Penguins are flightless birds, and as such, camps for our youngest campers do not involve airplane flights at the end of camp. Penguins campers must be at least 6 years old by June 1 to attend a camp.
Registration for our 2021 Summer Camps opens on March 1. The cost to attend a Penguins camp is $300 per camper.
Campers spend every day having fun and learning new things about the world around them, as they explore math, science and technology from a very different perspective.
Penguins is a five-day virtual online camp for children who are 6-7 years old by June 1. Bugs That Fly is the theme of the camp.
Learn how things fly and what air is. Kites are a part of this fun, hands-on camp that includes rocket building, bug science and learning about aircraft weight & balance. Parts-of-the-plane fun will be learning about a bi-plane and so much more. Many of your toys/kits/supplies will be a part of your SFA package delivered to you.
Campers will start their day at 10 a.m. by interacting with their camp navigator and fellow campers for approximately one hour via a live Zoom session. During this session, the camp navigator will introduce campers to that day’s activities, conduct science demonstrations and offer guidance on self-directed projects.
Campers will have the opportunity to ask questions and contribute their knowledge during these sessions. All lessons and videos for the camp can be accessed through Canvas. This material will also guide the camper through how to use the supplies which are included in their SFA camp package. Some common household items and tools (not provided by SFA) will be needed in addition to the SFA camp package. A list of these items will be sent in advance of camp. Canvas material can be accessed 24 hours a day and will be available for 30 days after the camp session has ended.
Campers and navigators will meet up again at 2 p.m. and have another hour of interaction, going over that afternoon’s activities and getting to know each other better. Break-out sessions will allow smaller group interaction and the ability for more focused discussion and demonstrations by the campers. A virtual graduation ceremony will take place on Friday at the 2 p.m. Zoom session.
