Your child will first learn about the different sensors and electronic modules on drones and controllers. Next, using Python coding, campers will tackle several flight challenges, with hands-on testing, trials, and troubleshooting that demonstrate the scientific approach. Critical thinking, teamwork, and fun are part of every day’s activities! Coding experience or not, we will advance your child’s knowledge.
Note that this summer there will be separate sessions; one for rising third to fifth grade children and one for rising sixth to ninth grade children. Counselors in Training (CIT) may apply for either one and must be rising tenth to twelfth grade students.
No previous coding experience is required, but children with coding experience will be challenged according to their skill level.
Games and flight challenges make the experience fun and engaging! At the end of the week, your child gets to showcase their work to friends and family.
This hands-on applied science program is structured to keep your child engaged, while offering the freedom to explore, create, test, and problem-solve alone or with a buddy. It’s a perfect mix of coding, hardware, and three-dimensional space – plus you get to fly! Your child just might discover a new passion.

The week of July 4th is automatically prorated to account for a Tuesday to Friday session.
