Summer Camp Spotlight:
The Fun of Flight
Take off to great heights in a new camp for kids aged 9 & up from June 9-13: The Fun of Flight!
In this class, students will learn about aerodynamics, look at the history and mechanics of flying machines, and create several of their ownincluding rubber band airplanes, helicopters, and rockets!
This camp runs from 1-4pm and pairs great with morning (9am-12pm) camps like Explore, Expand, Experiment or Art Trek: Discover your Creative Nature!
All of our Summer Camps are taught by professional artists and educators, and each is designed to give your child an opportunity to create and explore in the beautiful park-like setting of Montalvo's grounds.
