is available for the camp. Please call 618-655-1460 to register for this camp.
