Monday – We’ll start with familiarity of paper plane making, adding in launchers and some competitions.  Beans Bags and Beach Ball are fun games designed to have the campers work as a team.

Tuesday – On the 2nd day well add in a more complicated plane build and a rubber band helicopter.  Frisbee Golf is a fun way for kids to learn about golf.

Wednesday – As the complexity grows, we’ll introduce DIY gliders highlighting subtle adjustments that can make a big difference.  Scooter Fun will consist of fun games on scooters, including hockey.

Thursday – Stepping in a different aeronautical direction, campers will construct a helium air balloon.  We’ll limber up the campers with games of Limbo and Twister.

Friday – Our Air/Water Compressed Rockets are a favorite.  Campers will be able to add a nose and fins to a 2-liter bottle to create their own rockets.  These rockets can go as high as 100’.  We’ll finish out the Camp with some fun water play.
