Day Camp: Go Fly a Kite

October 9, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

Humans have always been fascinated with flying like the birds. Kites may seem like they are just for fun, but history shows kites are much more than a toy. Ancient Chinese used kites in battle and exploration. 18th century scientists used kites to study weather and electricity. The Wright Brothers would not have been able to invent the airplane without first experimenting with kites. Experimental kite materials led to improvements in parachutes and hang gliders. Campers are going to build a Kazoon Kite and do some experiments of their own. Get ready for some high-flying fun!

Explore & More follows New York State Health Department, NYS OCFS Regulations, and CDC guidelines, as we are a licensed School Age Child Care Program. Campers will need to provide lunch, two snacks and a water bottle.

Late pick up is available from 4:00-4:30 pm, $25 per child, per day.

MEMBERS $60 / NON-MEMBERS $65
