For centuries humanity wondered what it would be like to fly, and then fly into space. Of course, it's no longer fantasy due to the hard work of the Wright brothers, Robert Goddard and others—but the thrill of watching (or being inside) a hot-air balloon, helicopter, jet, rocket or spacecraft never seems to leave us.

At Fall Rocket Camp, children will learn a brief history of flight as well as the basics of rocket science. They will also learn the safety procedures required for a safe launch and recovery. Then—the children will build and fly one rocket each day! After the flights, the children take their rockets home.

This year at Fall Rocket Camp, the rockets are the ubiquitous E2X and the patriotic Yankee (both pictured below). Children will need to bring a lunch that does not require refrigeration. A hat and sunscreen are strongly recommended. All camp materials are provided.
