WACO Offers Fun with Flight Day Camp

New This Year:

In addition to other S.T.E.M. day camps, WACO Learning Center is excited to add an aviation themed camp specifically for young aviators entering 1st-2nd grades. With early learners in mind, this camp will meet the week of July 27th- 31st, from 9 am-11 am at WACO Air Museum, 1865 S. County Rd. 25A, Troy, OH.    Fun with Flight Day Camp is a collection of STEM learning activities based on aviation themed children’s books.  Hands-on activities will engage the child as they make discoveries about Gliders in Nature (Form & Function), Balloons (Sinking & Floating), Parachutes (Fluid Thickness & Drag), Kites (Surface Area & Lift), Helicopters and Airplanes (Force & Thrust), and World Flyers (Geography & Global Trade).


This camp will be following the Ohio Department of Health guidelines for day camps which can be found at https://coronavirus.ohio.gov/static/responsible/Day-Camps.pdf.  In keeping with safety precautions, this camp is limited to the first nine registered students. Parents can register children under the LEARN tab at www.wacoairmuseum.org
