Flight Academy

From the earliest flying machines to the first rocket flights, this hands-on program for children ages 7-12 will allow them to build many different flying devices, see how Newton’s Laws of motion help explain how things move and how rockets fly and show them how amazing our Milky Way is. There's a different theme each day:


The “Wright” Stuff

Children will explore the fundamentals of aerodynamics in this hands-on program about how things fly. From the basic principles of flight to building airplanes, testing them in wind tunnels, to hovercraft and balloon helicopter building, children will understand what makes things fly and how different types of aircraft fly. They experiment with balloon helicopters, boomerangs and mini Frisbees. Campers will take home a rubber band powered airplane and various paper airplane designs.


It’s An Up Thing!

This program will explore the role that wind and the movement of air, plays on simple flying devices such as kites, hot air balloons and parachutes. Children will experiment with solar bags, parachutes and build their own kites during this hands-on look at early flight.


The Milky Way

What is the Milky Way and how do we know what’s up there? Children will explore the celestial sphere, learn about celestial navigation and build their own sundial, planisphere and even a refracting telescope while discovering the wonders of the Milky Way.


Newton’s Loco-Motion

Sir Isaac Newton was very curious about how things move. Discover Newton’s Laws of Motion and something called inertia in this hands-on program all about motion. Children will experiment to learn how inertia works and how gravity is a physical force that keeps all objects “stuck” to the Earth. They will decorate their own camp T-shirt to take home.


Rockin’ Rockets

Campers will learn the fundamentals of rocketry throughout this day including the parts of a rocket, the stages of rocket flight and how Newton’s third law applies to a rocket traveling to space. The children will experiment with water rockets and stomp rockets during this fun, day filled with hands-on activities. Campers build their own model rocket to take home.
