Description

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. We recommend this camp for children entering 2nd - 5th grade; however, children entering kindergarten and 1st grade will enjoy it as well with a little more help from fellow campers or instructors. 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.

Additional Information

Astronaut Training
This program will explore what makes rockets fly, the parts of a rocket are involved in flight, and how energy gets things moving! Campers will work in teams to launch rockets.
Go For Launch!
The final day in this week long program will focus on rocket transportation, rocket staging and advanced rocket launches. Campers will discover the advantages of rocket staging.
Mission Control
Campers will learn about the history of NASA’s rocket program and begin their exploration of the universe. Campers get to make their own Paper Tiger Rockets.
Mission Recovery
Rockets can travel into space but how are they propelled and how are they recovered? Campers will explore the concepts of propulsion and recovery systems through various hands-on activities. They will compare the features of different types of rockets.
Rocket Scientists
Campers will create a rocket journal to record all of their experimental data. They will learn the parts & functions of a rocket & the model rocket safety code. Children will build a bog-roll rocket.
