This camp introduces the enjoyment of flying drones to the real-world application of learning how to use drones in emergency response situations. This is an action-packed and creative program where teams of campers (flight squads) face off, taking on both the “rescuer” and the “victim” mentality. Throughout the week, campers will participate in fun, yet realistic role-playing missions while they attempt to outsmart and out-maneuver the opposing team. Flight squads also will work together to conduct mock search and rescue challenges - all in a safe and friendly competitive environment. Campers will certainly earn their wings, take pride, and gain confidence with each assignment. The key will be how well each team works together and  within their flight squads to conquer the adventures at hand. Also included in this program are the innovative Drobots Drone Games, including challenges and concepts such as: Keys To Millions; Spy Drone, Drones To The Rescue, Drone Pod-Racing, and more.

Get ready to pitch, yaw, roll, and thrust around the Drone Arena in this exhilarating camp program. Throughout the week, campers will enjoy one of the world’s fastest-growing sports, Drone Racing. Campers will first learn about the basic safety of drone flying before fine-tuning their hand-eye coordination skills and free fly the drone. Campers will advance through an abundance of skill challenges, both in the air and on the ground, as they learn how to perform various exercises and maneuvers to become familiar with the drone’s speed and agility. Each day, teams of “flight squads” post up against one another in friendly competition as they race against not only one another, but also the clock. Pilots will first maneuver the drone through creative yet compact obstacle courses before taking on the challenge of flying for speed. There is a creative component to this camp program, as flight squads will help to create the course design and then help build the obstacle course in preparation for the last day’s final activities and Drone Olympic competition.
