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. 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, kids 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 kids will build and fly two rockets! After the flights, the children take their rockets home.

This year at Fall Rocket Camp, the rockets are the never-before-used Star Trooper and the always-popular Alpha III. Children will need to bring a lunch that does not require refrigeration. A hat and sunscreen are strongly recommended. All camp materials are provided.

Parents can register in person at HRPO. Parents can also register online at WebTrac.

Registration is not complete, regardless of payment, until HRPO has received completed copies of three forms, which will be made available the week before registration begins. The forms must be submitted within three business days of payment.

Tell all the other parents you know, and don’t wait until the last minute to register!
